Try contacting http://www.rhinomoto.com/

They have many different bar ends and i am pretty sure that they will have some for this application.

Thanks!  I had stumbled upon that site when I ordered my mirrors, but I misread originally, and thought it was $65 per bar end...  I now have obe of their heavy sets on order, since the local shop wants $175 to turn down the OEM bar ends.

Bought an Abba paddock stand. Used it for the first time today and it worked as well as I had hoped. No problems getting the bike up or down (I know I should be able to use a traditional paddock stand by myself but a bit nervous about dropping it). Will have to see how it stands up to repeated use.

Made lubricating the chain a lot easier and less messy.

Spent a good part of the day on the bike having fun.
I've had the abba superbike stand for years now after my local mechanics recommended them and been rock solid, stood up to regular abuse and so simple to use. Just get the correct fitting kit for each bike.
Great for working on bike as suspension not loaded when on stand. I use a trolley jack under headers to lift front at same time when required as not a fan of their front lift option.

Would you mind if I ask what levers you're using?

The levers are also eBay brand.  Things to note: I had to push out the bushing from the OEM clutch lever, and use it with the eBay clutch lever.  I also had to drill out the OEM plastic jobbie that's attached to the clutch lever, and disengages CC and QS, as the eBay clutch lever screw is not long enough.  Otherwise, they're great.

Plus 1 for the Abba stand, and yeah they're front lift option is rubbish, I also use a jack under the headers. Haven't tried that on this bike yet though.
You got the minerals?

Thanks for that. Can I trouble you for a link?

Does your CC & QS work with the new levers? I wasn't clear from your comment.

Fitted the BMW comfort seat. Had been toying with the idea of getting one but was put off by the colour scheme (cream panel with red pinstripe). I'm pleased that it actually looks far better than I expected - I'm well chuffed with it, as is my arse  :001:

I got a bargain too, paid 134 for it delivered (it's 250 usually in the UK).  This is the link, though it's now gone up to 199:  http://www.bmw-motorrad-store.co.uk/bmw-comfort-seat-for-the-bmw-s1000rr-k46-s1000r-k47-and-hp4-k42.html

 aka_Gilo, that seat looks much better against the white side panels, too.  Bargain price, good job!  :062:
