Lightbulb Bar end Mirrors

Hi,

My Daytona 675 came with stokers that are all but useless on the street. I bought a set of bar ends, they look fairly decent, even though I dislike bar ends, they sure provide a lot better view IMHO.
Anyway, when I took of the bar end and pulled out this big heavy brass solid tube from inside, (feels a lot heavier than the whole mirror assy) I am afraid that sticking fairly lightweight mirrors will mess with vibration and general feel of the bike.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
Thanks

I've asked the same question and theres really nothing you can do. They dont really make little weights you can put in there to go along with the mirror mounts. It is what it is. If the vibration is a problem for you then just dont use bar end mirrors. I use a mirror on my left bar but none on my right so theres less vibration in the throttle bar because the weight is still inside

Rhino Moto makes threaded and weighted bar ends. I had them on my old FZ6. They screw into the stock bar and have the same factory weight, if not more. They make them with or without spaces for clamp on mirrors like CRG.

Based on looking at the pics I am confused how this product works. You say it "screws into" the bar... but the picture sure doesn't look like it does. You don't happen to have any install pics do you?

Sorry, yamaha uses threaded handlebars for their weights. So on my old bike, these were threaded and they screwed directly into the handlebar end itself. This is them.


The ones I linked too will use the screw that holds the factory end cap on I believe.
