    Mirror vibration

    I did a couple of searches but didn't find any solutions...

    I'm really happy with my new Multistrada 950S. I've owned it about a month and done about 1200 miles. One niggle I have is the amount of vibration in the rear view mirrors, particularly the right hand one.

    Anyone found any good solutions for this? Change the bar-end weights?

    I would check to make sure mirror is fully seated.  950s here and mirrors are clear.

    Well, I've checked and checked and I'm convinced the mirrors are correctly installed. Also, I've seen a few reports of mirror vibration on the 950, so I guess I'm not alone.

    Perhaps it is a combination of poor UK road surfaces and specific engine speeds, but it really is quite noticeable on my bike - especially when I compare it to my BMW, which - it has to be said - is rock solid.

    In the scheme of things, it's a small annoyance rather than anything major, but it is something I'd like to fix if possible.

    I have had a 950 since 2017 and also have the mirror vibration but have got used to it. Definitely worse than some other bikes I have owned in the past. It was mentioned by others on this forum in the early days so you are not alone

    Yes, thanks. I reckon I will get used to it. I have not ridden a bike that suffered from this recently so it seems a bit unusual. Also doesn't sound as if there's any simple cure.

    Be sure the glass has not come loose in the housing.  This can occur if they are bumped hard enough.

    I have an exact same issue - right hand side only. I use the left one most of the time  :016: if I wish to check who is behind. And a quick prayer when on motorway, cos' I can't see much from the right hand one (certain revs only)...

    Mine too, not bad just enough that looks blurry.

    Was considering putting some damping material on the back of the glass but haven't pulled them off too see if that's possible.
