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.

Accept no substitues
Before I purchased these adapters I tried to use an off-brand bar-end adapter from another website. They didn't fit quite right, didn't go in all the way, and I couldn't get them to come out. As a result, I had to replace my handlebars completely and put the proper CRG adapters on them. They fit flush against the end of the bars (1" outer diameter - Triumph Thruxton) and look great!

Piece of cake
Very easy to install once you figure out how it goes together on a 2011 Ducati Monster. Don't need the included spacer to make it work.

Does Not Play Nice With Stock Threaded Bar Inserts
Before I bought these, I posted a question asking if they were compatible with the stock threaded inserts on the bar ends. Didn't get an answer, but I saw somebody else say they mounted these on their Street Triple. So I tried them on mine, and they are not compatible with the threaded bar ends. They've got a long pointy bit of the adapter itself that sticks about half an inch into the bar, so they can't screw right on there. You would have to take the stock ends off and move the controls. That's not something I was interested in doing. I bought a knock-off CRG (you know the ones, they're easy to find and usually cost less than $20 bucks), and used its adapter, which does not have a pointy bit. The CRG clamped right onto there, and the whole thing screwed onto my stock bars without any fuss. It is also much more secure than a shimmed insert would be.

Love these things!
After picking up some Rizoma bars my CRG hindsights wouldn't fit. These cured the problem. Very easy to install (just read the instructions if you get confused. The picture will show you how to use the slanted spacers) and work perfectly. No vibration in my crg's using these.
I haven't crashed them so idk how they hold up but they hold the mirrors perfect and look great. Very happy with these, if you need them, don't hesitate to buy them.
