I don't really like the look of the bar end mirrors either but i don't want to get rear ended at a traffic light buy some cager who is to busy talking on his/her cell phone to notice me on my bike. I don't really need the flush mounted turn signals but i do want the bike to the street legal.

I ride a K7 1000.

hmmm, well I don't know about your local laws, but in AZ you aren't required to have turn signals if you use "hand signals" haha... which I don't really do.. But I don't have any signals on my bike.

I'd say just adapt to the stockers, I did.. I don't like the visibility from them, but it's way better than bar ends if you ask me!

i've got the bar ends and yes, they do vibrate quite a bit, but the visibility on them is alot better than the stock mirrors... it feels a bit weird at first to look down to see behind you but once you get used to it, its much better

the CRG 2inch bar end mirror works great and it is so small you can't really see it from any distance. It doesn't vibrate much at all either. Never had any problem with Popo either.(and they really tried once)

i don't like the way they look at all, but they do keep you legal. We get mixed feedback on them with some people saying they vibrate to the point they are useless and others saying they are great. I bet a lot is bike dependant and depends on if you have weighted bar ends, bb mod, what clipons, etc to cut down on vibrations.

I think I'm going to get bar-end mirrors; just because it would be so much cheaper to street-fighter my bike then to replace plastics...

Although those round ones seem a little... well dorky. But then... I'm on a '93, so I don't have much room to talk

Quick question......The yellow R6.........I looked on my microfiche at the 07 R6 and the 08 R6 and neither have the headlight like the one pictured. Did the owner modify it for projector beams or am I just missing something?

Yeah he modified it and added another projector beam. He has been doing it for local folks for a while now.

I was just interested at all. It looked different to me, then I noticed it and got curious
