Icing on the Cake!

I recently upgraded my rear view mirrors to CRG Lane-Split models. When removing the OEM mirrors, the mirror mounting point is built into the clamp of the clutch and brake levers .... leaving an unsightly hole. There is a solution!

I ordered some new mounting clamp pieces (with no threaded hole) from Motovation (www.motovationusa.com) at a cost of 14.00 each, and it really cleaned up the look.

What do you think of the weighted bar ends? I'm very interested in the weighted bar ends and CRG mirrors.... Those are the only mirrors that look like they work.

I really like the lane splitters ... when I'm going to split lanes, I just fold 'em in .... when I'm in open traffic I fold them back out and they stay perfectly adjusted because they have a "detente" built into them that guides them back to their original position.

I was told when I ordered the mirrors to buy the weighted bar ends, so I did. Supposedly, they dampen more vibration than other bar ends so the mirrors won't buzz out the vision. They also have a nice groove built into them to accomodate the mirror mount. In addition, it they are supposed to dampen bar vibration so your hands don't get too buzzed out, too. I put them on the minute I got the bike, so I really can't tell you the comaparison between OEM bar ends and the Motovation ones 'cause I never rode with the OEM's.

I like 'em a lot.

The bar ends have worked great for reducing the buzzing, I still get a little bit at certain rpms, but it's not that bad. Part of it is just remembering to relax more with my throttle hand. And the mirrors vibrate much less than stock so you can see alot better in the upper rpms, but the trade off is size and that you just can't see as much as the stock mirrors.

I don't have any negatives on the bar ends, some people questioned whether you would be able to feel them when turning because of the extra weight, but I don't think they weigh enough to affect it IMO.
