Bar Ends for CBR 929

Both of my bar ends came off during my last track day. I can't really explain it. They felt fine before the track day. I really should have used locktite. Anyway, does anyone out there know a good quality bar end that won't fade? I've tried the stock and LP black bar ends and both faded in the sun in less than 2 weeks. Additionally, do they make an aftermarket bar end for 929's that fit in the half circle mark inside the clipons?
Thanks!

I picked up a pair of these for the RC and they fit great. Not as heavy as stock, but wont grip the pavement if you go down.

I got mine from Hudson Valley Motorsports Parts. Walt used to be a member here before he changed bikes.

They're brushed stainless steel and have nice weight to them. I have no vibrations in my bars with them. I recommend them.

Great stuff and to my door in under a week!

Since the review, they have faded a bit, but my bike is in the sun all day long as I ride daily in the summer time.

Since the wreck I have replaced all the gold with silver pieces.

Oh, and yes they are notched to fit the stock Honda groves. And they are wieghted unlike the Lockhart crap.

I'll second that.

They survive crashes well too!

I'll third it. The bar ends need to be heavy to dampen vibrations. Light bar ends = vibration, heavy bar ends = less vibration. These fit into the 929 bar end mounting configuration properly.
