R9T Racer and CRG Hindsight LS Mirrors

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.

Do you want a set of stock OEM bolts and bar ends from the original R nineT? They're silver but they are metal. Glad to send you mine.

Saber, back-off! Let someone else extend an act of kindness. I've got a set that I'll send you.

I can usually prepare myself when looking up BMW OEM pricing, but the price they have the nerve to charge for these is a breathtakingly savage violation!

Thanks to both of you gentlemen, but since saberr9t has reached his kindness quota for today, I'll PM you Spoon!

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.
