I'm over this so last time:

I can't believe some of you are moving your levers to awkward positions just to adjust the mirrors. The vertical adjustment is at the mirror itself, read my old post again carefully and try it.

I ride Vespas, so awkward lever positions (clutch lever) is pretty normal to me. As long as it's not pointing at me, I can use it. But thanks for clearing it up. For some reason in that thread I was led to believe that you did have to loosen the levers to adjust the forward/backward mirror stalk.

Apparently that's not true, so I'll shut up.

Scrambler mirrors

I just got a Scrambler and find the inability to see behind me a hazard. I found a part from SWMotech on Twisted Throttle that raises them.

Part # SVL.00.505.101 (or 504 depending on the thread)

JBS...., thanks to your recent posting, I found this thread & link for making vertical adjusts to the mirror. I have the same rear view issue. I just completed the adjustments (about 20 mins.) per Doc59's instructions & will test the results tomorrow for effectiveness.

Coincidentally, minutes before reading this post, I was speaking to Twisted Throttle about details for the R&G Mirror Risers, R&G Mirror Risers for Ducati Hypermotard 821 '13-'15, Hyperstrada 821 '13-'15, Yamaha B1100 Bulldog '02-'05, XJ6 '09-'11 & FZ-09 '14-'16 - TwistedThrottle.com. It elevates the mirror by almost 2".

If you have to go forward with installing an adapter like the SWMotech, or other item, please post your results.

I was having the same issue, not able to see directly behind me. No adjustment of the mirrors ma a difference.
I looked at these, but they seemed pretty pricey for what they are.

I found this and this on ebay. $26 USD, ten minutes to install and adjust them. Took them out for a test ride today along with my new comfort seat). Great visibility behind me. Best money that I've spent on the bike so far.

The mirrors have up/down travel without moving the levers. It's takes a little force the first time, it will feel like you're going to break something. There must be some factory paint or something making a temporary "seal". I'll take some video tomorrow morning.

Two step process to allow for vertical travel in the mirror:

1. Adjust general vertical placement using nut on stem.

2. Pop off front cover of mirror to access tension spring for ball and socket joint. Loosen to desired resistance.

Fair warning, I haven't had any coffee yet so I call a nut a bolt and the clutch lever a shift lever. There might be a few unfinished sentences and ramblin at the end...

Skulls, what's the difference between the two eBay links provided? Were you trying to link another part? I'm interested in purchasing these, but just want to make sure I get the right stuff.

The right hand mirror is reverse threaded, the left hand mirror is standard. It's not clear from my reading if all Scramblers are that way, or just some. But mine is, so I needed on of each.

For anyone else who's wondering, the mirror extenders I ordered don't really work for my Icon. First, the extenders swivel on the mounting posts even with the hex bolt fully tightened. I can't imagine this will go over well on bumpy roads and at freeway speeds. Second, the right side mirror post is very close to the housing for the throttle/brake. This makes it impossible to install the extender without making further adjustments I suspect.
