Vibrating mirrors
 
Hi,

The mirrors on my'12 F658GS Twim vibrate at highway speed so they blur out the view at the back, I can see cars and such but I can't see them clear enough. Is it a known problem with the F800/600GS? Anyway to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

one of the two on my 800 vibrate to the point where it's hard to be much of use. the other doesn't vibrate nearly as much

Thanks for info. I did some some researches and believe that the high speed frequency vibration is inherited in the F650/800 twin engine, the high frequency vibration can also cause hands and fingers going numb after extended high speed riding.

Learn more about my bimmer everyday.

Try heavier bar end weights.

I run 2 sets of bar end weights one inside the bark busters and the other on the outside with extra long bolts. I also use liquid bar snake ( but they do not make that product anymore ) in the bars to dampen the vibrations. My mirrors work great at any speed.
I do it to keep my nerves from tingling (carpel tunnel) or hands from getting numb.

When you say "highway speed" what speed is that? Mine are fine uo to 75 or so. GH

It's about the same for me.
