Any of the aftermarket ones on Ebay, pretty much same quality no matter which you choose.

Yep. I ended up buying replacements from Cycle Gear- they were about 30 a pop, but all the ebay ones ended up being that price too with shipping. Weirdly, I can't find a pic on their website, but I've seen them at both the local stores. Just read the packaging carefully, it's a little confusing which one is L vs R the way they're labeled.

heard cheaply made mirrors vibrate so much you cant see anything with em.
not too sure if this is true or not. just something to keep in mind.

They won't vibrate. Im on my second set of replacement mirrors (Dropped, been down) and never have had an issue. Just make sure that they fastened down tightly to the cowl and you're good. Plus they're MUCH cheaper than OEM.

1st pair off of ebay
2nd set from Dennis Kirk because its local and I didn't have to wait or pay for shipping. They both had different manufacturers but both attached the same and were the same quality. Only reason why i replaced the second time was because they had ugly rash on em, didn't even break when it went down, just folded back towards the cowl.

I'm thinking ebay. The EMGO's are $27 each but the ebay ones are $35 for both.
