I use the RhinoMoto Ninja 650 bar ends with mirror adapters because they just bolt into the bar weights like the OEM Z650 ones.

I take it these are the clamp on style? If they are and the clamps are 22mm, use these bar ends/mirror adapters.


Thanks FknLeon.
I bought the bike used with less than 200 miles on it, but the previous owner has replaced the bar ends. I pulled them off & realized exactly what you said about the weights. Not sure how far in they'll go & didn't know how to 'attach' them to the expansion clamp of the new mirrors. I'll look into these You suggested. Do you know the approximate diameter and width of the grooves?
