I scratched mine a little when I dropped the standing bike, and noticed it also scratched the brake lever (albeit minimally), so I looked for a better looking replacement as well as something marginally longer for better protection of the brake lever.

These on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09W5F6SSP?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details fit perfectly aka LTYNND for Yamaha Nmax Motorcycle Bar End Handlebar Extension Balance Plug M6 NMAX, use the original screw. They also are a bit longer and hence may add a little extra protection (but not enough extra width to make a difference if you judiciously lane split), and look better IMO. Come in different colors, too.

IMPORTANT: you'll need a small spacer in the right one, otherwise it locks the throttle.

The originals are silly expensive if you try to score them, it's just a darn piece of plastic...

The stock ones are plastic? My stock bar ends are solid metal and chromed.

Easyparts.nl has the chrome ones in stock. See link

Mine certainly were plastic. USA parts lottery. And they are $12 without shipping to replace each in scooterwest...

I think it looks way better now and worth the $40 price tag for me. And I like the extra 5mm or so of extra protection on top.


Original bar ends.
