I think the quality of the stock mirrors on the Svartpilen is a disgrace. They are functional but of such a cheap quality that they misfit with the rest of the bike. If you re-adjust them once the bolts are damaged ugly as the steel is soft as s**t.
So I bought the Husqvarna accessory mirror set. They are of good metal quality etc. but once placed you cannot see a thing….they are way too short…… Who came up with this and did he/she actually fit them on the bike at one point? Who checked this?
Next step…I ordered SW-MOTECH mirror extenders at http://www.louis.de and now it is finally o.k. and I have good quality mirror that function and look good.
The part number is Louis Best.Nr.: 10029012 = SW-MOTECHSVL.00.504.101…..sets you back another 50 Euro.June 7, 2019 at 1:57 am #5352
I agree that the stock mirrors are terrible – they’re the exact same found on Husqvarna’s trail bikes.
Judging from your photos, however, it looks like without the extenders the mirrors will have about the same visibility as the stock stems. Was that your experience?
I’m a new Svartpilen owner and I’m trying to pick a set of mirrors – it’s really hard to visualise what husqvarna’s accessories will look like as they don’t provide sample pics.
I think the svart’s handlebars are just too long already for bar-ends. It’d make filtering and parking much more difficult (I’m a city commuter).June 7, 2019 at 2:41 am #5354rlarueParticipant
Burnzoire, I bought the Husky brand bar ends and really like them. I’m a city commuter as well and they really don’t add that much width to the bike. They offer great viewpoints and hardly vibe at all.June 7, 2019 at 3:24 am #5356
Looks nice for the vitpilen’s lower clip-ons, but not so sure about them on the svartpilen. They just seem a little wide. Thanks for sharing that pic!June 7, 2019 at 4:29 am #5357
Besides the official accessories, these mirrors are on my list. They are super expensive though:

Sorry for the badly aimed picture, I wasn’t photographing the mirrorsJune 14, 2019 at 1:41 pm #5504
I find it on alie low price and very good quality, no vibes.June 17, 2019 at 1:48 am #5538kaizerosParticipant
Where you get it?June 17, 2019 at 4:52 am #5541June 18, 2019 at 12:31 pm #5568MidnaiteParticipant
they are basically the same has mine, only the mirrors shape changes.
I had to use the harware from previous mirrors to fit the internal size, the ruber ring was too big.
are you able to see anything in this position?

Yes I see very well especially that I have shoulders and elbows wide so it’s better in this position.

I just found this on Rizona’s website… different look but I don’t mind it:
Thoughts? I’d just settled on the round husky CNC stem mirrors but this may be a bit more original at least.
