Left mirror vibration
« on: September 14, 2015, 02:28:39 AM »
Along with other owners I have noticed that the left mirror vibrates more than the right. At certain RPM's the left mirror is completely useless. After wondering about why this is I determined that it is due to not having a hydraulic clutch.

What?? Huh? How could that be?  The vibrations on the right mirror are mitigated by the brake lever assembly but the left mirror is connected directly to the handlebar. Without the additional mass to absorb some of the vibration they make it all the way to the mirror.

Another reason the XR should have come with a hydraulic clutch. I really like having two usable mirrors.

Hell, if they'd give me a hydraulic clutch I wouldn't even care if the mirror continued to vibrate!!   :008:
Many people ride.....but for a select group of people it's more than a ride....it's one of life's great passions.

Opening an old debate between cable and hydro clutch.  It has been done on a lot of forums,  I know there was a big following on the crossrunner to get a cable clutch back most were stating reliability ease to fix and feel for the purists.  The + camp were ease of use light feeling ect.
