1078 Barend options (w/ mirrors)

Hi guys-
I have settled on CRG arrow mirrors. I am looking for a bar end solution that will be able to house the mirrors. I have seen the Motovation option but they seem a bit bulky.

Any other options out there that would work for the 1078?

this is the only other option I have seen ( I contacted the member).

I did some research on the forum and google and Motovation bar ends and Oberon with integrated signals were the few set ups I was able to find.

I may try to just order CRG adaptors and see how they look.

Sorry ... bike went in for service and I forgot to take photos. It does however look like barend adapters (likely CRG) are what the previous owner used.. They look the same as my CRG lanesplitters adapters which are on my Monster

No worries. I ended up ordering the Motovation bar ends and arrow CRG mirrors.

I tried the bar end mirrors and found them difficult to use, I felt you needed to move my head too much and detracted from my front vision a little. I found some aftermarket mirrors similar to the originals but longer that work a treat, just a little mod to the original mounts, easily reversible. Were cheap too.
