Why waste time with mirror extenders---- try mirrors for CB750 early 69-70 for example--Dennis Kirk is good source, they worked on my TU250, Honda Nighthawk 750, Burgman 400 and Silverwing 600---cheap, not complicated great simple view to rear---big miles with them,including Alaska, Canada to NB=no trouble.

John, I am sure those CB750 ones are a good option too, but do they just screw in to the stock mirror base of the TU? The extenders cost like $20 and take 5 minutes to install, and the view is night and day.... anybody still using the stock view don't know what they are missing.. clear full 180+ degree rear view. I like the idea of the round Honda ones, very cool looking for sure.

FWIW, there are a couple of different metric size mirror holes used on Japanese bikes and some are left-hand thread too so they tend to self tighten in the wind.
Fortunately it sounds like Honda are the same a Suzuki so at least we dont have to fight that.

I use the Parts Unlimited round mirrors with the longer stems. One of the members of this forum has posted a photo of them on the bike at the bottom of this thread.

One of the nice things about them is that (on mine, at least) their screw threads are compatible with the threads on the OEM mirrors. So you could, if you wanted to, buy the round ones but then switch back to the square look by mounting your original mirrors on the stems.

Installed the mirror extenders. TKU! Inexpensive as earlier noted, and they really do wonders on my view to the rear. I too wonder why Suzuki didn't make the mirror stems longer to begin with.

Same here, world of difference! Now if they just had shock absorbers so they wouldnt vibrate so much :)
