Hi!

I really like the original mirrors Raider, but the arms are too short and I do not see cars directly behind me going. Where can I buy a long arm to the original mirrors Raider?

Thx!

Yes, I know the auction. Finally, of course, buy the risers, but first I am looking for arms.

Other than extensions, I don't know that you can 'replace' the arm on the OEM mirror

Maybe take it to a machine shop and see what they're able to do with it.  Maybe they can cut it and add a stem piece in the middle.

On the Roadliner/Stratoliner the stem unscrews from the mirror. I haven't tested it on the Raider.

I don't thnk it does, but I can't say I ever tried either.

I run those extensions and it works great.  Doesn't even look half bad.  And I can actually see traffic behind me now!
