My set up with the rhinomoto bar end and cheap ebay mirrors work really well! But I like those mirrors in this thread, I might get them ._.

Got them and as expected RhinoMoto bar ends are a no-go and I have to order ones that will work with these. I just mock-up installed one straight to the handle bar to see how it looks, it's tiny and thin and seems to complement the looks of the bike I think. The adapter ring (22 mm to 25,4 mm) is metal.

I need to revisit the Oxford controller unit installation, it now sticks out like a sore thumb  :001:

The shape of those mirrors work perfect with lines of the bike.  :028:
But now the Oxford controller is worse than a sore thumb, it is a tragedy.  :110:

If you use the half moon clamp from a ninja 650, you can delete the mirror stems that stick out. Then you could mount the grip controller lower down so it blends in more with the handlebars.

That's a great idea. I just looked them up and they cost some EUR 60 + delivery (left EUR 27, Part number: 132800319, right EUR 33, Part number: 430340050). Maybe I could mount the controller to the handle bar if there is enough space to attach the RAM Mount to the right side of the bar (I have kept it on the left side and there's not enough space to have them both there) and get those clamps. An order for the Highsider bar ends is now placed.
Thank Spaghetti Monster my wife does never go to the garage nor now how much all this madness costs  :008:
