I bought the same bar end mirrors and found them too wide for lane splitting. So got rid of them and changed to the Ken Sean mirrors along with mirror stem risers -- the view is now perfect, wide and big, no vibration and works great without the extended width of handlebars

My mirrors are gone too but for another more of less minor reason... I had one left and the other in two pieces. :-[ Replaced them by other mirrors which can be adjusted at the mirror itself (, same price/quality. Fitted but did not testride yet.

I will take better pictures and soon come with a summary of the 'remods' (improved mods) I did lately.

Those do look pretty sharp, but is the view much better than the stock mirrors, which let me see my shoulders?

I went with the CRG Lane Splitters, which, although bar-end, don't stick out so far and easily fold. I've found them very workable in my daily lane splitting. I know if they get through, my side bags will too. And if I miscalculate and tap a car mirror, mine just fold without any damage to either party.

If I'm trying to get through stopped traffic on surface streets, I just fold them both inward and gain a few critical inches.

Expensive, but very well made. Also, I can buy just the glass if I damage one. (DAMHIK!)

@Roan, those mirrors do look good.  Which ones are they?

It's been a while ago. So, here are the improvements over the past months:

Color change by using rubberspray, finish isn't what I expected. Needs a redo. I will go for Motip Dupli color instead of Plasti Dip.

Small budget Puig windscreen mounted to the headlight. Takes away part of the wind pressure, my chest isn't a parachute anymore. Results in a more comfortable ride and minor gain of range.

The improvement of front and rear suspension, the best adjustment until now. Although Brammo used a premium brand shock absobers, the riding comfort was very hard and the front fork had
a small bounding range. Therefore I took the Enertia to a local specialist for service. He changed the oil (left and right struts oil level differed), air chambers increased, better sliding cups and lock rings. Ex works the lower fork cross brase was
was tightened with too much torque. Rear absorber adjusted and rear has risen. The tyre pressure front and rear is now 33 and 39 Psi.
I must say after riding 300 kilometers the suspension has been appreciably improved.

I really like that windshield. Got a link, or did you get it from a shop?
