2011 mirrors different from z1000 or 800?

Hey Everybody,

I see everybody talking about changing their mirrors for the z800 or z1000 mirrors because of the vibrations and blur in them.
When i search pictures of the versys (mk2) 2011 and the z1000 and 800...I get the idea the mirrors on my versys are the same as the z800/1000 because of the way they look? Am i blind and totally wrong?

The choice for me was new mirrors or the motowerk anti vibration riser.

Can you guys help me out?

Maybe it's just me but I've never noticed any vibes, mirrors, bars, pegs, nothing. Perhaps it's too many years on 2 strokes.

On my Gen 1s I changed OEM mirrors to Aprilia Tuono mirrors, which are GREAT. Haven't ridden a Gen 2, but the mirrors on my Gen 3 are also GREAT, right from Ma Kawi (same as the Z1000?), and look a lot like the Tuonos....

lol,well in some gears I can't see more than just the color of something behind me because of the buzz

So, the versys and z1000 mirrors are not the same?
Else I will cancel the riser and get the mirrors against the buzz

For 2014 and up, Kawasaki use different mirrors for the Z1000 and the Versys.
Attached is a pic of a 2015 Z1000.

Strange that my 2011 mirrors are the same as the z1000 and are so prone to vibration then
