Would it look wierd painting the back cover of the mirrors white or should I leave it black? The whole bike is being painted white. What do u guys think

Dunno, it's up to you. Ducati and MV do it from the factory, and there are a few companies that sell aftermarket mirrors that are painted.

I say painting them white will attract the eye towards them, and who wants to highlight mirrors? Leave them black.

By far the coolest thing I have seen is the little silver headlight surrounds painted white. I can't find the pic of the guy who did that.
ida know.. i just keep thinking about cheap cars with that black abs molding strip and mirrors, sometimes even bumper covers. ugly. i would say on an ALL-WHITE bike, abs black mirrors would look ridculous imho. like really hard to not notice.....try to find some pics of some similar bikes-might help you decide.

I totally agree.....makes sense...it would actually make it look cheaper, differnt with cars.....you don't want to highlight mirrors
