i've got a 2003 cbr600rr and just recently had my left side bar end vibrate off i guess, noticed one day getting off the highway that it was missing. so now i need some new wons and was wondering what size bar ends i would need 50mm, 25mm or any other spec i must take into consideration before purchasing these, thanks..

Are you dead set on aftermarket bar-ends? The stock ones are about $20 each at the dealer. They're also used as bar-end weights to dampen vibrations. Mine did the same thing. I just bought a new one and used Indian head gasket as loctite to keep them from falling off again.

I want some OEM ones again, i got the lockhart phillips carbons and i liked the way they looked, but I noticed that the bars did vibrate a little more then usual.

So i would go with the OEM's !

I got the LP billet bar ends.. did a long group ride.. Highway and twisties... The stock bar ends went back on as soon as I got home...

I ride daily.. didn't notice it too much.. but after about the 100 mile mark I had already made up my mind.

Stick with the Stocks.. IMO

I have some aftermarket ones I picked up on ebay.



Picture is abit blurry but they are pretty wicked. Engraved RR on the tips.

My bar ends always look uneven, almost like they dont fit perfectly. And they can be rotated all the way around even though there is a groove on each tip...

They're made to do that. Just make sure you have some kind of loc-tite on the philips head bolts. They rotate with the inner weight.

I installed my stock ones today and rode most of the afternoon to see if I could notice a difference, and I didn't notice at all. I threw my other RR engraved aftermarket ones on and if anything they are heavier then the stock ones.. But I didn't notice a difference honestly.
