barend mirrors installiation question/help ??

One of my barend mirrors was loose (came on the bike), and I took it out then tried to put it back, and theres no way it will tighten up.. Here is a pic I have of the parts I have, am I doing something wrong? or am I missing a piece that helps it tighten up? if so anyone know if u can buy spare parts w/o buying all new mirrors?

Nothing is missing. Remove the mirror from the adapter. Back out the screw until there is room for the 2 half pieces. Place the 2 half pieces into each notched side of the adapter. You can wrap a small piece of scotch tape to hold them in place while you insert the adapter into handle bar. The tape is not necessary but if it helps by all means use it.

Tighten the adapter screw, as you do this the 2 metal half pieces will expand.

Once it feels tight replace the mirror, adjust, and your done.

my end piece must be broke, (the threaded part), as i will fit inside the two aluminum pieces.. and I dont see how it would make them expand.. it still fits loose inside the bars..

Back out the screw. By any chance are the threads of the screw stripped?

This is what it should look like prior to inserting into the bar.

It's hard to see - The 2 half pieces should be 180 degrees apart and sitting inside the threaded thingy. Inspect the threaded thingy, is it damaged in any way? When the screw is turned, the threaded thingy will spread the 2 half pieces.

it looks like you are missing pieces - there should be a total of 4 little aluminum half collars that fit around the adapter - two inner, two outer. they are probably still inside your handlebar (if you just removed the adapter).

Lets put this thread back on track. There are only 2 side aluminum spreader pieces. I just pulled mine. The grunge is excess grease I use to keep the spreaders in place while I insert the adapter. Assemble yours so it looks like mine.

Go to your local bike shop and look in the dirt bike section. They have bar end wedges and screws...they are meant for those hand guards. Use them to mount your mirrors. They are awesome! I'll try and get a part number for you.

you're missing the two spreader pieces... they are cylindrical but one end is angled to fit into the front (the bar end where the mirrors attach) so that when you turn the screw, it pushes them up the angle on the black piece and spreads the outer cylinders.

look at the picture below to see the pieces i'm talking about... they're already encasing the screw




i guess i should have read every post before i decided to post this repeat... oh well

I am going to assume you have the standard steel 7/8" Honda handle bar. Correct?

If this is the case then you will need the 2 additional half cylinder spacers as shown below. My top photo is for the thick wall aluminum Renthal handle bar.

It appears you have the 2 pieces shown below but you are missing the 2 smaller spreaders shown in the photo above. In any event CRG should be able to get you the missing spreaders.

Good luck getting the missing angled spreaders from CRG--shouldn't be too hard. If you decide that bar-ends aren't for you and go back to regular mirrors, though, I'll buy the CRGs from you...

well i ordered the 25 dollar mounting kit for the mirror.. i'm not pleased with the way it mounts.. i put it in, and it deosnt seem too sturdy.. when fully torquing it , it causes the mount to cock a little. and can still turn it with your hand if u turn hard enuff.. its about to fall off again soon..

So whats the best way to mount these mirrors on the honda 919? from what I can tell they recommend mounting on the bar with the clamp like w/o the adapter.. but to do that on the stock bars would require u to move everthing inward.. which no room.. looks like throttle side still needs to be moved in a little inward so the mount will rest flush with the bars..

so does the dirt bike ends work? which brand name? also if I was going to mount the clamp on the bar itself, and wanted to install new handlebars.. what is the best bar to keep about the same rise or higher as stock bars? dont want any lower..
