CRG Blindsight Bar End Mirror
Drop your big dumbo ear mirrors and grab one of these! Don't forget to buy the bar end adapter! I have this mounted on my left bar, & I can see over to my blind spot on my right side. I love this little mirror and after seeing it on my bike, my friends have gotten them too!

Fantastic. Been using this for years. Needed another. Awesome mirror
Kickass! This mirror is already on one bike of mine, and looked everywhere for it for my latest build!

Great little mirror
Don't really care for rear view mirrors but I got to have at least one on the left hand side and this mirror is perfect. Second one I purchase, the first one got knocked off by a cager, had to replace immediately and Revzilla got it to me in 2 days.

Great mirror for the minimialist!
I have this mirror on a 2015 R6 with the graves adapter and barends. The concave glass surprisingly provides you with a wide range of sight for such a small mirror. Was able to get it positioned so I can clearly see both to the left and behind. Getting rid of the big ugly high drag oem mirrors is a must. Do not regret buying this, and would recommend it to anyone who feels comfortable turning their head before changing lanes but wants to see behind them, and maintain street legal status.

This part fit my previous bar end mirrors no problem. Great buy for the price.

Expensive, but works great.
Does what it's supposed to. Not sure why the CRG stuff is so expensive, but it's definitely high quality. Clamps directly on the stock bar/bar end on my Ducati 848evo. I like that you can replace just the glass if it breaks.

Great Little Bar Ends, Not Quite Perfect
I've used stock mirrors, CRG Lanesplitter Hindsights, knock-offs, and the Blindsights - and this is the one I choose to run right now. Personally, I think they're attractive when mounted on a bike, but that's up to you to decide. Also, I have a lot of narrowness considerations!
First off, I don't use these to supplement other mirrors as intended. Instead, they're my main mirrors. Obviously they're small, so you need to be comfortable with a bit less view or this isn't for you. However, they're top quality and I haven't seen 2" bar end mirrors that are better. They minimize vibration with the rubber gasket that's built in, the overall quality is good, and if you get the bar-end mounting kit then they're easy to install - though you can no longer mount your old bar-ends. My main gripe is this: I wish they folded back like the 3" "lane-splitter" CRGs though, as I'm always needing to narrow my bike's handlebars.
I fight through San Francisco traffic and do a lot of lane splitting where these get in the way 2/3rds as much as 3" mirrors. Also, my bike, like an Italian woman, is not the sort you leave on the street corner. Instead, I have to push a litrebike with long handlebars through two narrow single doorway on a hill and over two steps into my home.As you can imagine, that's a pain in the butt and any mirrors that make a bike wider make that tougher. It's times like this that I wish I wasn't using bar-ends, or using ones that folded.
One important thing to note is that the mirrors unscrew from the brackets, so you may end up looking to one side and seeing that the sucker fell off (like mine did on the highway). Seriously, use Loc-tite, or you'll end up needing to get a replacement! Now that I KNOW that though, I'm actually glad they're easily removable so I can do that while parking, even if I can't while splitting lanes. Still, it'd be nice if you didn't need an allen wrench to tighten them in this case; a little tumbscrew would make the frequent removal and re-tightening of the mirrors much easier.
Hopefullly CRG will make a foldable version or add a thumbscrew, plus include a little Loc-tite in the future! Meanwhile, I may go to mirrors that actually don't add any width to my bike.

Completes the Bike
I ride an FZ 09 and was looking to clean up the bike a little. These mirrors did an amazing job! The mirrors are quite small, but that's why I purchased them to begin with. Despite their smaller size, they allow you to see all your blind spots and work just fine. You may not be able to name the make and model of vehicle behind you, but you'll see that they are there.
Note, for the FZ 09 you'll have to buy the adapters in order for them to fit properly. This means you will also lose your weighted bar ends. You don't realize how heavy bar ends are until you swap them out. Ive noticed a difference in how the bike handles without them, but it's nothing drastic. Just takes some getting used to. I also don't get any vibration or wobbling at high speeds (which is supposedly why bar ends exist).
Overall, great purchase.
