They seem to vibrate at different speeds so why not just adjust your speed accordingly  :008:

2 things to try. Firstly, if you wind the stalks all the way down (watchout for that left handed thread) and then loosen them half a turn before tightening the retaining nut, that seemed to change the resonance level for me.

Secondly, if you loosen the engine mounting bolts and then tighten them again in the following order:

Left Hand Side
Tighten the rear cylinder head bolt (1) to 85 Nm.
Tighten the front cylinder head bolt (2) to 100 Nm.

Right Hand Side
Tighten the front cylinder head bolt (3) to 85 Nm.
Tighten the rear cylinder head bolt (4) to 85 Nm.

And then hopefully, Robert will be your mother's brother  :152:

Some have it worse than others, this is an inexpensive cure  https://www.tiger1050.com/index.php/topic,40074.msg442150.html#msg442150
Part numbers earlier in the thread. You will also need an adaptor cos the T has a LH thread on the right mirror. I ended up just using a helicoil cos the adaptor I bought snapped off and had to be drilled out  :012:
Edit: Just seen YD's post - that doesn't work for everyone...

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

.  I'll experiment a bit. If i fill the handle bars with sand  :007:or/and heavy bar end weights might help :084:. The tyre pressure was a bit low when i bought it and i didn't notice any vibration in the mirrors. Ive since pressurized the tyres to 38psi front and back so ill drop a few psi and see if its any better. I notice the stainless steel protectors beside the foot pegs buzz a lot against my ankle
as well but all in all falling in luv with the bike. She might be  keeper :028:

How many miles on the bike? It does seem to lessen as the miles build up.

I had the dealer fit mirrors from the 13 plate model when I purchased my 18 plate as part of the deal

They are shorter but much more substantial and I have no issue with them at all.

Only a little  over 6000 km. Up to 50mph there's no problem   but on the motorways at 70 - 80mph forget it, can't see a thing.

The arms on the newer version mirrors are too thin for their increased length ... just a bad design. Hence my insistence that I had the earlier version  :002:
