GSXS750 Mirrors

Hi All,

New to the forum and ownership of a Suzuki. I have searched the forum and Google, but can't seem to make sense of what I'm looking for.

Basically the standard mirrors that come with the GSXS I'm finding a bit annoying - I can't always see past my body and stick out/up to high for my liking. I am wondering if people could point me in the right direction of under-bar mirrors (unsure if that's the correct terminlology)? Anyone have them? Are they hard to install?

Any advice would be fantastic.

Cheers,
Bizzy

Do you mean "bar-end"mirrors? If so, CRG Arrows are great, not cheap. You can find on Ebay many Chinese cheaper versions

I've had 2 sets of the CRG Arrow knockoffs. They fail at the mirror ball joint if you rotate them too much, the ball joint loosens/unglues itself off the shaft. Maybe you're supposed to loosen the screws first? But that would make repositioning on the fly a bit of a pain so I don't know. They also vibrate above 7k and they dont have enough glove clearance to fold them inward.

Now I got the Rizoma Reverse Retro knockoffs by Kemimoto which I like a lot better. They don't look as good and cost more ($35 vs $20) but I like everything else about it much better. Ball joint design is different, same visibility as Arrow, tinting to reduce glare, rock solid, and plenty of glove clearance to fold them inward.

Thanks for the reply - they are similar to what I'm looking for, but I saw a GSXS a few weeks ago that had the mirrors come back in under the grips? I'm assuming they must be a type of Bar Ends?

Yes, most of the bar-end mirrors can be mounted above OR below the grips, depending on your preference. Just remember, you get what you pay for!

Thanks - with that in mind - do people have recommendations? The Arrows don't appear to be able to be mounted under, do people have recommendations for one's that can be?

I believe the CRG Arrows only have 2 positions, both folding outward. The CRG Arrow knockoffs I had didn't have the same limitation, but you don't really get enough glove clearance folding them inward (top or bottom mounted).

The Reverse Retro type work fine for folding them inward in the top mounted orientation. Issue with mounting them in the bottom orientation is that, depending on your handlebar/bar end/mirror rotation, the longer mirrors might hit the tank at full lock. At least, that's the case for my lower aftermarket handlebar. Probably will be fine with the stock handlebar though.

Edit: This is for the 1000. Not sure about the 750.

CRG hindsight lanesplitters are awesome! Good fit, quality product, work as expected, at least with my rizoma bars. Can be rotated for location to bars,up, down, whatever you want. I run my mirrors up and rotated about 45 degrees forward.

These are good too.

They fit with stock bar-ends perfectly, so no need for adapters.

Can be had here.
