CRG Hindsight Lanesplitter Bar End Mirror
Solved my rear-view challenge
The stock mirrors on my 2015 Yamaha FZ-07 are very good except for looking directly behind the rider, especially when they are positioned properly for highway travel - out to the sides enough to allow for wide lanes.
Adding the CRG Hindsight Lanesplitter to the left bar end and pointing it to the rear solved the problem for me - not replacing but augmenting the stock mirrors.
I don't believe in lane splitting, at least not where it's not legal; but the folding feature is really handy in tight spaces.
The mirror attached perfectly to the existing bar end weight, only requiring trimming the raised part of the outside end of the grip (about 1/4") to make clearance. (See included pic.)
I would not recommend this mounting method for the right (throttle) side of the bar.
I had purchased but did not need the Internal Adapter.
The quality of this mirror is very very good. I wish it were a little less convex ("objects closer than they appear"). No vibration or image shake at all.
It is really nice to be able to check the 6:00 o'clock view, especially when one needs to quickly pick between a panic stop and a swerve for cover (darn texting tail gaiters).

Crystal Clear and Great Looks!
I purchased one of these bad Larry's for my '09 Monster 696. Anybody who rides the 696 knows how bad the OEM mirrors are. This is a cutting-edge mirror that not only looks great but is excellent in functionality. I only have it on my left handlebar and I have all the visibility I need. The folding mechanism is also superb.I have no suggestions for improving this product and I am a very happy rider because of it.

Great steady mirrors
These mirrors look fantastic on my Moto Guzzi V7 Racer and were easy to install. The hinge on the mirror is great for me since the bike resides between two cars. My biggest concern was vibration due to the hinge but no problem there - they hold steady very well.
If I could change one thing about them, it would probably be to make them just slightly less concave. Still work great though!

I bought these mirrors and the handlebar adapters for my 2013 Ducati Monster 696. My friend helped me install them and she didn't install one of the adapters properly, so I lost one on the highway within a week of putting them on. We didn't use any loctite.
With the adapters, these mirrors made my bars significantly wider, making it harder to split lanes.
I bought a new mirror and was about to have it installed by another friend when we realized that I don't use much of my grips (I'm a 5'3" girl with average size hands), so instead of using the adapters, he just cut down my grips and mounted the mirrors directly to my handlebars. This worked fantastic and I was thrilled, only to find my motorcycle stolen out of my garage a couple of days later. Oh well.
I just bought a used monster it came with a different brand of after market lane splitter mirrors that I can't stand. They hardly move and they certainly don't fold in. I need them gone, pronto, so I'm purchasing these CRG mirrors yet again!

Bye bye stock mirrors.
I was a bit wary of getting a bar end mirror because I wasn't sure of how much visibility I would have using just one mirror. Once I put the mirror on (which was a piece of cake) I was surprised of how much more I could see and once the stock mirrors came off my bike looks so much sleeker. Great Purchase the only thing is that everything in the mirror looks so far away but I'm sure in time I'll get used to it.

Awesome mirror, great for seeing behind you
I bought one of these mirror for the sole purpose of being able to see behind me for my Ninja 300 stock mirrors are only adequate for seeing to the sides of me. Thus far it works great and I've even thought about buying another one for the other side and getting rid of the stock mirrors. One thing for installation is for the Ninja 300, you do not need the adapter for when I removed the bar end weights, and expecting to see a hollow hole, the bars have a threaded hole M8 1.25 60mm is the diameter and length of the screw I had to buy to add the mirror to the tip of the bar end then put the bar end weight then insert the screw. Hope this helps someone, it took me a while to do research and figure everything out.

Pretty good view
If you lane split like I do (live in Los Angeles county so it's a must to lane split) or just like the Sleek look
This this product does the job much easier to lane split
With this Mirror and looks pretty good on my bike small but
Wide angle of view vibration is lil compared to my stock mirrors
I only have one but thinking of getting a second one price
Is a lil up there but like they say you pay for what you get
Love revzilla they will keep getting my business thanks...

I must if you split
All too often in CA on the local streets, there are drivers that do not understand the meaning of spacing when stopped at a signal. Especially in the compact streets of Los Angeles. The CRG hindsight LS mirror has helped me countless times to go in between w/o scratching other peoples cars.
The mirror is sturdy and the joint is responsive. Bought these again when i went down in january.
