I can answer the left mirror issue, it loosens because its right hand threaded, and the wind naturally loosens it. Don't know why Kawasaki hasn't put left hand threads on their left mirrors; lots of other manufacturers do. I solved my loose mirror issue with liberal amount of blue Loctite on the inner tension bolt, and red permanent locktite on the mirror mount bolt. Hasn't budged in 10,000 miles. I just don't adjust it, leave it alone.
The GIVI worked for me, and I think the Shoei is fairly quiet.
For the vibration in the bars, the bar end weights help, so if they were removed for Barkbusters that might be the reason. I found using the foam tape fix on the plastic fairing bits helped the handlebar vibration as well, if that makes any sense. My only vibrations now at 18K are in the footpegs, and that can't be felt when wearing boots. Good luck!
