CBR250R mirrors. Suggestions?

Hey yall. So I recently had to replace some stuff on my cbr250r, including the mirrors. I went for the kind with integrated turn signals in them, but when I put them on the bike and rode with them I discovered that they're too short. With the short stems on them I can either see my arms or to the rear of me on the left and right, but I cant see behind me.
Does anyone have any suggestions for mirrors with stems that are as long or longer than OEM, preferably with integrated signals? (Also preferably without breaking the bank)

Thanks for any help I can get.

I think you can get some mirror riser plates. Do you think that would raise them enough?
You could always get blank plates and put bar end mirrors on it.

I dont think riser plates would quite get them far enough out, but I will definitely keep them in mind as a possibility.
I'm a little more partial to your typical front mounted mirrors over bar end mirrors, but I did also think about them.

How well do the mirrors work if you're laying on the tank in full tuck mode?
Because that's the only way to ride a CBR.

i'll go ahead and submit my 2 cents. the cbr250r had the best stock mirrors of any bike i have ever ridden. give the stockers another shot, maybe.

You could always block them off, and use bar ends.

Depends on your taste

What did you end up doing with your mirrors?

I heard you were back up and riding again.
