Bye-bye Stock Mirrors

I know people complain about the stock mirrors being buzzy and I got my used SSS with the mirror recall done already but I just don't like the look of them and much prefer bar-end mirrors.
So, while we're getting a ton of rain here in Seattle and while the bike is just sitting in the garage I decided to swap out the mirrors.
Mounting the bar-ends was easy but the turn signals were definitely time consuming. Not hard but getting the right parts, soldering on stock connectors, taking the fairing off, etc, took some time. If anyone is interested in the details I can post those.
Anyway, here's the end result although I have yet to try the mirrors on the street, lol.

I’ve always wondered why someone didn’t make mirror block plates with integrated blinkers, well lo and behold, they do exist!

Maybe also a pic, if possible, with the blinker lights turned off...

I think for Europe they are too close to each other.

More details as requested 🙂
The mirrors were cheapies I got on AliExpress because I actually want to try a couple of different styles and this is a cheap and easy way to experiment.
The turn signals were also from AliExpress - $11 or so items. Can be found on eBay as well. Someone on this forum posted a link a while ago and I got about the same thing. They are not a perfect - not designed specifically for this application - but good enough. I also bought factory turn signal connectors and soldered them on because I didn't want to splice any of the stock wiring. $10 on Amazon and well worth it. Finally, I made brackets to hold the turn signals in place (and wrapped them in electrical tape to prevent scratching the back of the fairing).
One difficulty was taking the fairing off - specifically at the bottom of the V. Being careful and using an automotive trim tool to pull the push pin thing (technical term, lol) out really helped. Also, I should have cut the wires shorter but didn't because I was too conservative.
I can look up and post links to all parts used here.

Hope that helps!

@pb_red : great job! I like it.

I wish I could do the same, but in Italy you have to keep blinkers at minimum distance each other. Unfortunately! So I had to install them on the fairing

Ciao

Blinkers in lever guards would be pretty ideal for us. I've been looking at bar end blinkers, but I'm not sure about their visibility. Lever guard would offer more surface area for the leds.
