I agree, I think the positioning and added sculpture of them does look 'more aggressive'.

Now you got me thinking of taking my OEM, and seeing how they look reversed on the opposite sides. Damn it. Another experiment.
huh?, the mirror would be facing the front of the bike
No, they would not.

They would be turned to face rearward!
If that’s even possible to make them turn all the way around they are going to look exactly like they do now.

You have me Thinkjng I’m crazy Well I know I’m crazy but I can’t picture at all how swapping the mirror from one side to the other is going to change anything in how they sit.
Like Snakes, it would lower them a little. The blinker'd be on top, and the aesthetics would look poor, but Snakes got me thinking of lowering them (not in the end reversing my pair). That'd be an easy mock up as an initial look see for height. A proper pair, correct side orientation would be the only way to go if I found I like the height change. It's not a 'serious' interest right now. I'm always thinking of experiments.

Ahh you have not mentioned upside down. Now it makes more sense but I still don’t think it’s possible

It’s a mod that works well on some bikes.
Some mirrors angle up or down on their mounts,
Flipping them to the other side reverses that angle.

I think the factory ones look nicer. The wind screen and upper half of the fairing is just to high to give it a sleek look.

Hey David, in the end, you were right. Even though you can swap the OEM mirrors around and the mounts will 'mount', the mirrors will not articulate around enough to be useful.

I always been a big fan of the H2 mirrors over ours.
Snakes, so you've had these for a little time now. What are your thoughts on height, utility, etc?

Havent been able to ride with them as there is about 2 ft of snow and -27*C temps outside. Sitting on the bike the mirrors are obviously alot lower. The glass itself is maxed out on adjustment to be able to see behind me. Instead of seeing more of your shoulders, you see your wrists and whats behind you.
