Hi guys,

My bike's right side mirror vibrates when bike is stationary. Just wanted to see if there's something wrong with mine or if its normal. All the screws and bolts seems to be tight so it would be nice to see if its a common thing and I'm being fussy.

Cheers,
H.

Mine did too! Got rid of it with some block-offs! Looks better without it anyways plus I so use to not having the OEM mirrors! Gets in my way!

No doubt it's the engine , causing the vibration , my honda RR mirrors used to do it.
It's the nature of the engine , whether petrol , diesel 4 stroke 2 stroke , twin etc they all cause vibration of some sort

Mine did as well. Got rid of them and went with bar end mirrors. More visibility IMO. Could really only see my shoulders with the stock ones.

Yet another reason to wait for 2nd gen...it keeps on coming and coming all those "minor" issues that so many of you are willing to swallow, woof woof!

Pretty sure that none of you fanboys would accept any of these on your car, mystery...

Nearly all large capacity v-twins will do this and you will quite possibly also find missing fairing screws over time plus other random one's disappearing.
Even my RSV4 vibrates..........all due to the weird firing order of the pistons.

Got out on mine today, not something I'd noticed until it was brought up in this thread!!! Slight vibration at standstill, nothing that really bothers me, it's a thumping v twin so to be expected....

Vibrations are to be expected but if the vibration is strong then something is wrong somewhere. Other than that,you could possibly go with two solutions if the vibrations annoy you:

1. Don't use side mirrors altogether (Not recommended if you're daily commuting / street riding)
2. Use bar end mirrors which has very minute to no noticeable vibrations at all
