Useless left mirror

Wow...I never had a worse mirror vibration than on this bike. The right mirrors is tolerable but the left is virtually useless...anyone else having this issue?

No. It vibrates at different frequencies depending on engine speed, but it's not useless.

On mine they both vibrate enough to blur but are usable unless I get WOWed (O&A reference) from behind. My left is better than the right, the right is a little looser so tightening the nut (inside bottom) might help.

I don't think it's too bad on mine... only blurry at certain rpms... Tighten everything down

I can see that something is behind me in my mirrors. If I want to try to figure out exactly what it is, I have to put my hand on the mirror to dampen the vibration. For me, a head check is the best option.
