:agree: and have the same ones.It depends on the look you want as the mirrors and position is the same. The Scythe II has the plainer arm, the original Scythe has the heavier arm that looks more like a scythe handle.
I have the Scythe II and love them. I got it because I thought they looked a little more trim and the curve of the arm better matched the bike. The original Scythe does look a little more wicked.
It's been so long since I had the stock mirrors that I forgot how they worked. The Scythe are shorter in height but wider than the stock mirrors, and they stick out further. After changing from some smaller mirrors I thought these looked like wide angle mirrors, because you can see 3 lanes behind you.way smaller than the stock ones so they take some getting used to....
I believe they are English thread. I went to the hardware store and got longer set screws and used RED loctite on them. Mine have stayed put for 2 years.have scythe II. the mean looking one. By the way how you guys manage to keep it in one place? are the allen screws metric or english?
I ran the set screws in to mark the adapter, removed the adapter, and drilled some small dimples in them. That way the set screws have something to seat in. You can't turn the set screws down tight enough to get a good grip on the adapters without stripping them.have scythe II. the mean looking one.
