Got around to getting a set quite cheap and installed them over the weekend as well as Rizoma Bar ends with sliders.

Here they are.

It might be a novice wrench hand question but do you have to bleed the reservoir lines after you install the Rizomas? I'm just wondering if when you replace them air bubbles might end up in the lines.

They look awesome. That's why I'm asking. Thanks

Yes, Oni! That's my plan -- thanks for posting! Look great! Thinking about the Ducati Performance red bar ends, myself.

Those cheap? Where?
Got all of the reservoirs and the 2 brackets for $200 from my local bike shop (Yamaha Dealer) as i have been a customer with them for a long time so they hooked me up.

Great pictures Oni thanks... what size reservoirs did you choose? I notice that Rizoma have three "Next" versions. I'm waiting for my 899 and can't check the specs just yet....

I only got 2 out of the 3. There is a large on which i have for my brake fluid, a middle sized one that is for my clutch and the smallest "NEXT" one is for the rear brake fluid. I didn't like its shape so got the standard circle cylinder that i have on my R1 instead.

If you prefer to keep them the same size i would recommend going with the middle sized ones as they will easily clear the fairing and screen. You will need special brackets for them though so make sure you order them when you buy the reservoirs.
