I actually like it on that Duc best with all 4 mirrors installed at the same time. Seriously. It's that "custom" look I've been trying to create...

Sorry sold locally.
BUT, here's a place sells them at a REALLY good price:

I love my personal set. The design is so very clean and it goes well with the 919's round headlight scheme.

I like the design of those mirrors. The adjustment possibilities are really nice. But they do seem to add quite a bit of width to the look of the bike. Just my

An anal habit. When not riding, I cover it eventhough the bike is always garged. Heck, I even cover my CR250 motocrosser.

I thought the same too. The same argument can be said of normally mounted mirrors. . .but regarding height, especially the OEMs. I did considered Rizoma mirrors which their height can be adjusted. . .the ones I liked are too pricey for me.

However, they don't nearly add as much width as CRGs, especially in the top or bottom mounted configurations and in black.

I have the CRG's and they don't appear to be as wide as these ones -- those bar ends stick out quite a ways and the CRG adapters are only about 1/2". But I'm sure you're right, in the up or down position they must be narrower overall. Those bar ends just make the grips look very long I guess...

I totally agree when you put it that way. . .the bar ends do look like part of the grips. Most bar ends (the anti-vibration doo-dads) always make the grips look longer, just like like 919 OEMs. Funny thing too is that I even cut 3/4" off each end of my Renthal Ultra Lows!

9nineteen why did you sell the mirrors? Do they work well? Are they worth getting, or is stock better?

I actually had an extra pair for Renthal bars. As far as bar end mirrors work, the Oberons work well. . .they do their job of seeing what's behind and to the sides. For the money, the quality is one the best. These are not cast aluminum pieces but rather machined. My choice mainly was for aesthetic reasons. I wanted an uncluttered streetfighter/cafe racer look. There are mirrors that do a far better job of checking rear and side while riding. . .that includes the stock Mickey Mouse ears.
