had a few of these chinese rizomas on other bikes, never liked the glass quality or the strength of the arm. Cracked a few in my day.

Just picked up a 2017 s1kr yesterday, so i feel the least i can do for her is put on rizomas haha.

I had a set on my Ninja 1000 for two years and a set on my S1000R for two years now.  I've only had a problem with one of them. They were $16 for the set of two so I bought two sets so I have spares.

Rhinomoto bar ends on mine.  :028: :028:

Same here - Rhino Moto bar ends, with one bar end mirror. Rhino has 2nd type of bar end that will accept wide variety of handlebar-clamp mirror, so I use one of those types for single mirror, and regular bar end on other side. My state requires only single mirror. These Rhino Moto bar ends have similar mass as OE, so no difference in vibration (certainly not worse) than OE steup.

very nice indeed. i was hoping for the ultimate rizoma grooved  concept. but i suppose this works  just as good as the crg/rhino method.

Didn't you all have vibration problem when you changed the stock barends with the lighter mirrors?

i think aftermarket mirrors, even the chinese ones outweigh stock bar ends..so this wouldnt be an issue as they would technically dampen the vibs even more.

certainly if you get a crg or rima, proper mirror. much heavier than the chinese ones.

fitted Victory mirrors on mine. Used the OEM  bar ends, had a machinist lathe away the inside of the bar end just enough to clamp the mirror on... easy. Can`t say I notice any problem with vibration.

No increase in vibes that I can detect.

Old thread but will try anyway.
What mirrors are those?
I got these:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00LR08MS4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Seem to be great quality, and just about 3mm smaller than rizoma retro on height and width.

Yours look bigger, what brand are those? Look great!
