Any alternative to OEM mirrors?

Any decent alternative to OEM mirrors? Not interested in bar end type. I need to replace one mirror. OEM mirrors are $75 each. I am open to find something lighter, sleeker, better looking. I see online pairs going for less than $60. Nothing more expensive. Are any of these any good? Nothing worse than getting mirrors that won't hold their position.

I got a pair of Emgo mirrors last year as the ones that were on the bike when I got it were scratched pretty badly. They're really nice, simple and well made. They aren't cheap knock-off garbage. They actually look and feel exactly like the stock mirrors.

I have been looking at the rear fender hugger from Magical racing. $260
These mirrors look pretty sweet too. $290
Thats $550 (ouch). Does anyone have an idea on shipping costs and time from Japan?

I looked and looked and looked and since I really hate the look of mirrors on the bike, but I really want to know what's behind me, and as the stock mirrors were crap for my size (I could only see my shoulders on them) I switched to CBR1 04-07 mirrors.
The stock mirrors are the same as the CBR6RR while the ones I got have silghtly longer stems than the stock ones. Unless you know this difference you wouldn't be able to tell.
EMGO mirrors are good if you set them right and don't fiddle with them often, or they get loose.

Question about Magical mirrors: Can they talk to you?

And now they aren't? I just went on their site because I agree the only thing I don't like cosmetically about this bike is the mirrors and they only have block off plates listed for the RC's. Do you have a link that's still active for the mirrors you bought by any chance??

I took my bike to Mach 1 in Costa mesa, CA for some work to be done. I ended up buying a used pair of oem mirrors in new condition for $40 that they had lying around. Sorry i could not be more help.
