These mirrors have adjustable pivots at the mirror ball with a set screw.
The stalks are adjustable but have a relatively low possibility of raising their heights.
Their angular shape does limit visibility somewhat; some flip the mirrors over to get a little more angular visibility.
These mirrors have a fixed stalk that rises higher but is less adjustable.
The mirror shape is more curved and generous, but with limited positioning can be a problem for some.
The mirror mounting for 2011+ models is in the Yamaha family (left and right threaded opposite) so third-party options are not hard to find.
  • Bar-end mirrors can be fitted easily, as one alternative.
    For early Gen2 models, this requires cutting holes in the grips at the bar ends.
    A sharp knife or single-edged razorblade works well for this.

I'm very happy with this 2nd set of blind spot mirrors. (The first set were chrome and I didn't like where I put them.) When I'm traveling straight and upright, the main mirrors are set so I can see just behind to the sides, slightly beyond my peripheral vision. The spot mirrors are tilted to see directly behind, without my elbows being in the way.
