That is a sweet lookin' touring setup for the 919. Are those Throttlemeisters--and if so, how'd you get the CRG mirrors to work with 'em? And is that a Sargent? Nice lookin' handlebars, too.
And MTJSR, heading over the hill to see your setup would be great.
Thank you. It has worked great for me.
The seat is Sargent.
The bar is stock, with a SW-MOTECH Universal Handlebar Crossbar attached with Kuryakyn "P Clamps". The crossbar came from Twisted Throttle. The "P Clamps" can be found all over the place. If you haven't looked closely at those clamps, take a look: you can get a lot of ideas for applications. I use the crossbar to hold a camcorder when I'm on a trip.
The weights are the most basic Manic Salamander bar end weights. I got them a long time ago...when they only made the simple weights. Now they have a throttle lock weight and a bar end weight that accommodates a mirror like the CRG on the in-board end of the weight. So Manic Salamander has made the job a lot easier than what I am going to try to explain below:
Anyhow, I wanted to use the weights and the mirrors together. I cut the stems off the CRG handlebar mount adapters. I got a hex head bolt the same diameter as the bolt supplied with each Manic Salamander weight, but about an inch longer. I ran that new bolt through the CRG mount and the weight, and continued through the expansion sleeve. At the outside end of the expansion sleeve I placed two lock washers and a nut to attach to the bolt holding all the parts together. Then I pressed this whole assembly into the end of the handlebar, and tightened the bolt. As the expansion sleeve began to expand inside the bar I oriented the mirror and mirror mount the way I wanted it, and tightened it until the assembly was firmly attached to the handlebar.
A= CRG mirror
B= CRG bar end adapter with stem cut away
C and D= manic salamander bar end weight and stem
E= expansion sleeve supplied with bar end weight
H1= hex head on bolt used to replace bolt supplied by Manic Salamander
H2= end of hex head bolt
F= 2 lock washers
G= nut holding everything together
But! As stated above, this mirror and weight modification is much easier now because Manic Salamander has a weight to accommodate a bar end mirror like the CRG. It did not have such a product that rainy night when I reached for my t(rusty) hack saw.
I hope this explains the setup...
