It was such a long time ago....

I think I got mine from Brancato engineering....

They are plug ugly things - like club foot boots for mirrors.
I've had them for a couple of years and I'm seriously thinking of taking a band saw to them and cutting them so they taper off to the rear. This won't affect their extension properties but will hopefully make them slightly more aesthetically pleasing.

How are you going to taper them Derek? mine are Brancato and are hollow inside with reinforcing struts, are yours from another source?

The Brancato extensions work OK but are ugly. I have fitted VFR 750 (CBR 600) pattern mirrors - needs an extra screw hole in the fairing but they work well.

Phil
Mine are from Brancato too and similarly constructed but if I cut the rear of them, i.e. the part which abuts against the fairing, then the external apearance will be un-affected.
