It doesn't look to me like mirror extenders are that difficult to make. Here is a picture of mine. I purchased these online. They are Givi so they are stout, but it seems to me that you could make them out of thick aluminum. You just have to match the threads for the mirror, where it normally screws in, so that you can purchase bolts to hold the extenders in. Then get a lockout for the mirror as well.

Aren't the mirror shafts left-hand thread? Making extenders would not be that tricky, but finding LH metric taps could be humorous, at least in the US.

eBay. CB500x R&G mirror extenders. About £11.50. Tried them today and they work perfectly.

You know what else works??... Ride-by-proxy. :-) Maybe you can find a small Asian to ride for you. Honda DID make it for them, you know. :-) (I just had to say that. Couldn't help myself.)

Here's the CB500X mirrors (on right for comparison) I got from a salvage off Eb*y. A real improvement, I can't say if its better than extensions or vice- versa, but definitely better than the stock ones.

They look about the same height but wider? The extensions make the mirrors taller but not wider.

Perhaps the ideal would be both?

How much did they cost?

The CB500X stems bend sharper to horizontal so the mirrors are lower & farther out - not a lot, maybe .75" - 1.0" out more. But they are more square so give better vision to the rear. The tapered outer 1" of the PCX mirrors are only for style & fashion rather than efficient use. The set cost me $35 & free shipping used from a salvage place on eb*y. They are nice, obviously not new, but nice.
