Ok guys here she is in all her glory lol. But any way my buddy had picked up a ninja 600r that needed so work well since I don't have mirrors on my bike I took his a mocked the up on my faring since that is where his are mounted. I used the holes that hold the windshield. Well come to find out I was able to see really well behind me and my arms was not in the way. Has anyone done there mirrors this way? So pretty much the mirrors will be the way the super sports. Is so can you post pics of how yours looks.

That sounds really cool. I hope you post a picture of it when you're done.

I took a look at the front of my bike today, and thought about how mirrors might fit to the front fairing. Maybe if you drilled a hole all the way through, so the stem of the mirror came through the other side of the fairing, it would be strong enough. Thanks for sharing this great idea. I'll keep it on the backburner.

A big improvement appearance-wise IMO. Nice one.

Hi, are you going to put anything behind fairing to brace & strengthen mirrors to stop vibration transfer from fairing. All bikes I have had in the past with mirrors mounted like the photo had the fairing mount running up behind fairing to also mount mirrors into.
