Installing CRG Hindsight?

Recommended Posts

botbullet0
Is there anything needed to install the mirror besides what comes with the mirror? I've seen some bar end replacements that are supposedly for mirrors, but that seems like a lot of money for just one mirror!

you need the adapters http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/crg-billet-internal-adapter-for-crg-bar-end-mirror I purchased the blind sight   http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/crg-blindsight-bar-end-mirror and yes they are small but I like them 100% better than stock since I could not see out of the stock mirrors. I like the look too. And yes that is the price for one
 
Yes they are expensive but they are nice. I have a different cheaper set for my other bike http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/oxford-bar-end-mirrors

That's actually much cheaper than the ones I've seen. Thanks for the link.

You don't actually NEED the adapters if you have 7/8" bars and can move the grips/controls in enough to mount he mirrors directly to the bars. That said, the bar ends make it all much cleaner in my opinion.
 
Do you have stock bars or aftermarket? If stock, I don't think the CRG adapters will work. That said, I also spotted this review on Revzilla:
 

I purchased this adapter to mount my CRG Hindsight Lanesplitter mirror to my 2015 Yamaha FZ-07. Turned out I didn't need it, because the mirror mounted perfectly to my left side bar end weight. Decided to keep the adapter for a possible future installation. Love the mirror.

I thought I had seen some pictures of this, which is why I asked this question. If I don't need any adapters, then I'll order the mirror now.

Easy way to do it would require threaded adapters or move everything inboard on the bars and attach to bars.
 
mechanic's way of doing it would require breaking the welds for the threaded inserts in the bars, and using the CRG adapters,
 
engineer's way of doing it would be to remove everything off the bars, build a cad model, relocate locating tab holes for all controls, scrap it start over. Drill new locator holes on bars and finally attempt to install bar end mirrors, only realizing after the fact that you were off in your initial measurements
 

ATGATT... ATTATT, two acronyms I live by.

Engineer's way of doing it is to buy aftermarket bars and put everything back on in under an hour then go use the rest of the day to ride.  True story.

I have the crg lane splitters. I used rhino moto bar ends as they keep the weight of the stock bar ends but allow you to mount mirrors
