Bar end mirrors and new grips installed

My previous bike, Marauder 1600, had a bar end mirror and I really liked it so I decided to get some for my Versys.

Bought the mirrors on Ebay and the grips on Wish. Both fit well but had to go get longer bolts for the bar end weights. Bought 55mm bolts and they fit perfectly.

Grips are nice, easy to put on, came with everything needed to install gas cables as well.

As winter is quickly approaching here up North Im unable to try them so far. Hopefully I will grt a fairly decent day to try them out...I hate winter!!

Nice looking mirrors indeed. Too bad winter is setting in. We abandoned our summer home in Maine last week - just before the snow began to fall - and are now back in what is supposed to be warm and sunny San Antonio, TX. Damp and raining but at least it's in the mid 60s and the weekend is supposed to be warm and sunny. I'll think about your bar end mirrors while we're out riding. Keep warm and be patient!

If I could move down south for the winter I surely would! Lucky bastard haha. This was actually my retirement plan, buy an RV, 6 mths down south, 6 mths up in Canada, but my daughter decided to throw a monkey wrench in my plans and my wife and I are now raising our two grandsons, 5 and 8...so no retirement for me yet...but it's all good love those boys to death.
