Anyone else want different mirrors?

Love the bike. Only mod I have done is removing air filter cover and painting the heat shield black to go better with the body of my black bike.
However I really don't like the style of the mirrors! To me they look like bug antennae or something... I did a little searching and was only able to find chrome mirrors that would fit our bikes. Anyone seen or know anywhere selling replacement mirrors for the cbr yet?

as far as the mirrors go, i find myself adjusting them every time i go out and if i forget to, they are off and i cant see anything behind me. Making adjustments isnt a cake walk either as you know..so yes im lookinkg into mirrors or what can be done to make these easier to deal with..

I wish that they stuck out further and offered a wider view so that I could see both behind me and reasonably to the side of me... As it is now it seems that can only have one or the other and it's a safety compromise..

I am not thrilled with the antennae.

That said, when I am on the bike and they are adjusted I have no problem with them, they work well, and stay put. But walking around the bike, or looking at them, they seem to really stick out. I will just try to stay on the bike more than off.

Work good

I think the stock mirrors work well. They are big and bright and the stalk style allows them to sit out much wider than most other sport bikes which usually just give you a nice view of your arm. They are made from high quality parts and there is zero shake or buzz in the image. The adjustment friction is very firm so they can't change postion unless you move them which I do twice per commute because I tuck on the highway. Functional mirrors are important on a motorcycle and these offer a safe view of what is behind you.

I tend to be a form follows function person. I use my bike for travel not to look at. I can see really well in the stock mirrors. This is one more area where the CBR250R is better than my Ninja which mounts the mirrors a bit narrower.

This has gotten me thinking that maybe I'll for go a set of 'lane splitter' mirrors someday (have to recover from shelling out $$ on the Givi topbox first). They work well on my Triumph and offer a decent rear AND sideview because they are so convex...

I think the mirror's are ok but soon enough when i find some they will be replaced by bar end mirror's. My brother has a 1050 street triple and has just replaced his they look great and are very functionable.
