So, I've got this SLUK driver screen. But, I'd like to have a functional mirror 'cause I'm funny that way. The screen hangs lower that a standard mirror bracket sticks out. It's a P200E without the new-fangled headset mounted screw in types.

Hi

You maybe better contacting Sluk directly and see what they suggest,

I think the easiest way is through their Facebook page.

Good luck, I hope this helps somewhat.

No luck with SLUK. They did not have any suggestions. However, I am up for any novel ideas that anyone else may have. Mainly, I'm looking for something actually functional but that does not detract from the aesthetic of the screen.

I'd go leg shield mount for styling and ease in this case

Something I have considered. I do want black and rectangular. Yet to find just the right one.

You could always get one of these, ouch 🤕
Ouch indeed! IF, you can find one, expect some major heft from the wallet. I've seen similar UTAH mirrors on ebay. Usually white or red. None black. Though I've been told, those give you a fantastic view of your armpits. Not much else.

black for sure given the look of the bike

rectangular probably 1st choice but I don't see many black ones anyway, might have to compromise on that

You might be able to mount some mirrors upside down under the bars using brackets in the mounting points under the headset and get some plugs to cap the mirror holes on top. Don't know if it would look silly but worth a shot maybe.

I have that style of mirror on my Moto Guzzi. Mine are made by Napoleon in Japan and are great quality. An added bonus with them is you can fold them out of the way to help with tight lane filtering. Napoleon make a rectangular version too.

I've been commuting to work this past summer on the scoots and have learned to love my mirrors. One thing I've noticed especially going fast on the freeway is having the mirrors up high and already in sight.

I don't have a disk but, I like the concept. Makes me wonder if I couldn't devise a similar arrangement.
