    Has anyone fitted these in the hope they would reduce/eliminate the vibration in the mirrors, and they have either worked, or not worked? Considering giving them a go, but at £45 I'd rather have some confidence that they might work  :169:
    TIA

    Snap I fitted them to my M-sport form day two.
    After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

    Fitted to my Gen 2 and made little or no difference. FYI weighed them and only 30g heavier than standard per side.

    I would take your bike to the dealer and complain. They need to ensure that the torques on the various bolts and your mirrors are correct. My bike had a minor vibration at the grips between 5500 and 6000 RPM. I fitted the Evotech bar and and cont really notice it anymore. Your problem seems more serious and your bike should not do that

    I have the mirror shake in the right mirror. I tried wrapping lead around the mirror stem. Not ideal but it and it certainly helped.
