I picked up the Kuryakyn Ellipse mirrors and the Universal Cupholder over the weekend. My album in the gallery has pics.

I have to say that I am very pleased with both products so far, especially the mirrors. They stick out to the side another two inches for a better behind view and the shape accents the bike a little better than the rubber framed rectangle that the OEM provides.

I just bought cheep $15 ovals for mine, the square corners on the stock mirrors just don't match the bike, I also didn't want to lower my field of view. So far the chrome on these mirrors has held up fine, even with all the bug splatter down here in Florida.

Amen!!! I sprayed some Rain-X on my windshield the other day and they just wipe right off now.
Should have sprayed some on my sunglasses too B)

Great pics - the mirrors look sharp. Trying to decide what to trade replace my rectangles with. Thx for sharing sk8r

BigSk8r, does the cupholder touch the tank when making a hard left, as in parking lot hard left? I've notice the underside of my bars have nipped my tank on a couple of occasions and have been looking for cup holder, but it looks like it might touch. Thanks.

Not at all. I went with the universal mount that goes on either side on the clutch or handbrake clamps. You can flip the mount to put it higher or lower, but I put it in the max height position and every cup I have tried misses by 1/4 to 1/2 inch. There is also a leather basket that snaps to the chrome ring that can be had for $10. I am thinking about getting it so I can just toss a Gatorade or a soda in there rather than worry with refilling the cup all the time.

On a related note, I actually had a lady pull up next to me at the BMV. She complemented the bike, and said she HAD to have a cup-holder for her husbands bike as well as hers. I let her look at the cup so she could write down Kuryakyn....
