    too late to ask them to add extra bend for you before sending??

    here we just have a law that plate should be easily seen from horizontal (police car) and 45deg above bike (speed camera )

    Mustard Bikes tail tidy on a 2018 Honda CB1000R

    Got it in middle of the week. Weather is pretty crappy so this was a good time to get it done. Install was challenging but worth it. Watch the video lots and take your time.

    Really wish that had included an exploded drawing showing the overall assembly more clearly.

    Very pleased with the results.

    Yep was easy, just a little bend about 6-7°
    The mirrors are a bit to small it's hard to see a lot in there.... but looking good and a good quality made...

    here some pic's:

    I have those same (or similar enough) mirrors on my CB1000F. I hate them. Hate them. They are crap. The won't stay in a fixed location. Did I mention I hate them.Mirrors down by my hands are terrible unless the bars are at eye level. IMHO.

    Also I have the mirrors (not the stalks) flipped 180 degrees in the vain hope that I will see better behind me.

    The arm moves or the mirror rotates on its ball fitting?
    Mine are rock solid.. except for higher rpm vibration... Need to make heavier bar ends..

    I have mine pointing out, which helps, but higher in the eyeline would be good.. but then you'd need long mounting arms which would look weird 🙂

    Still better than stock, which were only good gor looking at arms..
