    I’m looking for a cleaner looking mirror for my 1999 vfr800, any ideas?

    The easiest way is to get the 00-01 mirrors. Like the 98-99 ones, but without the condoms, so they look much better.
    If you feel like making an adapter to account for the different angles, the newer CBR mirrors look awesome.

    Whatever you do, just stay far away from bar end mirrors. Sure, they clean up the front, but they also look like the cheap garbage they are (even the expensive ones. And they don't work. Anyone who says otherwise is wrong.

    Previous owner of mine put on the 00-01 mirrors but they're getting hacked up. I bought some Emgos, but the bases are not the right hole spacing, so I just swapped the mounting brackets.... very economical and just as good IMHO.

    Funny, I just ordered stock mirrors for my 99, removing the 2001 style mirrors.
