Not really. They don't stick out that much further and the fairing is wide enough to be pretty well even with the outer edge of the mirror head. I had pretty much already determined that most of my buffeting is because of the vacuum created by the large "hole" I punch through the air.
I am going to put on a Madstad windshield to hopefully take care of that and maybe Sanchos wings.

I bought the split vision mirrors for my ultra and didn't really like where the blind spots were. They didn't give me the field of view I was expecting. I actually flipped the sides and mounted them upside down. That helped a little, but the words (object in mirror...) were upside down and that got on my nerves. I went and bought the regular fairing mount mirrors and I like them a lot better. I actually mounted them a little higher than the instructions say.

Im 5'7" and had the same problem. Tried the HD mirror extensions and got the mirrors where I can see behind perfect. A little pricey for what they are but were cheaper than mirrors. After 2 1/2 years they are starting to rust a little bit.

Here ya go
91846-03B mirror right long
91848-03B mirror left long

These are the ones I have. The actual stem is longer, between the bend that goes down through the mount point and the back [forward side] of the mirror head itself.
They move the heads OUTWARD, not UP like the extensions do.
$39.95 each

i am about 6'2 broad shoulders, stock mirrors were useless. i rode a street glide with the fairing mount mirrors and they are the same width, useless. i have a set of Long stem stockers, Right 91846-03B and Left 91848-03B. took less then 5 minutes to install and they fit good. look stock but gives you the extra width needed.

My question (which is a longshot) is: Does anybody roughly my height -- 5'7" have these mirrors? If so, do they block your view at all?

I know I can find a bike with them and sit on them, but it just isn't the same standing still compared to riding and having the wind blowing my leather jacket out a little bit.
I had the same problem. Kuryakyn makes an extention for the stock mirrors that make them stick out a couple more inches. It worked great for me. Mirror Stem Extenders | Handlebar Controls | Kryakyn

I have noticed no additional wind buffeting with speeds up to 85mph.
I have the HD mirror extenders and they answered all my vision problems.

I don't press one for English!

Hmmmm....not I'm not sure if I should get the fairing mounted mirrors or the mirror extenders. I'm going to find a bike today that has fairing mounted mirrors to see how they work for me. There is a Street Glide at my dealer that has them. The Street Glide's seat height is an inch lower than the Electra Glide, except that I had my Electra Glide lowered by 1 inch, so I think (hopefully) it should be similar.
