Bar end mirrors - any solutions yet?

I'm looking at CRG arrows, but I dont know if anyone has the right bar end kit yet to mount them. Has anyone tried it themselves?

I use the CRG Hindsight Lanesplitter and the CRG bar end adapter on my V4. The clip ons internals on the V4 are different than the twin.

Yup... I also got the 7/8 adapter with the CRG Hindsight LS and works perfectly. Bar end on the V4 doesn't have the internal thread like the previous Panigale V2 models.

If you're installing only one side, like I have, don't worry about using bar end weights with the mirror. The mirror itself weighs enough and compensates the bar end at the opposite side.

Here's the Amazon link of the 7/8 adapter:

DDD helped me get my bar end mirror situation sorted. I went with the left side CRG Hindsight mirror. I can see stuff behind me now and it's clear.

My bike is at the shop getting some more goodies installed... So I can't take a picture now. I only have old pictures of it in folded position.



The reason why I chose Hindsight LS is because it can be folded away for high speed and in case of accidental impact during lane splitting or tight maneuvers. 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.

Hard to tell, but did you keep the rizoma bar ends?

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
