Saw this on another site. Might be handy on a PCX for all of us wide bodies.

I'm a "wide body" and I find the stock PCX mirrors "OK" (not great, not bad). Took me a while to get them where I needed them, but after that they do the job if I tuck my elbows in when needed. I think things like this would just be a PITA to put on each time. For the most part, the far more important thing is doing a lifesaver check by swivelling my head before changing lanes to eliminate blind spots.

I bought the mirror extenders when I ordered my tall Givi windshield. My tall windshield is for the 2013 model year. I am not sure if they are still producing them, or if they would fit the newer ones. I suspect that they fit all models. I have also heard on this forum that several members put mirrors on from a Honda motorcycle because they had a longer stem than what came on the PCX.

i'm not sure if the mirrors attached to the front panel offers better angle. Saw a lot of these being used in Thailand.

Stock mirror fine for me though.

Where to buy those mirrors? I have to push my bike through narrow gate. Handlebars go through Ok but mirrors are too wide and do come back to the same position when you fold them. I was thinking about some cbr mirrors mounted on same bolts as windscreen

With the stock mirrors I find that I can actually see what is directly behind me better with the right mirror (facing forward) and vehicles that may attempt to pass me appear more readily in my left mirror.

If I was riding in the U.K. it would probably be the opposite.

Lane positioning plays a role as well. I can live with the stock mirrors but the wrist mirrors do look like a good option. 8)

They'd be good for touching up make-up on the fly..
