Shot peened? Not only does it give a desirable finish, it also improves tension/compression strength of a material

The OEM mirrors are off and I've put black blanking plugs in.

The bar ends are solid. It's an H6 hex nut. I've got one but it's old and there's a bit of play in it. I don't want to risk rounding the hole out so I've ordered a new one.

Perkles managed to get the bar ends off the Brutale. They used so much locktite it's ridiculous.

The bar ends are threaded and screw straight into the handlebars. The Rizoma bar ends are the expanding bolt type. I've put them on and fixed the mirrors to them but I'm not 100% comfortable using an expanding bolt bar end in a threaded handlebar.

R&G do bar ends that screw in. They also have enough space on them to fix the mirrors on so I've ordered a pair.

The OEM bar ends are too narrow and are slightly rounded, so the Rizoma mirrors don't sit on them very well.

My Evotech radiator and oil cooler guard are in the post so I should get them this week.

The evotech guards have arrived but they've been damaged at some point. The oil guard holding lug is bent round almost 360 degrees.

I've fired them an email.
