Tried searching, couldn't really find info or pics...is anyone using Barkbusters or other type of handguard in conjunction with bar end mirrors? I just made the swap to bar end mirrors and I freaking love them. No vibes, fish-eye view of rear direction and I'm able to angle one for normal riding and the other for tuck view.
thanks bro, the mirrors I have actually bolt to the end of the bar, i was looking at the Barkbusters VPS Handguards...the TwistedThrottle page states that you must purchase the Versys End Weights but I bet I could rig something half the width of these End Weights and slip the Mirrors in between.
Those are BikeMaster (TANAX) Napoleon from BikeBandit. You don't need a shim, just cut off the keyed tube that runs through the rubber to about 3/8" past the metal plate and rubber cap. Bevel the keyed part a little so it will not quite bottom out in the recess in the end of the hand guard bar. Use the bolt that comes with the mirror to screw into the stock handlebar. You will need to trim the rubber covers that go on the end of the hand guard bars. You can turn them in so you can see the edge of your top box and still not see your arms or shoulders :-) They also flip to six positions so you can flip them in so they don't extend beyond the bar ends. Handy in the garage.
I can post a better picture of the mounting if needed. I didn't post the original picture to showcase the mirrors.
