engine vib 09-10?

For those in the know. Is there a noticable difference between the pre-2010 and 2010 and later, as it relates to the new enigine mounts and the vibration issue.
Thanks for the collective wisdom.

Most noticeable is at the mirrors, and I find the 2010 models have lesser vibrations around 90 kph and below. But traveling at higher speeds, 120kph to 140kph, doesn't matter which models, they vibrate.

Butt wise, it doesn't affect me. Vacuum syn the Throttle bodies do improve the ride with lesser vibes (mine was very off sync'ed)

Not that big a difference between the models. The stock mirrors suck on all year of the Versys. Better mirrors and this will make a big improvement.. http://www.shop.motowerk.com/Anti-vi...ANVB-HB-RS.htm

I have an 09 V and a 10 V. I see no real difference in vibration between the two. The vibration is greatly reduced with mileage and use of synthetic oil (in my case AmsOil). I replaced the OEM mirrors with Emgo, which were much less prone to vibration.

Not really a issue with vibrations and changed the stock mirror to these:

Had the 08 and 10V. Agreed with ScottyNeal. Not much difference between the two.
