The set I'm using is the black EMGO ones from this list:

http://www.bevelheaven.com/stuff-for-sale-mirror.htm

I already bought 'em cause... fuck, $15 a piece. If they suck then I'll figure out a use for 'em.

Questions:
Anyone used these mirrors, or any EMGO products?
Anyone dealt with Bevel Heaven before?
How much of a bitch is it going to be to use the expanding sleeve thing on my Hayabusa?

Yeah. I know they're ugly. But they cheap, and cheap is pretty.

Maybe I'll even be able to make lane changes without dislocating my spine.

thats always a plus.

im thinking about installing a rear view camera as opposed to a mirror.

My bike shop is building a gixxer 1k streetfighter and he's planning on putting on a rear view camera. He's done it to other bikes and likes it.

I wonder if it can be legally considered a mirror?

I like those mirrors. Like Adam said, you can probably actually use them. I know a few ppl that have 3rd eye mirrors(from bicycles) and tell me they have a good view, but I just don't see how. Plus, I lane split alot and need my space.

Emgo's are cheap, but cheap is cheap. lol. We sell a lot of them with the warning, "You're paying $15 bucks, expect a $15 mirror".

haelo i havent yet tried to go thru inspection with this (i will this spring tho). i have heard stories from people with this setup and they said the cops were so impressed by it the just forgot why they pulled em over, and asked em to slow down. haha.

my biggest concern is blind spots. hopefully its not too bad.


Endo: +1 they dont say 'you get what you pay for' for no reason do they?

Enrico: im with you, but i guess i dont really even use mirrors when im splittin lanes... maybe quick glances to see if theres any flashing lights.

That's what I am using and there fine for normal travel but for splitting lanes there just not enough

from what i can tell those mirrors are junk and your better off not running em...but if thats what you want.

so is there another maker of them or somthing?? the ones in LP look the same as every other i've ever seen.

Okay, these Emgo mirrors are useless to see out of. They have this weird double vision thing going on and they're impossible to aim for some reason.

But they keep me legal and look kinda neat (until they break off on some fucks door)
