Better mirros for F4 1000

Let's face the fact. The original mirrors are pure *hit what comes to traffic security. It is impossible to see the background easily.

Is there any better mirros for F4? Red color mirros with blinkers - and with good design, of course.

I don't know any sport bikes that you can see behind worth a shit.
You could use bar ends but they inhibit your lane splitting.

I still wonder why they haven't invented a crash helmet with rear view cameras projecting inside the visor what is going on behind you... would be safer, would be more aerodynamic, would be cheaper in case of crash and would stop vibrating at whatever rpm...

My R6 has great mirrors on it. Ugly as sin but you can see really well.

Guess it's been a while since I was on an R6. I remember on my R1 I always had to move my arm to look behind.

Yeah. But then again. Mirrors are an afterthought for sport bikes. You have to remove them for the track anyway.

Although I have to admit it's bloody terrifying riding without them. Found that out while working out the bugs in my suspension on my track bike.

The mirrors on my 2002 are terrible as well and I bought some round stick on wide view mirrors to go on the ends for more visibility. Never put them on but perhaps that might be an option to widen the view behind you if you don't want to replace the mirrors. I also noticed on my 2002 that you can use the "flexy bendy" portion of the mirror and perhaps wedge something under that to push them out slightly more. I have just learned to accept the bad view from behind and ride at a pace where things behind me are not important. I guess I have learned the first rule of Italian driving.

Kind of a side note, on my F4 the mirror on the left gives a pretty clear image but the right hand one vibrates quite a bit. They both seem to be attached just the same, can't quite figure it out.
