Mirror vibrations and blurring

Post by ELEVENS » Mon Jun 04, 2018 11:31 pm

Howdy folks. I'm enjoying my '17 GT with the minor exception of the mirrors. In the event others might have this issue, here's what worked for me:

I purchased EVO Performance bar-ends and added 1/2" brass to the existing weights with 1/4"-20 threaded studs. The weight went from the stock mass of 220 grams to now 424 grams.Two pounds is a lot of weight on the front end, but it doesn't seem to hamper 2nd gear power wheelies :twisted: It really helped with the mirrors. One other thing I changed was move the handlebar forward 1 setting from how it was delivered.

I hope this helps somebody. I stumbled on this forum looking for a solution and got some good ideas to get me going.

LET'S RIDE!

I just hold the mirror for a sec if I think a cop is behind me. I'm impressed with your solution though!
