I have the same problem--usually when accelerating. Mirrors settle down when I'm cruising 3500-4000RPM. I was thinking about gluing some weight to the back of them--but I don't know if tha that will work--worth a try I guess.

You know, I have noticed that too. My settle as I get to cruising speed. I guess I never paid too much attention since my Harley does the same thing.

Ditto for me. Left is a very good view and the right is a blurring that doesn't settle down.

I find it interesting. My left mirror is rock solid, but my right mirror has quite a bit of vibration.

My left mirror was buzzing so bad that below 3000 rpm it was unusable. I went to the dealer and they said it was the nature of the beast. Well I decided to fix it myself, here is the solution. Go to home depot and purchase Velcro squares, under $4.00. Remove mirror and put these squares on outer edge of mirror frame, put mirror on and shaking and buzzing are totally gone. I placed these strips on the 3 outer edges top, side and bottom, probasbly a more securely mounted mirror now.

Why are folks riding under 3000 rpm? Every BMW sales & tech guy has recommended riding at the beginning of the power band, which is around 4500 on the hexhead engines.

I am not riding below 3000 rpm but I start out there and when in traffic and cars are creeping along real slow, there isn't much choice. Besides when my engine is cold, I refuse to rev it up to high the oil flows to slowly.
