Help, V Strom mirrors

I have a 2004 650 V Strom. I need to purchase a set of mirrors for her. OEM are $75. each. Too much $$$.
I bet that there is some after market mirrors that would work nicely, at least as good as OEM if not better.
Help
Thanks, Mike

Everyone seems to like the Aprilia mirrors.

I put KTM mirrors on mine... but that was a couple/few years ago and I can't remember what I paid for the set or point you to a link.

I think they were about $80 for the set, plus I had to buy some $5 adapters.

I have the aprillia mirrors on mine.... I ordered them through the local shop. I think they were like 30 bucks a peice. I also got some cheap looking KTM mirrors not the duke ones pictured the thread. I think they were from the LC4 adventure... bought from E-Bay...

The Aprilia mirrors are the best 32 bucks I ever spent.

Fat Elbows

This is the route I chose as I have fat elbows and need a little extra width to get around them, work great and no vibration issues.

Question I have some cheap Emgos

that are short and are fatter on the inside, narrow on the outside, they came on the bike, they are putrid. My first wee was killed by a cage and I rather liked the stock mirrors. I am going to be looking into mirrors before long, seems like you kind of get what you pay for. There is a dealer I frequent that carries Aprillia, I am going to look into that, good luck. Why the P/O took the stockers off is a mystery to me......

Because aftermarket mirrors like the ones from Aprilia can reduce buffeting. They definitely helped me.
