Quickly scooping up a tiny little box the UPS man left on my doorstep, I hurried to the garage and unboxed my latest farkle: a set of Rhino Moto bar-end mounts and CRG Hindsight LS bar-end mirrors!
I selected the bar-end mounts that would allow me to retain the cool OEM bar-end. However, when I started to remove the existing bar-ends, my heart sunk as I discovered a cost-saving measure - the bar-end and bolt was just a single piece of molded plastic.
I installed everything, and easily removed the OEM bunny-ears, but the look of the unfinished bar-end is bothering me. Perhaps someone has a set they aren't using anymore and are willing to sell?
Here are some pics of the situation; I'll post more pics of the bike with the mirror swap tomorrow.
Was able to complete the installation, special thanks to Spoon for the donation of the bar ends! At first I was thinking black, but I think the silver provides a nice contrast and matches the other bits well. I can see why BMW made them silver in the first place.
