Any 1290 owners running bar end mirrors with heated grips?

Postby RyanD » Tue Apr 25, 2017 5:51 pm

I picked up a set of CRG Arrow Bar ends a few months ago. They look super clean, no vibes at higher revs, and work better than the stock mirrors.

This cold, wet Pacific Northwest winter prompted me to buy a set of the powerparts heated grips. I installed 'em, but now I can't fit my left mirror back on. On the right I made room for the bar end by moving the throttle control assembly a few cm inwards. On the left, however, there's a little pre-drilled hole where the left grip secures to underside of the bar, which holds the grip in place along with the bar end. This doesn't leave enough space on the outer portion of the bar to secure the mirror and bar end. Has anyone successfully fitted bar ends along with the PP heated grips? If so, what did you do? Right now I'm just using 1 mirror on the right side, but that's not ideal for me.

I've got bar-ends and PP heated's but my mirrors are the type that slip into the end of the bar, replacing the original weights.
You could drill & tap a new hole in the bar to move the grip in but that's a bit of a pain. Perhaps there's an alternate bar-end weight that would accept the CRG's?

I had a pair of these

on my Ducati which I swapped with the KTM bar ends. They have a removable "accent ring" which when removed accommodated a set of CRGs well.
