What size mirror is that? Looks bigger than I thought. You are right about the wind resistance. It may actually push the bar if using a fixed one
The Rizoma bar end in the pic is removed in lieu of the CRG adapter. You can squeeze the CRG mirror and Rizoma bar end on the clip on if you so choose.

That's the 3" Lanesplitter mirror. The 2" Blindsight is a little too small in my opinion.

BTW... I only use the left side (after many years of using both sides) because I found the right side one is not necessary after a while. It was kept folded 99% of the time. The Hindsight has wide angle mirror and covers pretty much everything behind. The only "blind spot" would be right over your rear wheel (right) side which you should turn your head anyways.

Might be hard to believe but you only lose about what you would lose in a car from looking at your right rear view mirror without turning your head.

I found out that the bar end weight is not necessary. The mirror makes up for the weight. Right side Rizoma guard + bar end weight and left side with just CRG.

Avidmoto is right... It's the 3" Hindsight LS.

Here's the link http://CRG Mirror - Hindsight LS Lef..._cqlABbEDBAA04

If I remember correctly, the Arrow does not fold back. Only swivel up or down? If you like the Arrow's style and don't mind the "fixed" position... Then I don't see a problem going with it. Keep in mind that at higher speed whatever sticks out will cause air resistance however small the piece might be.

The Hindsight LS will fold by itself right around 250kph. It's got a ball bearing detent that will give way at speed or impact.
I mounted mine up tonight, and instead of using the bar end adapter, I kind of smooshed it on there. I have domino grips and the mirror maybe has 5-6mm out of the 10 it wants on the end of the bar, with the bar end kind of holding it on. It was driving me crazy not having the nice bar end

Do you think that would be a drawback/cause vibration? I'll test tomorrow. I'm thinking I can cut the red part of the grip (you can see it in the pics) thats on the inside of the bar and slide it in a bit more and make it all fit.

Or, just get a longer bolt and put the ducati bar end ---> spacer ---> bar in.


Question for you, what made you decide to mount it up over the bar, instead of toward you or away from you. I did toward me so that the mirror could fold back and have the bar end. Is it so that you dont have to look down as far? I may try that.

Bar end mirrors - any solutions yet?

Yeah... whatever works for you.

You can definitely squeeze it in if you grip allows the mount. The only problem is the position that the bar end will "allow" without crushing the mirrors, as you probably found out.

Since the mirror is wide angle, the subtle change in distance might affect the amount you want to see. At the end its just a matter of preference and what the install will allow.

You'll find that the amount of tuck might change how you want the mirror. Play around to see how much street/tuck position affects the viewing angle.

I found that there's a sweet spot for both. And it's usually as far forward as possible. You'll know what I mean once you play around with different positions.
Thanks from spinkick

That makes a lot of sense, i tried to adjust it while holding both handlebars, im going to try it how you have yours set up, thanks for the tips.

A little late for those of us that got bar end mirrors... but there's a new model out from CNC Racing.

I really like them. I'm thinking about getting one to replace the CRG Hindsight.

Here's a link from Bellissimoto. CNC Racing Rocket folding mirror

I personally buy lots of stuff from Bellissimoto (Randy and Lyle are great!). Got of bunch of stuff ordered and am anxiously waiting for their arrival. I highly recommend them.

What makes these different than the hindsight LS?

You can tighten down the hindsight so it won't fold if that's the problem
