CRG Billet Internal Adaptor For CRG Bar End Mirror
Fitment issues with BMW S1000RR (all model years)
While this is a quality made product this will not install on a BMW S1000RR without extensive modification to the handlebars or replacement of the stock handlebars. The stock design has threaded internals that secure the stock bar ends. You will have to mill out the internals. This is not easily done, who has a vertical mill available? The other option is to put clip-ons on the bike. This is difficult due to the stock setup and how they connect to the triple, they are not "clip-ons". The easiest route was to order new bar ends from Rhino Motorcycle Products. They designed a weighted bar end or unweighted if you prefer with a notched section to specifically fit the CRG handlebar brackets. They secure into the bar ends using the stock M12 bolt. A pair will set you back about $80 with shipping but it's cheaper than switching to clip-ons.

Straight forward install, as long as there isn't a custom application
Easy peasy install on the clutch side. Throttle side can be challenging to prevent the adapter from rotating or causing friction/resistance with the throttle.
Depending on the grips you have, you may run into issues. I have Kuryakyn Iso-Grips installed on my Harley, and a Brakeaway cruise control device, so it presented a need for modification.
See the video for how I got it to work.

So easy to install
Didn't want to move my grips and levers and reservoirs. These billets made accommodating the mirrors without too much work so easy.

Great quality product, easy to install. I don't know about durability, if only had the product 2 months. So far, so good.

Took literally 30 seconds to install and now don't have to worry about the mirrors falling off...

For my FZ8
I gave 3 stars for "installation" because it took some work to remove excisting bar end adapter. After all was said and done. The adapter work perfectly and CRG mirrors look AWESOME as well!!!

I have a 2013 Triumph Street Triple and these bar ends do not work with the OEM bar. The bar on the street triple is not hollow and has a thread for the bolt that is it. I made this adapter work by grinding it down and had to used a different bolt which the size was in between the oem and one included in the kit. Overall the bar ends are good and the crg arrow bar end mirrors are great and give me a better view compared to stock ones

A little pricey, but necessary.
Considering the already high price of CRG mirrors, it seems a little ridiculous for them to make you pay *another* $20 for each handlebar just to be able to fit the mirrors. (The instructions say that if you don't want to spend the extra money, you can just "move all of your controls inward," as if that's something you can easily accomplish in 2 minutes with your bare hands.) And, the instructions are a little light on detail -- it takes a little figuring out before you realize that the thing works like a giant origami puzzle, and you have to get the pieces to fit together just so, hold them together and hope they don't come apart before you get them inside your bars. Once you've figured all that out, though, the installation is quick, and they work like a charm. Rated them as "average" on durability because I've only had them on the bike for a month or so. However, they seem pretty sturdy, and unless I drop the bike on its side, I don't see them coming off or falling apart anytime soon.
