Default cheap bar ends?

One of my OEM bar ends fell out. Does anybody know of any that are a good quality (I don't know how high quality they need to be "haha") that look similar to the OEM ones or that are not spikes or something crazy. I do not want to spend a lot on them, that is why I am not just buying one through Honda.

Replacing the bar end proly wont fix your problem. Why did the stock one "fall" out. Did the hole strip out? Or did the whole insert come out? Whats gonna prevent your new high dollar replacements from falling out? And Mr. orange, they're not plastic, they're metal and the "carbon fiber" is essentially just a sticker.

They fall out because people dont loctite them on.. usually...

I bought a set of delrin ones off ebay... they were $13 or so shipped.. they look just like OEM and are quality pieces.. plus they arent alum or metal or 'spikey'

Look at cheapcycleparts.com thats where I bought my bar ends. I ended up putting stock grips and bar ends back on my bike... I think they look best
