Options for mirrors

Greetings!

I’m currently shopping for bar end mirrors. I’ve tried various ones in the past even the circular CRG ones. They all have the problem of moving out of place when I travel over 80mph. I wish I could remove the rear view mirrors completely but they’re something I actually use. So I’m looking for ones that are firm and can stay in place even after heavy acceleration and higher speeds. If you got any suggestions, that would be great and a picture too please!

Thanks!!

I use CRG Arrow clones, $20, good visibility, solid on the freeway and under hard acceleration, better than the Speedmetal CRG clones and Rizoma Reverse Retro clones I've used in the past. Only downsides are they stick out a bit which isn't the best if you lane split but I think you can flip them inward. Also, quality control isn't the best. I returned the first set which fell apart when I tried to adjust the screws. Second set has been solid though. Otherwise, the genuine CRG are $200+ for the set which I'm guessing should be trouble free.

I've had the CNC racing Rocket mirrors on my bike for quite a while and love them. I had the CRG LSs on my last bike and had no complaint with them, other than they need an adapter (or in my case a smaller Renthal bar end) to make them fit.
The CNC Racing Rocket works with the factory bar ends just fine. I like the weight of the factory bar ends and have tried Delrin slider style replacements with poor results (too much vibrations).

Here's a link to a thread where I posted some pictures.
Now that I've had bar ends on the bike, it would be hard to go back. It cleans up the forward field of view and just makes the ride more enjoyable.

If you want them because the stock ones don't provide a proper view, know that you can pull back the rubber boots and twist the mirrors out further. I found the stock mirrors couldn't see behind me properly until I adjusted them that exact way.

Now if you want bar end's because of another reason, then I can't help you there.
