Default Which mirrors? This one or this one?

Shopping for a set of integrated mirrors. I heard the eBay ones I'm looking for shake quite a bit, but I plan to tighten the bolts and putting in some rubber washers to dampen the vibration.

My question is, I've found two different kinds of mirrors on eBay. Does anyone know the difference between the two (which is better)?

or

They have different looking bases. One of them have these little ridges and the other does not. I'm sure they are from the same manufacturer - my guess is one set is an older version of the other. Question is, which is which?

I don't see how the second one adjusts at the base so I would go with the first one. That said the second looks the same but with a cover over the base. Let us know what you decide and how they work out for you!

Look pretty similar to me as well. I'm sure they'll both fit, go with the second one. Cheaper.

I've been meaning to get these mirrors too but in the same boat as you. I'm leaning toward the ones without the ridges, but overall I don't know which is better either.

I wouldn't get them. I had a pair and one broke at the base first ride out. Just letting you know. They have plastic parts.

But I had some aftermarket ones on Isabelle for a while and went back to cheap OEM knockoffs that I like very much.
