KTM mirrors v-v-v-vibrate!

Got them mounted after cutting off the LH thread and re threading in the right direction. Then used the Emgo 8mm to 10mm adapters. Slick mounting as the rubber mirror stem cover reached all the way down to the mirror perch and covered everything. Asthetically, they are an improvement (to me). Functionally, somewhat disappointing. At highway speeds they vibrate more than the OEMs. The RH mirror has a bit of an optical flaw. Buffetting wise, that's a hard call. Maybe a bit of an improvement. Ya pays yer money and ya takes yer chances...

I just put these bar end mirrors on my K9650. No vibes and greatly reduced turbulence:
