Default Would a 98 set of mirrors fit a 93 model?

I just broke my original 93 right mirror... stupid fall while getting of the bike, i'm still getting used to the weight.

While searching a replacement i founf some 98 katana mirrors that look awesome but i don't know if they'll fit.

Any one can give an opinion about this??

Cheers

if you still have the mounts in tact and the screws i would say buy them mirrors and then if they dont fit drill new holes in the base of the mirror and make em fit

Anything is possible but, direct.... no. Better mirror is a 2000ís GSXR mirror. Better view and looks.

ive had a good number of bikes and have rode hundreds of them, the new gen kat mirrors are hands down the absolute best! i love them, they are sturdy as hell, the perfect size, and i love the boots that keep water off the screws!

Depends on the size of the rider. (+ They won't fit a pre...)
Stock setup on my post 600, I thought they sucked. They were super solid and didn't vibrate, which was great, but because of my height, the placement/view was horrible. Switched to 750 bars (higher) and got 1" blocks under the mirrors, and I could see decently well, but still ~1/3 of the mirror was filled with elbow.
