I agree that you have to learn to look in a slightly different place compared with standard mirrors but the deliberate action of looking engages you in riding safely, which is a good thing imo.


Thank you for watching and your kind words! I agree on the deliberate looking part. Took me a little while to re-calibrate from the stock mirrors, but now its just part of the routine. Plus, with the bar ends, when changing lanes, you are half-way to a proper head-check, and therefore more likely to do it.

Rizoma Spy R 80mm bar end mirrors are the absolute dogs bollocks. Black or polished aluminium look. Nice subtle blue tinge from mirrors. Fit straight on using an Allan key. 100% crackin bit of kit. They supply plugs for the OEM mirror holes too. Can be mounted in all sorts of positions to suit your taste. Excellent field of view, with zero blurring or wobble. Around £120 a pair. There is smaller and bigger ones too. Sexy as fook looking too which is also good for aesthetically important guys. Better looking than guzzi bar end mirrors and a fraction of their price. Seriously.  They are that good.

That is a great price for the Rizoma's, in the US they retail for almost $150 a piece

I bought some of the 820's from Classic Parts Limited. Also got the fittings for the Triumph T120 from them. I think the weight of the mirrors offsets the loss of the bar end weights. I have not had any issues. 
Shiny side up, rubber side down!
