Hi all

I want to change the grips on my bobber 2018 but at the same time I want to change the mirrors to a bar end mirrors.

Any recommendations

Also is changing to bar end mirrors a good idea? Or it will kill the classic shape of the bike.

I want to stick to black color for both the grips and the mirrors

Any input , photos and recommendations will be appreciated

Thanks:)

I put the grips off the bobber on my 60 and BikeMaster bar end mirrors on it. If I had to do it all over, putting the bar end mirrors on would have been
the very first change made along with the Vance & Hines grenades.

Those bars should have the bunge in the bar ends if you specified Bobber when ordered from FMB. Why don’t you use stock grips and mirrors?

2018 bobbers come with bar end mirrors from factory . If yours was sold with a different set up ,Indian bar end mirrors could be easily added . I have a set of Indian bar end mirrors that I removed to do my custom build. First Pic below ( make an offer)
Second pic shows Rizoma bar end mirrors and turn signals along with brass balls grips . Bar end mirrors Including Indians can be swapped and mounted above the grips or below

(Edit ) I just noticed your post about having ape hangers but a threaded insert can be added to your bars that would be compatible with the Indian bar end mirrors

I don’t see Indian bikes listed on Rizoma’s website.

I think the op may have inserts for bar end mirrors already and doesn’t realize it. If the bike was bought used the prior owner may have used regular type grips when the bars were installed. FMB bars come with the insert in them when ordered for a Bobber.

@amar Yes original grips, although I've since put some Trip Machine leather wraps on, which I definitely recommend

If they don't have the insert, the ones from Rizoma have them included in the bar end adapters. I ordered the bars without the bung on mine for that reason.

Hi Daveholl,
i want to order the same mirrors you have (Rizoma Reverse Retro Bar End Mirror) I do not want to install the bar end turn signals, do I need an adapter for the mirrors? I was with RivZilla today on the phone and they could not tell me if I need the adaptor or not.
thanks for help

Yes you will need an adapter . The first link shows the mirrors and at the bottom of the same page you have options for adapters . I have links for two options
Rizoma Reverse Retro Universal Mirror (BS070)

Rizoma Universal Standard Bar Ends (MA534)

"B-PRO" Bar Mount Adapter Bar End with Cap (MA433)
