Can’t you just remove the expander nut from the mirror and bolt it directly to that threaded part?July 16, 2020 at 11:01 pm #30667
@maxkool that could be possible.
However, i would have to cut a bit off of the “bar adapter uni cap” (which is aluminum) :/
i’d prefer the insert removal option since i might go for some bar end blinkers in the future.July 16, 2020 at 11:02 pm #30668
just noticed that i linked the wrong bar adapter in my initial post 😀
here’s the right one:
“bar adapter uni cap”

@wenny so half of the adapter is integrated with the mirror leg? that sucks.
In that case I’d do my best to get that “thing” out.July 16, 2020 at 11:11 pm #30670
@maxkool if i cut off the black aluminum part of it that i marked in ‘red’ it would probably work out to just thread the remaining thing in without the expander:
that would be my only last option if the ‘removal’ isn’t going to happen though.July 17, 2020 at 5:20 pm #30681
I made a post last night (not showing and “awaiting moderation”?) about some separate bar ends from Rhino Moto that are designed for the RC390, but appear to just have the threaded insert that should work with the 401s that also have the non-removable insert. I’ll probably order a set if I decide to go with the CRG lanesplitter mirrors.
I’ll add the link in the next post in case that’s what is causing it to be hidden.

Good timing on this thread. I noticed the same thing on my 2020 401. That threaded insert is NOT coming out. I’m planning on some CRG lane splitters, and using this bar end adapter for the KTM RC390 which appears like it’ll work for the threaded inserts with their bolt (or reusing our factor bolt).October 24, 2020 at 4:15 pm #32749asutulaParticipant
Hey @Dan00Hawk did those 390 Duke/RC390 Mirror Mounts end up working for you? Considering going this route as well.October 24, 2020 at 10:07 pm #32754
Yes they certainly did!

Were you ever able to get the motogadget mirrors on?
