Cheapy cheap bar end mirrors!

Anyone tried these?? I think that for $20 it's well worth taking the chance...

If you want mirrors with bar weights, try this seller. I haven't tried his mirrors but I got his levers and they are amazing. Shipping was 7 days from the time I purchased

My buddy bought some of those. I think they are OK but there isn't a lot of weight in the end... but the bases on his are Al so maybe these are different...?

Yeah? No vibration issues? Nice and clear? Good vis? (I'm assuming you're talking about the ones I posted..?)

I had the one's from you original post. If they are the same that I purchased, the mirror was plastic and scratched easily. The little black things that are supposed to hold in the mirror (plastic crap) fell out after less than two miles so the mirror when flying.

Power.freaks on ebay has them for about $18 with free shipping.
Found one of their listings - http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/B-CBR...Q5fAccessories

They are AWESOME for the price. The mirror is real glass and build quality is just fine.

Press Any Key To Continue.

i bought from autodinamics.

I like them the finish is nice, they mounted easily and they look awesome. I can tell they vibrate a little more than the with the stock bar weights in but not enough that it makes your hands feel wierd after a ride. I did about an hour and a half trip today and didnt feel it afterwards.

I've got a set, they're fine. Nothing spectacular, but they are no more or less crappy than they look in the pictures. The mirror housing is metal (aluminum?) and the clamp is a cumby white metal that does the business it needs to. Mine have a habit of coming a little loose and moving around, but I dont yarn them down too tightly. Look nice on the bike. I liked them well enough to buy a second set after a drop tested the bike and busted the left one up.

Please dear god dont accidentally order a carbon fiber appliqué set. They are all over ebay.
