Looking for Bar end mirrors for 2010s

Has anyone ever seen bar-end mirrors for the 2010s?
If you know of some, would you share a link?
thanks!

Havnt heard of any

I dont know for sure but I think most bar end mirrors actually insert into the end of the bar and this seems impossible on a 2008 tru 2011 because of the Throttle By Wire. But I sure am no expert. Just my 2cents

Never seen 'em, and I have looked and thought of ways to make some. It would only be possible on the left hand side though, the TBW setup can't be worked around anyway that I see. It could be done, but it would twist with the throttle.

Check your state laws. Kansas only requires 1 mirror (on the left hand side). Most states used to be the same, but some have changed and require 2. For highway riding, there is no need for 2 mirrors. The only time you miss it, is in town when there are a lot of cages around.

I definitely want black mirrors, and something that doesnt stand so tall.

Thats a pretty good idea! We had a discussion a while ago about fairing mounted mirrors, but none of us ever did it.

They work good there, they are in your line of sight and surprisingly they seem to help manage the airflow around the windshiel
