    Suggestions please on how to improve the the view from the stock mirrors.
    After adjusting them several times now I am unable to see whats behind
    other than my shoulders, I have seen bar end mirrors but wondered if anyone
    had tried them or if there is another solution to this problem.

    D600 mirrors have a longer stem and I think the mirror area is slightly larger. They were OK on my D650 but I think they look too big on a 675. Can you nort pull your arms in a bit? Stangely I can see more in my near side mirror than in my off side one. Maybe I'm thinner on my left side?

    Yep I can see more in the n/s than the o/s, rather strange don't you think.
    I cant say my torso is any different from one side to the other I may have
    to check in the mirror tomorrow, thats the wardrobe mirror :lol:

    Same mirror but slightly longer stem, having done it now - would not go back the difference is remarkable and I believe safer, the stock ones are next to useless for my elbows/position. Just my thoughts/work.
     
  8. I've noticed that I seem to be able to see more using my N/S mirror. I just presumed that I had got my ns mirror set right and I have more work to do getting the other one right.

    but now I learn that I'm a freak like the rest of you and and have a thin left side or a fat right one (I wonder if there is anything I'm doing with my right arm that would bulk it up more than the left?!)

    I would tend to agree JDB, from the safety point, as you say the stock ones
    are pretty useless, but from an aesthetic view I'm not so sure, I think Triumph
    realize that they had a problem when their designers created this fantastic
    narrow beast and the smaller stems for the 675 was the way to go to keep
    with the overhaul style of the bike, but not taking from your suggestion its
    a great solution to the problem and I will duly consider this conversion.
    Thanks everyone for ideas and input ;)
