Mirrors

Looking for a set of mirrors for my 2013 road glide. I can only see my shoulders, yes I am a wide body. I have the H.D. mirrors I think they are called split vision and all i can see is me. Any one have any input on something I can try?

I had the same problem and didn't want to add extensions so I bought these
Kuryakyn 1412 Magnum Plus Long Stem Large Flat Mirrors off ebay. Love them plenty wide enough and I like flat mirrors that don't distort the image.

These are cool for wider view. (From another forum build page) They are the slipstream collection mirrors that match the cvo hardware:

I was having the same issue, and then came across a set of split vision mirrors on the cheap and problem solved.

I've got the split vision as well.
Just a word of advice... they look "cool," but don't expand your field of vision like you'd think.
My opinion is that the convex lens should be on the inside, not on the outside.
Your opinion may vary.

This. All I could see with the stock mirrors on the stock bars were my shoulders. Installed a set of Santees 11in apes, kept the stock mirrors and problem solved. (plus quite a few other problems! lol)

I replaced my stock mirrors with these from Kuryakyn. They are the Scythe mirrors. They come in black or chrome versions. Excellent rear view visibility. I have had these mounted on top of the controls as pictured and also under the controls, with good visibility.

I added the Kury extensions that go up and out instead of just up. Riding buddies noticed right away they could see my mirrors that had always been blocked by my shoulders. Big improvement, low cost.
