The 14 mirrors, with extensions, are excellent. I'd do that. I'm afraid these woudl interfere with the windshield....no proof, just a thought.

Tony, I dont know what planet I was on when I posted that abotu the bar ends...completely ignore that nonsense, and sorry for junking things up. They wont hit..they cant hit...

But, if you already have a 14, with good mirrors, just ebay spacer them. If you do, they'll be as good as any mirror you will run across.

OK.
I was going to say that you can put them under the handlebars or towards the outside and even if they were placed inward of the handlebar it wouldn't hit the windshield.

To install will I have to drill out what's inside the handlebar? It's not that simple as to use the nut thread already there?

Guys on another bike forum I belong to have taken their bar ends to machine shop & had groove machined into them to fit the width of the bar end clamp. Works very well & looks sano.

You're saying that the stock bar ends need some extra girth to fit the aftermarket mirror clamp?

As soon as my bar end mirrors are delivered I will know for myself. They're coming via the slow boat from China.

The inserts, for the bar ends, are REALLY in there. Seriously welded and such. I'd say you just about have to adapt to them vs removing them.

I finally tried the mirrors I had mentioned.

They are small and low profile. There is a gap between them and grips.
Didn't get better view. If you wear gloves with knuckle protection they will rub and hit the mirrors frequently. Maybe turn the mirrors to the outside when riding and turn them inward when lane splitting or storing bike.
