There was a lot of discussion about mirrors in a earlier thread

I think any mirror will help with rear visibility,
but the design of the Trophy is such that the mirror arms
will generally obscure part of the OEM mirror,
so it's a trade off depending on the design and style.

You also need to fit them carefully to ensure the screen
does not come into contact with them when fully down,
and with the handlebars fully over to each side.

I went for a cheap set of mirrors ( £15 ) mainly because
the shape, style and colour looked good on my bike,
and if the arms obscured the view through the OEM mirrors,
they were cheap enough to remove and forget about,
which I couldn't have done with more expensive Triumph mirrors.

The ideal situation would be to find a dealer
willing to let you try before you buy !

I just discovered that both stock mirrors from my Suzuki DR200SE fit fine on my TTSE. But I still would prefer larger mirrors up higher and wider, but these work much better than the TTSE stock mirrors.
