CRG Hindsight Lanesplitter Bar End Mirror
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.

Crg lane splitter mirror
I'm very happy with these mirrors. Excellent quality. Different ways to mount mirror on bar end. Adds a great style to the bikes appearance giving a unique look. Takes a little adjusting to get it set on the bike but so far very durable.

Will not fit 09 R6
Nothing bad to say about these mirrors. You can feel the kind of quality you paid for. They don't vibrate and they add a sleek look to your bike. Only thing is that I needed to purchase the graves bar end adaptor because 09 R6 bars are filled inside. They will not fit without an adaptor. Other than that great product.

As far as bar end mirrors go, this is pretty much the same thing as every other mirror. While it installs with ease, I found that it would vibrate loose from time to time. I am not going to red loctite my bar end mirror (Never know if i want to replace it).
Overall, its a solid item. I was able to remove my clunck OEM mirrors and replaced it with this. Which still met all legal rules and allowed me to view behind me while at a red light.

I can see now!
Popped these on my 821 Monster and they're ten times more useful than the stock mirrors. They stay in place at speed and look great on the bike!

Much better than my stock mirrors.
I have a 2013 Ducati Monster 696 20th Anniversary Edition, which had 4.5" round mirrors that are supposed to have a traditional retro look to them. Many call them the Mickey Mouse ears, but I didn't mind the looks of them. I did, however, mind the lack of utility. They only showed me what was in the lanes to the left and right of me for a couple car lengths, and absolutely nothing at all directly behind me.
I looked up what other people had done on the Ducati forums, and saw that both Rizomas and CRGs were popular. I would have preferred oval mirrors, but I didn't want to shell out for Rizomas, so I got the CRG Hindsight LS. I mounted the mirrors on some Rhino Moto bar end sliders/mirror mounts, which are sized for CRG mirror clamps and worked perfectly.
I've ridden about 60 miles with them thus far, and vibrations haven't been an issue at city or highway speeds. The bar ends do add some weight and are supposed to reduce vibration, so I can't say how vibrations would be if the mirrors were clamped directly to the bars. That goes for different models of motorcycles as well, but air-cooled Ducati V-twins like mine aren't exactly known for smoothness. The glass of the mirrors seems like it displays reflections more clearly than the factory mirrors in spite of the slight convex shape to them.
Installation was easy, though like any sort of mirror without a friction-located ball joint, setting the mirrors can involve a bit of trial and error since you can't do it while in traffic. Vehicles in the mirrors appear smaller than in the stock mirrors, so determining make/model might be a bit more difficult (again, just the nature of the beast), but it's a fair trade-off to know where vehicles are around me without head checking.
Like other reviewers have mentioned, one of my mirrors does fold in more easily than the other, but neither has yet budged at highway speeds. The folding ability is a nice feature for those of us with tight garages, in addition to lane-splitting for which they're named after.

These are my second pair of CRG mirrors . I purchased my first pair (not from RevZilla) a few years ago for another bike.
The mirror glass is excellent, clear and has a wide field of view but that's where it ends. They were anodized black which faded to a purple color in just a few months on the bike.
This new pair from RevZilla are non-anodized aluminum that I hope will not have the fading problem. The anodized colors look sharp but I would be sceptical regarding their purchase. Because of the fading problem I can only give them a overall good rating. Positive note regarding RevZilla is great service and super fast shipping!
