Just fitted these new KiWAV mirrors. Definitely good quality for $160 AUD (about $110 USD). Absolute improvement on original set which were rusting; been polishing them for 12 years, chrome finally wearing off. Not completely in love with these mirrors yet; time will tell. Just didn't want to go wider with bar end mirrors.These are narrower and sit a bit lower than the originals. If I fitted from under the base with other fittings I could get them down about 1cm or so, but, from my head height they seem OK. I'll adjust as I get use to them. Cheers Charles

I'm not a fan of bar ends either. The chrome originals are awful as well, you were lucky to get twelve years out of them!😂

I'm quite happy with the later black 'Aprilia' mirrors mind.

I purchased a new set of those as well (a few months ago) but, they came out too far each side. My bars end-to-end are 80cm. A little narrower I think than the bigger Grisos, so they just looked a bit strange. I've still got them in bubble-rap, so might use them if I grow tired of these. Cheers.

The 850's and 1100's actually have wider stock bars than the 1200's. No logic to it.
