...adjust the airflow so that it vibrates your helmet at the same frequency?
:joke:

My right mirror vibrates, but the left does not.

I've seen mounting adapters that mount to the mirror threads that have a rubber in them to help eliminate the vibration. I think JC Whitney has them.
Are you sure that it is not helmet buffeting that makes everything blurry.

Yes, just do not start and run engine:joke:. Not sure if you are using after market mirrors but I have tried different things with my after market mirrors (rubber & nylon washer) with no luck. They say the stock ones are the best to use for little to no vibration. There are other things I have seen others try like stuff you can put in your bars. Just to a search and maybe you will find something that will work for you. Good luck.

My left side does it. Done it with the stock ones and now with the after market ones.

Dynabeads in the tires made my mirror vibration go away with the stock ones and the aftermarket Arlen Ness mirrors as well.

Same here. My factory mirrors on my 1300S don't vibrate at all.

Mine vibrate some worse at low and mid rpms, smooths out pretty good at highway speeds but still not perfect. I've never worried about it. I just need to see that something is behind me, I don't need to be able to read the licence plate.

Very often due to poor tire balance. Did you try re-balancing your rear tire (usual culprit) and then front tire (if still needed)?

I guess you could hang a policeman's "sap" on each mirror to weight it down. Could come in handy in a Donnybrook.

mine don't vibrate only when I hit a bump, but if they did while accel or cruising I would use duct tape :joke: I wouldn't worry about it unless it really impairs your vision.
