Exclamation Aprilia Tuono mirrors for Gen1 and Gen2 Vs. 650

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Greetings Fellow Verys 650 Riders.

I just wanted to clarify experiences on this issue of Aprilia Tuono mirrors used to reduce mirror/hand grip vibrations from the experts themselves.

If you have BOTH Gen 1 and Gen 2, please answer Gen 2 since we already have a good preliminary indications that the Gen 1's vibration was worse.

We will just assume Gen 3 will be better than Gen 2's since we only have 10 poll options max, and they are still collecting relevant data.

Gen 1 and Gen 2 (ONE ONLY):
- SIGNIFICANTLY HELPED - Aprilia Tuono mirrors helped a lot
- SLIGHTLY HELPED - Aprilia Touno mirrors helped a little
- NO HELP/MADE WORSE - Aprilia Touno mirrors were No help (please do not count eBay knockoffs as Aprilia OEM) or made worse.
- FIXED OTHER WAYS - Never needed Aprilia mirrors AFTER making other changes to controls/handle bars/risers/hand guards/mirror extenders, etc... or ANY Combination that worked for you INCLUDING OTHER MIRROR types from any models/manufacturers.
- HAPPY W/OEM - Whether tried Aprilia mirrors or not, happy with the OEM Kawasaki stock mirrors.

The above is what is asked if I cannot fit all of it on the option blanks.

HERE is the corrected Poll - Sorry, Damn computer keyboards!

This should give some factorial representation of the historical evidence of the Aprilia Tuono mirrors and if they help Gen 2 (esp.) riders vibrations.

It seems hands down that it helped the Gen 1 riders, but it is difficult to understand how much they helped on Gen 2 riders Versys mirror vibrations.

Thanks for your help.

Bump. This may be it, a bimodal distribution: plain and simple!
