Anyone else's mirrors vibrate when the engine is revving ≥5,000 RPM? I find it kinda hard to see what's behind me when the image is all fuzzy.

I experience the same thing. It doesn't bother me much though.

That is why i am getting rid of it. I just ordered the block off plate and bar end mirror. I will see how that will work. Plus i think it looks better without the mirrors. I let you know how it is once i get them put on.

Think I'll stick with stock mirrors. Those bar end mirrors look like they'd make your bike wider anyway. How am I supposed to split lanes with those?

Don't really like them but they don't look to bad but I don't really notice any vibration in mine thats bad enough to bug me.

mine do that too and they also make a vibrating sound around 7000 but they're aftermarket so i dont care. i just have them because you need them to be legal and if i get pulled over why give the cop another reason to give u a ticket?

As long as you have one, it is okay. That is why people use bar end mirror.

Its acutally better then the stock mirrors. The stock mirrors hang further out.

As for the bar end, I like the idea but after a couple months I wanted to switch back just because of better visibility.

Be careful when using the adapter to go into the handle bar. I lowsided at 5mph and then mirror pushed the threads in on the handle bar so I had to buy new clip on. I was trying to put the bar end slider on and it stripped. I wont be using bar end mirrors anymore.

I don't run mirrors (persay) anymore... because they annoyed me. I just have some little one's mounted up for legality's sakes. and some blockoffs... I turn my head and look EVERY time anyhow... so meh... to each his own.

Funny, My left one vibrates a bit at idle, but the right doesnt.Neither vibrate to a discernible point at speed!
