Mirrors

I seen these on ebay. I have different grips on the stock bars these should still fit correct? Has anyone installed these, or any idea if they would be worth it? When I brought the bike they had bicycle clamped mirrors on them so I want to replace.

Why do you want bar end mirrors? Are the stock mounting holes on the brake lever and clutch broken or missing?

The right mounting location is broken. Haven't seen anything online cheap to just fix that. And since the left handle bar is bent a little bit I was thinking of getting drag bars, but wasn't sure which to get or if anything needs to be added in addition.

Well the bar ends need to be able to fit 7/8 diameter bars...guessing that would be 13mm . The stock bars would be a bit oddly bent for bar ends, but a set of drag bars would better.

So yes, they can work...but you will have to cut the grips and throttle sleeve for them to work.

careful with the throttle sleeve. I dont trust myself or my mechanic to do anything with the sleeves ever again.
