I had a minor tip over which resulted in my right mirror taking the fall. My T-Rex sliders and the mirrors prevented any other damage (except for the mirror and my ego), and now the mirror is hanging by the cable. I'm considering either getting an OEM right mirror, if I can find one ASAP, or else am open to suggestions for bar ends and new indicators. Any suggestions. The NRC indicators is what google sends me to, but I can see that consensus here is not to get it.

TL;DR: Need new rear view mirrors (bar ends are fine), and new indicators.

My 2 cents: NRC block-offs' build quality is fine, brightness is equivalent to OEM (but a lot smaller in size), has really long wire leads, has the tiny hex bolts. The NRC block-offs can be seen from behind somewhat.

I have a single CRG Arrow mirror on my left handlebar and I can see the lane behind me, half a lane to the left, and half a lane to the right, starting about 5 feet behind passenger seat. I can see my rear tire if I lean up. Would recommend them with Kyle Racing Bar Ends made for them.

Sorry to hear about your incident... I would agree re the NRC and some CRG, or Rizoma even, bar end mirrors.

However, if you are set on having a stock look, but with an improvement, check out Moto-science. A pair of these will cost the same as one side of the OEM retail.

How easy is the install for someone not mechanically-inclined? I do want both mirrors (they've been pretty useful for me atleast). One concern I've heard is that the CRG mirrors interfere with the stock levers.

The block-offs are easy, worst thing is just tucking the excessively long and stiff wires into the area between the front end frame and fairings.

Bar end mirrors are a no brainer, just need that huge allen wrench. If you use the supplied bar end adapter you'll get interference issues. If you use Kyle Racing bar ends made for CRG Arrow mirrors, no problems. See attached photos.

Be careful here as the 1199 / 899 mirrors are longer than the 1299 / 959

do the bar end mirrors go blurred at speed in the same way as the standard ones do
The CRG Arrow I have is solid. The bar ends are heavy and do a good job dampening out vibrations. I haven't noticed any rev ranges that cause resonance-amplified vibrations in the mirror either.

The pix show up on tapatalk - not on the forum itself though.

I really like the idea of the bar ends. However, right now I'm sticking to OEM-like replicas, that I found at https://www.btosports.com/p/bikemaster-o-e-m-replacement-mirrors-ducati

The CRG mirrors are by far the best product that I have bought for my Ducati 959. They give phenominal visibility, don't have the vibration issue, have a ton of adjustment and just clearly made with great quality. the left mirror will work with the stock bar ends without conflicting with the lever. If I were to do it over again, I would get the CRG mirrors and either the rhino-moto (what I do have now) or the Kyle racing bar ends but would skip on the NRG block-offs/ blinkers and just get straight block offs for less than half the cost. I found the factory mirrors to be about worthless... can't see much but my elbows and they vibrate so bad at speed that they are just worthless.

Just my $0.02.

I'm a big fan of the front view with the mirror stalks. I've wasn't a fan of the handlebar mirrors, but the look is now growing on me. For now, I'm just going to get a OEM replacement for the right, as I'm a few weeks away from storage, and then check out all these bar end options through winter. CRG with the kyle racing bar ends seems to be the best suggestions I've gotten so far.

Maybe want to get the CRG mirrors, how about riding in traffic in between cars ? I think the lanes are smaller in Belgium...

Second the recommendation on Moto - science mirrors. They offer several options. I went with the longest arm available that was originally designed for the 1199, but was easily fitted to the proper base for the 959. Moto - science came up with the idea after I spoke with them about options to improve the field of view to include something behind my shoulders.

Bought CRG mirrors/Kyle Bar ends, need help w install...

I can't find the exact wrench to fit the Kyle Racing Bar ends for the CRG arrow mirrors. The T60 is too small and the hex keys are not a perfect fit. Can someone tell me the correct wrench for the stock bar ends AND the Kyle Racing Bar ends? Thank you SO much.

Bar ends hex size is a 6 point 12mm allen. OEM and Kyle Racing bar ends are the same size.
