    Now there's another reason I miss the 80's and early 90's EVERYBODY messed with theyre bikes to a huge degree, few people seem to play these days, and no more 2 strokes either (well very few anyway)

    There are several styles of bar-end mirrors that might look good on there and not stick out so much and ruin the lines ?

    I am sure I have even seen ones that wrap back around the hands a bit.

    Some nice ones in here too - http://www.vcustoms.co.uk/motorcycle...s_272_601.html

    You seen the price of them cheapest are 90.00 each. I fitted a pair of OEM bar end mirrors off a Triumph speed triple to my hybrid & they are really good quality but I don't think they would suit the ape so I went for a pair of RS125 mirrors in the end which are about two inches longer than standard RSV ones, I can see behind now

    Ah yep, thought so. I've got a set of shutguns on my bike but they're the SP Titanium cans. I think they look a bit long, but I can't help but feel it is a bit of a shame to go cutting them up. Might try to find a cheap set of second hand arrows somewhere... Thanks Nick!
