New!

Hi All.

Just thought I would sa hello as I'm a new member.

Bought my GSXS 1000 Naked in Candy red on 3/7/15 after being off the bike for a number of years. I must say the difference in the power and weight compared to my old fav the Bandit is incredible.

Has anyone else thought that the mirrors are a pain? I seem to be able to see more elbow than anything else and adjusting to how I want is a constant battle? Or am I comparing too much to the Bandit's old round mirrors?

Looking forward to viewing an adding to the forum...

Happy riding!

Bosi Gee

Welcome!

I had to use mirror extenders on my CB as I could never adjust the mirrors to see around my arms. Cheap mod, doesn't look too bad and makes rear obis much easier!

If the mirrors have a 10mm thread then these should work...

Hi.
I had to majorly faff about with the mirrors and I'm now looking at getting some aftermarket ones. Wouldn't mind some bar type mirrors but it will make filtering a bit more of a nightmare.

Welcome on board dude, to be honest , i find these mirrors just about right for me, but do know where your coming from, my previous bike ( Tuono V4 ) had useless mirrors. I still ride a Bandit mk2 600 during the winter and for commuting.

Nice previous bike list.
I found the mirrors on the test ride some of the best i had used, mind you the ones on my Bandit streetfighter were useless

Congrats! & Welcome for another former Bandito

The mirrors the previous owner put on my Bandit look better than, but are less usable than the stock antennas--might try some bar end mirrors. Might be an option on the GSXS as well.
