Have you bought them yet? If so, what do you think?

I expect to get them tomorrow. My worry with the mirrors is that the mounting clamps cannot be opened enough for them to go over the more than 31 mm diameter RhinoMoto bar end. But we'll see what happens.

I see your problem. Aluminum has a poor fatigue limit (I'm not sure of the proper terms), every time you bend it it gets weaker. If you try to stretch the mirror over your bar end it will snap. It's not that flexible.
If you have access to a lathe you can turn down the bar end on the grip side so that you can slip the mirror over it. A machine shop could do both of them in five minutes. Or if you have a drill press you could mount the bar end using a screw and turn it down with a file.

It's not the worst thing. Or you could purchase the proper type bar end.

I emailed the company through their link and asked about warranty about corrosion but they have not got back to me.
If I get them it will be the stem mounts.

The description says full anodized aluminum with SS screws.
 I think these are awesome but there is no shipping option to the USA. Zed did you ask about options to ship to the US as I too would want to know more

are your RhinoMoto Barends meant for bar end mirrors or just barends?

I never realized the seat on the Rhino Moto bar ends was  at 31mm ... not sure how those work with any bar end mirrors.

They will work at least when there are two bolts on the opposite sides of the clamp so that you can split it. If I cannot use RhinoMoto bar ends I'll get these: https://www.highsider-germany.de/produkt/highsider-handlebar-ends-alu-black-f-kawasaki-m8/?lang=en

Looking a bit closer at the pics the mirrors actually seem to  slide over the end of the bar ends ... that is a bummer.
