Just Installed Bar End Mirrors -- GT 1000

Looks great and love the finish. GT 1000 with 1000 Sport Bar Ends. What ya think? Really cleans up the look. Also replaced the mirror mounts with those from the Sport 1000. Welcome comments. Cheers

I like it! An improvement over the stock mirrors. Makes it look like a closer cousin of the Sport.

I like the look of bar end mirrors. I had CRGs on my Bonneville and liked them. How's the field of vision as compared to the stockers? My stockers blur from the engine vibration a little more than I would like. Is the blurring remedied somewhat with the shorter stem bar ends?
Thanks,
Danny

Vision with Bar Ends

Not much worse than the view with stock mirrors. In fact, I see (have seen) little difference. However, in the "looks" department -- a huge improvement. Worth the money to go with the Ducati product. Scott

Actually, A Bit Better Than Stock

Given the soft "rubber/plastic" bar-internal mounting, the view to the rear is a bit better and slightly less vibration. Tested on a two-hour ride with speeds up to 75. Cheers

Looks great - did you notice and difference with the bar end weights off or do the mirrors act as bar end weights?

I saw the picture of the new mirrors and rushed to the dealer to order a set, so my red Gt will look as cool. The goofy stock rabbit ear mirrors just don't look right and I look forward to getting the new ones. Probably take weeks or months to get the order from, I suppose, Italy. Were they difficult to install or pretty straightforward.

Moto Corsa in Portland, OR has two pairs of these mirrors in stock for $149.
[IMG] I use them on my Paul Smart and I am very happy with them. I like them much better than the stock SportClassic mirrors. The part # is a Ducati Performance part # 96621106B.
