ok, i know this is going off on a tilt here, but i originally subscribed to this post because i was looking for something to help me with my mirror placement. anyways, this is what i have and what i thinking about. i have a 2000 r1 with the stock mirror setup as stock. i have had a 2001 cbr 929 (if you ever get a chance to buy or receive one of these bikes, DONT!!!! just ask me about my law suit against the dealership because of these crappy bikes - ok enough ranting), a 1994 zx-7 which had tons of money dumped into it for maximum performance (but still holds absolutely nothing to the r1), and a 1986 ninja 600r. on my cbr and my kawies, the mirrors were able to be positioned so that i could more or less lay them out straight and fix them so i could see directly behind me. i am unable to do this on my r1. they have no vertical movement. they will just go front to back (and collapse if you go too far). i have tried to work out the kinks, trying to find the spot that works best, but in all honesty i cant see directly behind me unless i move my elbow over or lean over some to see. i am curious if anyone knows of a mirror mod, or an aftermarket mirror that will assist in this.
i know this was long winded, by hey if it fixes my problem, then i am thankful to you all ;-)
