Hello, I don’t usually buy cheap Chinese parts off eBay but l thought that surely bar end mirrors can’t be too hard to manufacture. I was wrong. Even though out of the box the quality appears okay these ones as per attached image don’t fit at all. Specifically the nut and plastic part that go inside the bar ends are way to big in diameter. Whoever designed these has NEVER actually tried to fit them to a 790 Duke. Supplied by are your shop-005

That's surprising - they look pretty standard for rubber bung style mounting and the Duke handlebars are nothing out of the ordinary in terms of inside diameter.

Just checking - you did remove the bar ends and long weight inserts? You'll have to lose those to fit these.

Remember - The KTM has alloy bars. The ID of steel bars is substantially bigger.
