About vibration. Replace the stock handlebars and vibrations will decrease depending on the bar you chose.
I used a set of YZ bars for about two weeks on the Strom and after replacing them I surprised at the amount of vibration in stock bars, but that isn't a new comment. Might be helpful for those considering bar end mirrors.
I have a mirror that I tried on the left side and I really liked the look of the bike, picturing in my head one on the right side. I didn't like that I had to look away from the road and down past my hand. The stock mirrors give me a great view of half my shoulder but I can quickly glance at them. Stock mirrors look like poo.
PS -- i don't spell or grammar check in most cases, but props if you can use my quick typing to debunk the factual foundation of my arguments!!
