Here's my initial mods to this lovely machine. The exhaust and clutch levers are ones I took off of my FZ07 before I sold it to make room for this one. They fit right up with no issues. Gilles Tooling lever (expensive but awesome) & the exhaust is a Chinese knockoff from Ebay. Looks & sounds great! The tail light is a Blaster X & I love it. Stock wiring harness so no cutting or splicing. It looks & operates beautifully. The license plate brackets I made myself utilizing the brake reservoir bolt on one side and the same one on the other side that appears to do absolutely nothing, but it does now!! I also relocated the brake reservoir temp until I get the official eliminator for it. I just shorted the hose and zip tied it in place for now. It works. The bar end mirrors I've used on all my bikes and they are great. You can actually see behind you and not just your elbows!!

And the levers are adjustable! I've been trying to find some adjustable ones that work with this bike. Thanks for sharing.
Not only are they adjustable but they are super adjustable!! I dislike cable clutches because I like my clutch to grab pretty quick with the lever release & I can never find levers that allow that without having to adjust it via the cable & watch the lever flop around. These do & they feel so fantastic. By far the best lever(s) I've ever had, no question.

It's
Could you name or share a link to the adjustable lever that you used?
Gilles Tooling. I bought the 2 levers seperately for the FZ07 & they were $180ish per lever. I don't remember where I bought 'em from but they were listed on Yamaha's site for FZ07 accessories. Expensive but absolutely awesome.

You are correct. The sweet Brembo master cylinder on the R7 does not allow for the sweet lever on the brake side, which is a shame. I'm patiently waiting for a nice brake lever.
Brembo makes adjustable levers for clutch and brake side that work on the R7. If you need a link let me know.....just Google Brembo RCS levers

Not absolutely perfect, but fit the slots fine and no pressure points on the fairing and no fitment issues when bolting them down. Better than leaving them open imo

The factory clip-ons have an insert on them, hard rubber with a M5(?) threaded insert. That is what the factory bar end weight screws into. There are setups to keep the weights (or a weight) in place while adding the mount for a mirror, I don't have info on those but I think use of that has been posted to the forum. If I can get a pic of the bar end showing the threaded insert I will.

I’ve seen the inside of the bars which is why I’m struggling to find the proper adapter to hook up the mirror crg hindsight mirror to be exact

Oh, I think you are you talking about a spool you attach the mirror to? A 7/8" or so spool that you can bolt on? I think I see, as they normally come with an internal mounting part attached. I 3D printed mine. Hmmmm, where to get that......
