Default 929/954 mirrors on F4i plus exhaust questions

First off, Hello everyone
I was wondering if someone could help me out of this situation.
i was recently run off the road by some 16-19yr old girl who was texting on her phone while driving (who hasnt nowadays?). Fortunately all that happened to my bike was some scratches on the right fairing and a broken mirror. Myself...well...I wasnt so lucky (see attachments...) ,but anyway
i was wondering if anyone has any insight on putting 929/954 mirrors on an f4i. correct me if im wrong, i believe 929/954 mirrors have the same bolt spacing? what im looking to achieve is a little better view behind me.
any help in this situation or suggestions on how to get a better view using
the stock(<--- STOCK!? Whats That!?! ) mirrror locations.

Also as a side post...
the exhaust was a little dented and lets face it.. its just ugly
i was wondering if someone could point me toward a nice exhaust that isnt too much louder than stock? i love the stubby/bootleg exhausts ,but its probably not possible to find one that isnt louder than stock

thanks for any help
it is much appreciated

funny you should asked, I put the 954 mirrors on the f4i, they are the same exact fitting, though the mirror length is shorter which is an upgrade in my opinion. and you can see the lanes on either side better being closer to center

and a short quiet exhaust is almost and oxymoron. I cut my two-bros in half (at manufacturer length in picture) and its 3-4x louder.... sorry.... I bet your gonna start riding w/ gloves on now to eh? does look painful, maybe a light protective jacket. no need to squid it

Got tapped by a 20 yr old on the cell driving her dads F250.....dot pretty messed up but made a full recovery and sued the hell out of her! Doubt she will be driving anytime soon..... the judge took her license for 5 years. Got what she deserves! We actually just finished settling in court a few weeks ago.

Hope you heal up soon!

thanks for the info RMH3 thats exactly what i was looking for.
and i have a joe rocket hemp jacket and kevlar knuckle gloves...
i just wasnt wearing them
..long story short..

Anger+Motorcycle=Pain!
shouldnt have even left the house lol

as for the exhaust i know its a long shot to find a quiet short exhaust.
i meant that i like the short exhausts but really im looking for ANY exhaust that is just as quiet as stock or a little louder that looks better.
any suggestions?

F4/F4i's are loud bikes, anything aftermarket is going to be loud. My rs-3c sounds great, it would be slightly quieter if I put the DB insert in but it still wouldn't be anything like quiet.
