Just installed these, are they too big? Not sure how I feel about them. What are your thoughts guys ?

The mirrors?  They look fine from this angle.  Can you see behind you better than the OEM's?  If they bother you, then swap them out with something you like better.  Nothing worse than something that nags at you all the time. Ok, there's lots of things worse - like being on fire for instance.

If it's something else you're talking about, apparently it's fine because I don't notice anything that looks off at all.

And I do like that blue.

Yeah, the mirrors, completely forgot to say what "these" was referring to haha. From the "typical" bar-end mirrors I've seen, these are definitely on a bigger scale, hence my concern. I like them though.

I can see behind me, not as good as stock though.

I'm confused.... seeing that the stock ones suck, why did you put those on your FZ?

I use the stock ones with extenders and blind-spot mirrors and mine work great!

If you flip the mirrors outward they'll work a lot better. Though they might not look as "cool".

Because I love the look of bar-end mirrors. I can still see behind me just fine, but that extender is not a bad idea at all !

Yeah.. they look completely hideous like that due to their size.IMG_20190704_121513.thumb.jpg.42ac2ed6d833c291f864c476afd44777.jpg

They may look different but they make sense that way if you think about it, they extend out like they should so you can see around your arm and see behind and to the side better. I see people with those flipped upside down (hanging underneath the grip) where their arm has to be blocking their view somewhat but they won't change that either because they're worried about it not looking as cool. Not saying you're one of them because you got new mirrors to improve your visibility. Question: are they convex mirrors or standard glass because if they're not convex you should get some. They would make a huge improvement as to what you can see around you. GL!

@rylark, which mirrors are those?  I am considering bar end mirrors for my bike, but also think those ones may be just a bit too large.

Personally I don't think that they are too big, not bigger than stock to my eye.  I would mount then to give you the best view, not per how they look.  The way I figure is that I'm riding the thing and I care about what I can see (in the mirrors) more than what the bike looks like when I'm not on it.  Personally I don't think many people give two cents worth of their time admiring or disliking the bike save for other moto enthusiasts.
