CRG Hindsight Lanesplitter Bar End Mirror
To keep the chances of broken mirrors to a minimum I installed a pair of CRG lanesplitter bar end mirrors on my '14
Ducati Diavel. This product is of the highest quality and finish, no vibration at any speed. Plus they fold up to keep the chance of broken mirrors to a minimum.

The Best 3" Bar Ends - Avoid the Knock-Offs!
I've used stock mirrors, CRG Blindsights, knock-offs, and this is one I recommend to folks. I think they're attractive when mounted on a bike, but that's up to you to decide. They may or may not need a mounting kit for your handles.
Despite their size, the convex glass gives you good visibility and they're top quality. 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. Especially happy, as I'm always needing to narrow my bike's handlebars. When they're folded, they still stick out a bit, so It's be handy if I could easily remove them altogether and put them back on again, but not sure that's really possible.
I fight through San Francisco traffic and do a lot of lane splitting where these get in the way by adding 6" to my width. While it's a pain to fold them in and out all the time, often needing to readjust afterward, it's nice that I can. 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.
My previous bike a knock-off of this mirror installed, but the ball-bearing that allowed the mirror to fold eventually gave out, plus at any speeds over 70 MPH the mirror would fold back inward due to wind pressure - hassling me by requiring me to use the heel of my palm to push it back out all the time. When I replaced with CRG, those problems went away!

A Bar End Mirror that Actually Works!
I tried a few cheaper alternatives and they never held fast at speed. These are rock solid. The convex shape is great for a wide field of view, and the hinge allows me to fold the mirrors down to get into tight spots like parking in my garage much easier. They are pricey, especially if you add the extra money for the bar insert mounts, but they are modular and should last a long time.

If you have a Striple, CRG universal adapters wont work.
Word of warning. If you have a 13+ street triple or Street Triple R you will need to purchase different adapter. Rhino moto makes a set that double as bar end sliders. Definitely worth it.
This mirrors are night and day improvements over my stock mirrors, the stock mirrors only gave me good views of my elbows, while these give me a good view of what is behind me and too the sides, and the fact that they fold in makes they amazing for riding around in the city. Durable and easily adjustable as well.

Save your Life
These replaced the jokes that were the stock mirrors on my Ducati. Those batwings did a sweet job of showing me if my elbows were trying to make a pass but little else... maybe "wow that jacket looks good"!
These are awesome and well worth the money BUT you really (probably) need the bar-end adapters too. Don't be a fool and skip them thinking these will fit around your bars. Free shipping & free returns if you buy them all at once. I had to order the adapters later and put off the mirror install by a weekend... sad panda. Also I just "had" to buy shoes to meet the free ship minimum when I ordered the adapters... happy rider, less happy credit card statement.
Anyway, the products themselves install easy, are adjustable after install, and don't move unless you want them to fold in. To be sure I tested up to 115mph. If there is any semblance of a downside it may be the convex mirror which makes things a little smaller and appear farther away but gives you a better overall view, and that may just save your life.
All in all, these are great, and look great. They might be the single best thing I ever do to the bike.

Best way to see past your shoulders
I have installed CRG HS lanesplitters on the last 5 bikes I have owned. The fit and finish in impeccable and they provide a nice clean look by removing the factory mirrors. I install them with the mount point up and they provide a clear, unimpeded rear view. They do not vibrate and are easily adjusted when needed. The ball and socket design allows you to adjust them without tools yet they maintain position extremely well.

Had these for about a year, love em
Had these on a Buell for a little less than a year. Can't complain - very easy to mount and adjust, and the folding action is handy for storing the bike in a garage and gives you some peace of mind when you're splitting lanes or cutting it close to objects of any kind.
Highly recommended - finish is clean, construction is solid, and they look great. Haven't had any vibration problems, either.
