So, I'd like to get a pair of Barkbusters on my 13 Multi. I am currently using the CRG Arrow mirros and I'd like to keep them. Do you think I can use them together somehow by using the CRG piece as a spacer instead of the Barkbuster bar end?

Or.....?

Thoughts are appreciated!

You can. I have. NO pictures of it, unfortunately.

You will need to snag a pair of the CRG bar-end adapters and bore out the hole big enough to fit the Barkbuster screw. https://smile.amazon.com/CRG-Internal-Mirror-Adapter/dp/B000K7JD92/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1466809530&sr=8-1&keywords=crg+bar+end+adapter

You'll also need to cut off the pointy portion. I used a Dremel too cut it off and a hand drill with a vise to bore out the inner hole diameter.

Ultimately, I didn't keep this set-up. I prefer to OEM mirrors; they're just too damn good.

Where there's a will there's a way.

You will have to use your imagination, but you can make it work. I wound up reversing the bar end weights and needed to add washers for spacers on the clutch side. The brake side was easier. No doubt it's a tight fit, and I found myself occasionally speaking in tongues during the trial and error phase, but it came out good enough for me. Not perfect, but neither am I, so ...

Thanks for posting the
Pics Damascus!! I pulled the stock mirrors and found quite a bit less wind roar without them. Because of that I'll prob keep them off so I'm about to get creative on a bark buster bar end boar out for fit.

> Anytime. Yeah, the CRGs are unreal. They are the single clearest/least vibrating mirrors I've ever owned. One of those products that truly lives up to its name.

> In other news ... recently took a 4 hour or so trip up to Lake Tahoe and road around there for a few days. I didn't buy it for this reason, but that bike always draws a crowd and compliments. Just changed the oil, brake and clutch fluid, and it's running like a top. The love is back. :)

Man is that true how a few hours in the saddle will renew the affair. Great motorcycle. After a new screen and the bar end mirrors it's about as right as it could be.
