I just got a pair of napoleon bar end mirrors to put in my rizoma clip ons. The rubber expander and nut is too big to fit in the end of the bar. I'm thinking I may either drill out the end of the bars, or possible modify the expander and nut to fit. I'm leaning toward drilling out the end of the bar since I feel like the mirrors may spin in the bars if I cut too much off of the expander and go past the point at which the little notch is in the expander. Is there some kind of adapter I can purchase? Any better ideas?

Drilling out your bars can be dangerous. Instead go out and buy some radiator hose that is slightly smaller than the rubber already on the mirrors. Then get a bolt with out the rim. Thead the bolt down until it gets fairly tight. From what I hear and I have never done this myself is that this will let you put the mirror in and the bolt will work because it has already started to bite into the rubber.
