Actually pretty nice for eBay cheapos.. I'll see how it rides with lack of bar end weights, I'm happy with look though.
Ride safe

I've had a version of those on many bikes, from the expensive CRG to the cheapo eBay, they have always been fine. I'm waiting for a folding version supposed to be coming tomorrow to put on the gsx.
I have a set exactly like yours on my 2015 V max and they are holding up fine.
They are good when I am counting ounces trying to lighten up a bike in every affordable way, they are usually good for a pound or more.
I should add that sometimes they actually improve visibility

Looks good, I went the more expensive route with the CRG lane splitters but I would be hard pressed to tell them apart from yours.

Thanks.. was unsure on form or function so figured I would go cheap see how they do and see how I like them..
Wife would kick me in balls if I spent much more after all the bits I have done recently lol.. I am currently pushing for a SM or Enduro so going easy lol
Cheers

I did the same except with the folding version of the cheap ones. I had to replace two of the screws as they weren't long enough and were pulling out. Fine now though and I don't really notice the difference with out the bar end weights.

I found the view is far better than the standard ones. I'm just not sure if I'm sold on the round shape or of i go something a bit more oval.

Yes , I am getting used to the look, not sure if I'll rotate under the bar or keep as is but can say the function as in view is way better then anything else I tried, zero vibration on image and clear sight, no worries with out the bar weights either... Best 11 quid spent so far... 🙂

Do you have to use adapters 7/8 to fit these as well as the CRG?
