I'm looking to replace my stock Bonneville mirrors with bar end mirrors, wonder what you guys think of ones that look like the foldable CRG ones on Ebay for $46 + $8 shipping for a pair of 3" foldable mirrors with bar end adapters? If you go to ebay.com, type in auction numbers 350128024862 and 140282244904. Both sellers have pretty positive feedback on these mirrors.

I have a set that I don't use...the left side came apart during installation due to the plastic mirror retainer being poorly moulded during production & misaligned during assembly. The mirror broke when it hit the floor.

Overall, a good price, but not a good value in my book.

Cheers,

--Rich

The CRG's are costly, but they are worth the money. They are very high quality and sturdy. I've had mine up to 110mph and they don't move a bit. Some of those aftermarket mirrors can't handle speed very well.

Knock offs

I have the CRGs and after two years they have come loose a few times and I have had them apart to flip the arms for various mounting. They still look as good as new. I second the you gets what you pays for. But the knock offs look the part and your wallet sez that's the limit?
I would wonder if the plating on the screws would hold up. But replacements at the hardware store are cheap. My CRGs are fleabay purchases just to save a few bucks. The time spent waiting and bidding was wasted, so I should have bought new.

coincidence. i just bought a set of these by the seller "moto-deluxe" from ebay. they are the ones that flip up. still waiting for them to come in the mail though.

search "moto-deluxe" ...some ppl seem to say they are pretty well made compared to the even cheaper ones, and i remember them saying that they dont really vibrate.

I've heard that those knock offs have a habit of losing the glass. Do a search on here, and you'll find posts of people complaining about glass falling out at highway speeds. Some used adhesives to correct this. napoleons are a good mirror for the $$, although a different look.

I've got both and am satisfied with both. The quality on the cheaper one's isn't as high as the CRG's, but they were half the cost. So far, I haven't had any problems with the cheaper ones.
