Wish they were beefy-er
Looks great but a little worried on how they would perform in the case of an accident.

Where's the weight?
They look great...when they're not on the bike. They are exceptionally smaller than my stock bar ends and significantly lighter.
I was initially baffled by how to install these since they don't come with any kind of instructions. I ended up sending them back because they are just too small to look good as a replacement and (speculation) they're not going to work as well as the stock bar ends for reducing vibration or bike protection.
Get them if: You want something that is smaller, machined well, and looks sharp.
Don't get them if: You're looking to add weight to your bars or like the size of your stock bar ends but just want to add some sizzle.

These are a universal part so fit was an issue. The rubber was to thick initially to shove these into the bar. Fortunately I have a dremel and I just ground some of the rubber away until they slid into the bars. Then it's just as simple as turning them clockwise till they become tight. They are much smaller looking than the stock bar ends but look pretty good. Hopefully they don't fade over time.

Great looking and very easy to install.
The only thing I had to do was place star washers under the lock nut to keep it from coming loose.

Excellent lightweight Bar ends
Minutes to install and looks great on my 2008 R1. Perfect match and perfect fit.

Doesn't reduce vibration, but looks great
I bought these in the hopes that they would help reduce some vibration and because someone stole one of the stock bar ends. (Who steals bar ends?) They were advertised as "weighted" and although they do have some nice heft, they do not reduce handlebar vibrations on my K6 GSXR 600.
I gave a 4 on the ease of install because there was a lack of instruction on how to properly install. I might sound like a fool, but I couldn't figure it out until I did some trial and error.
On the GSXR's anyway, you have to tighten the back nut to where the rubber expands to the point where you kind of have to shove it into the handlebar with a little force. Then you turn clockwise with your hand once its in the handlebar until its tight.
The packaging was fantastic and felt expensive and as always RevZilla had the best service (arrived in two days).
For the price, they look great and offer better vibration cancellation than nothing, but not enough to brag to your friends about.
