Question to all suzuki owners\ex-owners

Ok I went fro a ride on a friends gixxer 600 today and I thought it was just my beat up kat, but is it just suzi's or all bikes that you can berely see anything in the mirrors while moving due to vibration? Or am I just getting some freaky "just my luck" kinda thing going???

Shouldn't be that bad but you may get a little vibration. Never had that problem on my 750

I don't have that problem. Problem with mine is that the right one isn't worth a damn. It can't see behind me, only way to the right or up in the sky. Not that it matters because I'm usually last in line anyways

the mirrors aren't good for much anyways. but if they are vibrating too much just pull in the clutch to see behind you.

My mirrors don't vibrate. The last time they did vibrate, LVC discovered that my front wheel was slightly misbalanced. After they rebalanced, it was smooth.

Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.

I get some vibration on the interstate...and at higher speeds. I tightened the nuts on the bolts for the mirrors and it seemed to help a little bit. Or do what Vcook said and pull in the clutch, that works real well.
