    Buy cheap Chinese bar end mirrors on Amazon so you won't care banging and scuffing them here and there, and they work OK. You just need to wrap a few layers of plastic film around mounting bushings to fit them into the bar tube.

    i use CRG 2" Blindsight mirrors. Love them. One think i did do that works for me is sticking a 2" convex mirror over the flat mirrors themselves. Allows me to have a larger field of view. You really cant even tell there is a mirror stuck over the existing mirrors either.

    Beautiful bike you got there. Good info on the stick-ons. Have to try em.

    Matter of opinion but I feel like bar end mirrors are more at home on the Lightnings, 1125CR and other Naked "Standards"/cafe racers than they are on bikes with fairings and track-day aspirations. When I'm tucked in behind my Firebolts windscreen on the highway, I appreciate the large stock mirrors and their placement. The bar-ends on my Blast worked well when you were sitting upright.

    Not even sure it's possible, but can you lean the bike far enough in a turn to hit the bar ends?22008135_10154987718471762_4533681051209271032_n.jpg

    First pic!! I really like that handlebar and gauge combo. Think that would work for 05xb9s? If so, can you direct a guy to where these can be acquired?
