Bar Ends / Sliders for Hyperstrada

I recently bought the Motovation 821 protection / slider kit - but am also concerned with bar ends. Does anyone make a specific setup for the hyperstrada - concerned that the handguards would not take any real slow fall.

There are a few threads here about it, but it seems like speedymoto, motovation, Rizoma, and an ebay seller called espritmotorcycle have the current options with the first two seeming to be the most popular around this forum. I'm either going to go with esprit or motovation or a mix.

I ended up going with Cycra aluminum hand guards and covers for them. The only downside….no blinkers yet. I bought some but just haven't decided on where to install them. I don't want to have a "pretty Italian" motorcycle with some cheesy sport bike blinkers bolted on somewhere. Haha

The cheapo bar ends on fleabay mount with rubber plugs, that is not acceptable to me. The 'premium' manufacturers don't seem to offer them for the 821. You want them to be made from HDPE as it is slippery and won't dig in like metal ones will. And I didn't want them to stick out too much.

I could make some more...what would you think is a fair price? They use the stock 'split sleeve' fastening, and only replace the little metal spacer.
