What brand of mirror did you have, and what didn't you like about it? I'm thinking about getting some, might as well avoid one that's known to be crap

I have something like those ones installed on mine. There are some points to consider. I like the look much better, but the mirrors don't hold in the same position for too long. Mine always get moved by the wind so I can't see anything. I want to try and just set them into one fixed position by tightening the screws, but not really sure if it will work.

there is the one i bought and i was not at all happy the pic looks cool but its just cheap junk plastic it Velcros around your grip and feels bulky under your hand also doesnt even use a mirror just reflective tape... its a joke but i wish they had this style mirror but in billet and clamped on the the end of the grip and utilized a real mirror

There are few sportbike mirrors that look as neutral and work as well as the F4i mirrors. Bar end mirrors are a far cry from the effectiveness of what you had, stock.

Hey dave thanks for the input but the reason I'm looking at bar ends is because of my new fairings preferong to drill as few holes as possible
