Got this mirror for my cruiser bike. Since it was made out of plastic it was too flexible so even small bumps would cause it to shake. The constant shaking made it impossible to see with it. I had ordered another mirror made out of metal that was similar just so I could see which one preform better. The second mirror was far better, but cost more at $35. Both have pretty small mirror on them though, but in the end I could see out of one and couldn't see anything with the Acerbis.

Vibrate so much you can't see anything.
Once they wear out they'll fold over from the wind pressure right in the way of your clutch... More of a distraction than a helpful tool.
super flimsy, vibrates so bad its almost useless
I have used mine on dirt bikes (dual sport) for years and find they fill the bill. I can use then when necessary to look back and then fold it down out of the way. True I have to fiddle with it but it's for a dirt bike. It's made of plastic and resist breakage (I have never broken one in more than 20 years of use. I wouldn't have it on a street bike or a 90/10 street/dirt Adventure Bike.
These mirrors are absolutely terrrible. They arent very adjustable and also the plastic is cheap. I stripped the plastic and then after that it was impossible to tighten. Everytime I ride, the mirrors vibrate and shake out of place. Save your money and spend it on better quality mirrors!
Like the other guy said, screws strip out the plastic just trying to get them tight enough to hold everything together. ended up using a fatter screw in the hole i stripped just so i could get it tight enough to keep the mirror upright. come to find out i shouldnt have bothered since once i started the bike the mirror vibrated so much it was totally useless.
Got these in today. Absolute junk. The screws on them thread directly into plastic, not a metal nut like you would expect. Needless to say unless you want them to flop around under their own weight, you will strip them upon install. Im now going to set off on finding a way to fab up some sort of small nut/machine screw assembly to hold them on, which I admit is most like a waste of time because i am almost certain that they will crack off anyway. Trust me, look elsewhere for mirrors.
