Deleting mirror mounts

Along with replacements for the fender reflector bolts I received new clamps for both clutch and master cylinder.
Got the bulk of the mirror ?bung? cut off. Will check the look with them flat tomorrow, might need to be rounded.

Used a 3" I think cut off wheel for the top most part then a Dremel to get the remainder. A bench grinder to finish.

So here's what it looks like with just the threaded portion chopped flat. To do it again I'd have left a bit of that threaded part to help blend it in since the domed area is a bit higher on the perch. I did some shaping since these pics and will post those once I'm happy -ish.
It's sprayed with primer if you're wondering. Anyone know what the factory finish is? Paint, powder coat, anodized?

There has to be another half clamp we could buy that doesn't have the mirror bung. Just need to find a bike that doesn't have mirror mounted to the handlebars? It wouldn't even have to be a suzuki necessarily.

This is too expensive, but something like this:

LC Fabrications Mirror Delete Lever Clamp Triumph Thruxton Bonneville T100 Black | eBay

Yep, makes more sense to buy these. I think Rizoma has such clamps too.

Not too expensive, wish I'd seen those before diving into this. You'd think I would have since I did search clamps on ebay. Will soldier on though and I'm sure I'll be the only one who will notice they aren't perfect.
Edit: did just notice that the brake clamp is 19.6mm wide and clutch 21.65mm. Slight difference I know but worth note.
