Bar End Mirrors from eBay
« on: July 16, 2008, 12:56:27 AM »
I bought a pair of bar end mirrors and they are terrible!!

You can check them out on eBay Item number: 310065900520. This style of mirror is great however the bar ends do not tighten enough against the bars. You can remove the bar end and clamp them against the bars but forget the bar ends! I almost lost the mirror once I thought I had tight enough.

You are better off paying more for a nicer pair. Something about "you get what you pay for..." ran across my mind as I grabbed the mirror right before it almost fell as I was riding down the highway.

If you are considering buying  pair like these DON'T, get mirrors with a better bar end!!

Odd i use these as well and don't have your problem, they are not nearly as nice as my pre crash rizoma mirrors, but i found i could get them tight by using the 1" bar insert rather than the one we're supposed to use. Also one of the mirror glass pieces did become loose and started rotating in the mount with vibration so it needed a bit of silicone caulking on the back and it's good as new. You do certainly get what you paid for...but my NICE rizoma mirrors ran $140 EACH
