Hey ya'll!

I'm a brand new rider. I just got my endorsement last month and last weekend I brought home a Yamaha V Star 250. I'm a pure beginner - I've wanted to ride since I was a kid but I'd only ridden at ATV. Now I've got a bike, bought my gear and I've been out riding twice now.

The first thing I realized is that the stock mirrors on this bike don't work for me. My arms are in the way and I can't see behind me unless I lean over. I've adjusted the heck out of them but... no luck.

Does anyone have advice on good replacement mirrors that extend out a bit further? And to that - I am not really sure where to shop for motorcycle parts like this. I see a bunch of websites in my google searches, but what are some of the best ones to use, as far as reliability, price, well-packaged shipping etc...?

Thanks in advance :)

Try loosing the base and move the arms forward. Retighten and then adjust the mirrors. You might have to do it a couple of times to get the view past your shoulder.
