Has anyone found a fix or a remedy for the amount of vibration that is shown in the mirrors? It really distorts the reflected image when within a certain RPM range.

Legally required unless i have the bar end mirrors, which I am not sure about.

They are already on rubber that better than the K46 was. The stay is bolted to the frame. The engine vibrates really bad. No way to help this mirror issue except to remove them and worry about what is behind you. At least at a blur you know something is there.

Any time I want to see what's behind me through the mirrors I pull the clutch in. Other then that I just see blurry objects from them. Pipes installed heavy bar ends. He may chime in.

It's not a 4K image in he mirrors. Just helps indicate a blob behind you...lol. I can never tell if its a cop or not. Not much you can do.

I wonder if i swap the mirrors for non turn signal mirrors if it will make a difference. I always wanted to get the BMW badge turn signals...

If you get bar end mirrors, shouldnt they vibrate just as much as the mirrors? Or not really because they are mounted elsewhere

Bike vibrates a bunch. Mirrors buzz. Not sure if it’s the actual mirror itself but that motor doesn’t help any. I was gonna try to put a little bit of rubber between the mirror and the front fairing( I know it has some already under the faring but worth a try. It would go mirror, rubber, faring, rubber ) but never got around to it. Wonder if a earlier year rr mirror would fit. Not sure how the spacing is. Would be cool if someone could try it out and see if the mirrors are better or the same vision wise. I’m not sure if my heavy bar ends helped any. It might have but if so it still didn’t fix the problem completely for sure
