Good stuff, didn't need it, kept it for future
I purchased this adapter to mount my CRG Hindsight Lanesplitter mirror to my 2015 Yamaha FZ-07. Turned out I didn't need it, because the mirror mounted perfectly to my left side bar end weight. Decided to keep the adapter for a possible future installation. Love the mirror.

Great for CRG bar end mirrors
I use these with the CRG lanesplitters on my Street Triple R - they look good, they hold well, and they fit CRG mirrors like a glove (duh).
I had one low speed lay down after hitting some paint in the road while leaned over quite a ways, back end washed out. Bar end did its job - handlebars are unscathed. Unfortunately, one lanesplitter mirror was ruined but that's the way she goes with bar end mirrors.
Pricey little suckers IMO but if you use CRG mirrors, you won't find a better fit.

Not for Ninja 300
This adapter looks very well made and looks like a great product however if you own a Ninja, this product is not compatible with the bars for this motorcycle. This adapter is for bars which when removing the bar end weights is hollow, as opposed to threaded.

Great At What It Does, Could Do More
Does exactly what it says it will, easy to install, and good quality. It'd be nice if you could select different weights given that these replace any weighted bar ends you wanted to use, however. Also, it's be nice if there was an option to put delron protectors on the end or something to protect from damage if your bike is knocked over or if you spill.

Perfect for 848 EVO
Perfect fit for my 848 EVO, Product was shipped on time, actually early and did exactly as it was intended for. Made my book look very very clean once installing the CRG hingdsight LS mirror

A must for your bar end mirrors
First off I didn't like the idea of having to buy another part in order to put the bar end Mirrors on my bike but the CRG adapters work very well with the CRG mirrors and the combination of the two work extremely well together.

Does it's job beautifully, but...
First off, this product works just fine. My blindside mirrors fit perfectly into the adapter for a very appealing result.
Install was pretty easy, but creates a few issues (will explain later). While install is somewhat hard to explain, all you have to do is throw on the little pieces and tighten using an allen wrench. At first you will wonder how it will ever work, but it will. I only needed to use the 2 base pieces for my FZ 09, as the handlebars are thinner.
Here are the issues, which is less about the product and more about bar end mirrors in general.
1) Be careful installing the throttle side adapter. Stock bar end weights are designed to fit nicely around the throttle to not get it jammed. If you install these adapters too close, they will restrict the throttle from moving properly. Obviously a stuck throttle is a bad throttle. Also, installing these adapters too far out will allow dust/water/ debris to get inside the handlebars. So you have to play around with it to get it as close as possible without restricting the throttle at all (or do some surgery on your grips/ bars).
2) bar ends are weighted for a reason. It keeps the handlebars more stable at higher speeds and generally helps with maneuvering the bars and therefore the bike. These adaptors are very light, so you lose the bar end weight aspect when installing them.
Both of these are pros and cons you have to take i suppose though when switching to bar end mirrors.
One last tip, make sure the bike is level before installing the adaptors. Heard several horror stories of the pieces breaking loose during install and falling into the handlebar. Fortunately, install is so easy that you can technically do it while sitting on the bike (for those without a vertical bike stand)
