Mirrors

So, long story short, bike fell on left side and one of the mirrors got kind of messed up, I did fix them (Just had to twist the nuts that hold the mirror in place around a bit) but I'm kind of wanting to do something different with them. At this point I'm kind of wanting bar end mirrors, but I don't know how to set those up really. I don't go between cars, and filtering here in Kansas is illegal from what I understand.

Basically I'd like to know what would be some decent bar end mirrors. When I take the mirrors off, the connections are just an empty hole, but I would be able to find a nut that fits, I'm sure. I'm not going to sell the bike at any point, so I'm not worried about any sort of modifications. I'm going to be riding it into the ground, until the engine either blows up, or it gets majorly wrecked. Yes, I am maintaining it well, too.

It's a 2011 Versys 650.

Sidenote: I'm also looking for a sportier windscreen. The previous owner put on a Zero Gravity Sport Touring windscreen, I was thinking about the SR series, which is 4 inches shorter. I'm going to eventually replace the windscreen anyway, because the one on it now is cracked. I also don't want the mirrors to stick way over or be level with the windscreen.

just a heads up, legal mirrors have a minimum surface, you won't see as well (arm in the way) and they will break at the first tip over.

for me they'd have to go under the bars. i'd knock them off the first ride home otherwise.
