I installed 7/8" x 34" flat ttrack bars. Very similar to oem bars except black and no crossbar. Bar end mirrors are 3" round universal type ~ $20 from china. Used precision razor to cut off grip ends, used dremel to open end of plastic throttle tube. Mirrors are friction fit - mount by expanding inside bar ends. They've held up well so far and less vibration than stock ones.

That's wider than the stock bars which I find to be painfully wide on long rides. You must be Sasquatch.

That's good to hear, at least. Have you got any pics of it on here? I'll probably go with Renthals (the factory is only 30 miles from here!), and I saw they also fitted those on the Super Hooligan Flat Tracker as well, and looked pretty good. I don't want to take the look and feel too far from the standard bars, as I quite like em!!

I find pretty much Everything painful on long rides. I make a great riding companion provided you like to stop for a break every half hour.

Renthals seem a popular choice. The bars I fitted aren't much wider than stock, maybe an inch, my SCR isn't here to measure. No, no pics, I need to figure out how to do that on this thing.

***HISTORIC THREAD RESURRECTION ALERT***

Anyone ever heard of Barracuda mirrors, or have a pair fitted? Italian, apparently.....

Im thinking of having a change from the bar-end mirrors Im currently running, and they have some funky designs. Cost an arm-and-a-leg, like (as in, Rizoma territory!)

All are available in the colour options shown on one of the pictures.

Opinions?

Ben

Do you understand half the **** he says? No, but I know what he means.

I bought these about a year ago and have been very happy with them. These are the shorter stalk version; the longer is similar to the stock lollipop height.
