Have noticed that my left mirror blurs quite a bit more than the right hand side. Have checked and tightened the fasteners/nuts but seems to still stay that way. Any ideas?

Both my mirrors can suffer from individual or simultaneous vibe at any given time, & sometimes both work like they should.
Maybe they pick up the "bad vibes" from us!?!?!?!:huh:

That's Deep! A true reflection of our mindset?

I get the blur in the normal 'cruising' rev ranges as well

oddly enough, once I'm at roughly 7K rpm, they become clear again...like vibe cancellation or something

The bike is not symmetrical, so it's not surprising one side shakes more than the other. (Quick example, drive chain is only on the left side.) Left side shakes more on my bike too.

Therein could lie the solution!!!
The chain!!

I did notice that when I renewed my "sticky" chain, the bike ran a whole lot smoother.

Hmm, yeah my chain, now at 15K is getting abit stiff in places. Maybe time to change.

I have noticed this also. It may be that there is more mass on the right handle bar than the left. The weight of the MC may help dampen vibes.

Do they make tin foil hats in hi viz and DOT rated or do you wear that under the helmet?

Can't have NUTHIN tween your head and outer space IF you want the tin foil hat to work!

Aluminum foil IS hy-vis to BEMs...!
