ok so i recently bought some federal bar ends & basically they are shite. they havent even lasted a week and both of the outer bits have ripped off, i need some new bar ends and a couple of my friends ride odyssey par ends and there what im thinking of getting, could you all let me know what bar ends your running & how there holding up?! and if not, what bar ends youve had in the past that have held up good, im not fussed on metal bar ends but if i get enough reasoning too from you guys id be more than happy to spend the extra bit of money for them but are they worth it too? thanks for any feedback in advance! smile

Most plastic bar end aren't up to much, the only good ones I have come across are odyssey par ends and eclat cortexes. I hate metal bar ends, but thats my opinion. They can get really sharp over time and end up causing more damage than an open bar, and they hurt when you smack your hand or knee on them more.

Metal just defeat the purpose of a barend imo, get odyssey par ends and come out and ride

no they dont the purpose of a barend is so your bars arent a human cookie cutter when you eat shit and land on them

i think anything nylon is good.
i got some nylon ODI ones and they are durable but if you fall and your bars land on you they are soft enough to where they wont puncture you lol

mine last for a couple months, it really depends on how much your bike falls on the bars/ how much you put the bike down.

yes just get metals, but i dont recommend the kink lightest, i had them and ya they were fine, but the little grub screws are annoying and can fall out causing loss of bar end ( what happened to me)

i hated the kink lightest they fell out soo much. i got animal bar ends now. they come loose every couple of days tho..

Odi nylon bar ends are rad.

odyssey par ends are the best imo, i got odyssey griswald grips and they came with the old shitty ones then i got chase hawks and they came with the par ends, best bar ends ever only trouble ive had with them is when im loosing my bar ends to take my grips off if im changing bars or something the little screw falls out, but just screw it back in, they are tough as hell too
