Driven Racing D-Axis Bar End Weights
looks sharp...now you actually see the bar ends!
I love this product as the black and blue compliment my driven D3 grips perfectly! I was tired of the standard grips and ends so thought I'd mix it up...and I couldn't be happier. In the past you couldn't even see my bar ends because of hand size.and placement. But now everyone else can certainly see!
The only draw back is there's quite a large gap on my gsxr750 from the grip to the bar end. But a quick shave of some of the bar end with a sander and the thing looks money!

Easy to install
Definitely cleans the end up. They are weighted nice and give the bike that sharp look.

It looks good, easy to install, but way too light.

Bought for GSR750
I thought they would replace the previous bar ends, but they don't, they just mounted onto the ends extending the overall width of the bar. Very unhappy about it. It was a universal fit so I shouldnt complain.
They are lighter than I thought they would be, but everything else was as expected out of the box.

Revzilla needs to update fitment info. Also, these are quite light.
Couldn't get them to fit, despite having a 5/8" bar. Went to Driven's site to see if there were installation tips, and found out that I need to buy adapters. Even their site is misinformed, saying only some Kawasaki bars need these adapters, but I have a stock FZ6 and will need adapters to make these work. This really should be a note on the product page under fitment, no idea why it's not. Here's the link: http://drivenracing.com/shop/hand-controls/bar-ends/bar-end-adapter
Concerning he actual bar ends, I like the hidden hardware concept. The finish is very nice, attractive design and no blemishes on the machined aluminum. I don't like how small they actually end up being though. IMO they look out of place sizewise, despite looking good. A major complaint is how light they are. For this price, I expected something more substantial, such as what the Woodcraft end weights appear to be. Since the fitment won't work, I can't tell what effect they have on vibration.

Super Happy With These! Here's Why!
Bad news is, I do not have these anymore due to a low-side, but let me tell you. They were AMAZING while they lasted. Looked really well with my FZ-09 and im so happy I had these on when I went down. I went down at about 35-40 mph and they were solid. Granted the yamaha Engine guards and OES Axle sliders helped, the two things that ate the ground the most was this bar end and engine guard. Bent a little but kept my asv levers from hitting the ground. Even though they were kind of a pain to install, I wont go with another bar end, super durable.

Looks great but...
The products looks great even in the box. I purchased them to dress up my bike a little and driven claims they reduce bar vibrations. The vibration part does not apply to my bike since the bars end weights are not interchangeable and now they are hallow. I knocked the product a star because of the fit. They are a little weird to I stall and because of that I have to constantly check them so they don't fall off
I have yet to find out how they will hold up in a crash. I'm happy with the purchase just wish there was a weight option so minimize the bar vibration.

These look great. Completely happy with them. I did have to trim the rubber a little as they did not fit in the Pro Taper bars.
