Bruatle 1090 MIRRORS

I love this Bike, but this MIRROR VIBRATION is driving up the friggen wall.

I have taken it to 2 dealers and neither could fix it. Have a couple rubbler hoses cut in half to help, but they move around and don't work.

Anyone find a sure fix for this. It's seriously annoying. I'd change ther mirrors altogher but they have the turn signals incorporated in them, an it's too much of a hassle.

Is the problem:
1. the mirrors vibrate excessively while riding making objects in the mirror fuzzy, or

2. the mirrors stalks vibrate and shift the glass changing the alignment?

Or something else?

They buzz within their plastic housing as RPM's rise. The image is still clear, or clear enough, but the noise is like fingers on a chalkboard annoying. The tolerance between the mirror and plastic surrounding is too tight. It's like a swarm of bees going off as I accelerate.

thks for reply.

Question Same problem

Hi mate, got the same problem, thought I could just ignore it but it gets more annoying each time I ride cos I'm listening for it now. I have tried removing the mirror stalks and putting rubber between the the stalk and the bar, it doesn't help so the only cure I can come up with is to remove the mirror glass and file it down but I don't know how to get the glass out.

take the bar ends off and squeeze as much memory foam down the bars as possible , also stick 2 1" wide double thickness of black no. plate mount double sided between the mirror and the houseing were you think its most lickely to vibrate.

I did both of these at the same time so not sure which was the solution but mine do not buzz or blur any more.

Hope this helps .

Steve

Cool will try. I was going to try the file down glass trick. Think I'll do both. Feels like I'm driving an egg beater sometimes. Other than that! I have no complaints!

I don't think there is much you can do. I have never been on a bike that had functional mirrors that made me comfortable. Nothing can replace a glance over the shoulder in my opinion. Sounds like Steve has it figured out. I will attempt on my 1078 as well. WHO uses mirrors anyway??? jk

Lose the stocks, get yourself a pair of CRG lanesplitters. rock solid and you can actually see with them. Not to mention they look way cool.
