just remove the allen from the weights and use it or a longer one to mount the mirrors.
i mounted my mirrors outside the weights because i wanted the weights to help reduce the vibrations.

The mirrors on my 2010 Bullet Deluxe a so short as to be useless.
NField gear offers extensions but say they will only fit the c5.

Anyone know if this is true?

If so does anyone have a solution?

It is very freaky not being able to see behind me and dangerous too.

TIA

Mine is an E5 which is similar to yours.
Mirrors are just fine for riding in shirt; so not so much for us, with our padded vests.

Bar end mirrors are the top solution of course, but they wouldn't work for me. I can't afford another nanometer more in width.

What did work for me was also economical. Pushing the mirror stem more forward resulted in a good rear view on the left. Same trick didn't make perfect to the right, then... does right needs correction? ;)
(we drive on the right side).

whether this trick works for you or not do check out Hitchcocksmotorcycles.com, handlebar/fixings part 92569 is a set of extensions that will fit our Electra's. Good news, these are adjustable!
