anyone have problems with vibration in their mirrors. my right is solid but my left vibrates bad enough that i can't tell what lane the car is in. everything is tight. never had a problem like this on my Aero so don't know where to start or if there is anything i can do.

it's a fury thing. lots of guys have the same problem. I don't understand why it's always the left mirror. my after market ones do it to. :confused:

Bar end weights?

Anyone know if bar end weights really do anything? I know my VFR has 'em, but that v4 is so smooth compared to this twin, I can't figure out why it would need them, and the Fury doesn't, unless they just aren't "cool".

Or maybe Honda thought if they subdued all the vibes, no one would take it seriously as a v-twin? :eek:

well happy to see its not just me. it must be something with the mounting on the clutch handle, while the other is on the brake fluid reservoir.

Vibes

Same here the oem did it and so do my aftermarket .The same vibe is what makes your fingers go tingle . I was thinking mayby installing rubber groment washers top and bottem of tree to cushion bars to see if eliminates both , very annoying .

Same problem here with my aftermarkets. I was going to start tightening everything down, but it doesn't sound like that would do much good.:confused:

Rattles from the Single Pin design

This is a classic characteristic of a single pin V-Twin engine. With a single pin the cylinders fire right after one another (so one piston at top dead, and the other just firing down), creating that unmistakable rumbling motor. With a dual pin engine, the cylinders fire exact opposite of each other (one piston a top, one at bottom position), creating a much smoother ride. Hope I explained clearly

Not much you can do to stop this, regardless of what aftermarket mirror, bar weight, etc you buy. Just how the Single pins work. My stock and aftermarket mirrors do this, but so did my other bikes. Personally, I love it! Like to feel the power travel right thru my hands every time I twist that throttle :cool:

Ok now I know why the left mirror vibrates.... now all I need to know is what makes the right mirror not vibrate so I can try to stop the left side from vibrating :p

I haven't noticed a lot of vibration in my mirrors. The stock ones got loose easily, but my aftermarket ones are really tight.

Bob, Your handle bars are out of balance weight wise because of brake reservoir, which is a leveraged weight, that said go with a weight comperable to a filled reservoir, some old school would fill there bars with compacted play sand for weight and to dampen vibes. ( think of it like this,your bars are hollow like a tin box, vibrate it and it will dance off the table, fill box with water or sand and the box doesn't dance it absorbes. Hope this helps.:)

mine dont vibrate at all, I would check to see the plugs if they are all good or one a little icky, and i would check that the idle is high enough. My shadow does that but it goes away with the slightest touch of the throttle so i just need to not be lazy and dial it in better or just tolerate it while stopped.

Without reading everybodies responses... We talked about this about 6 months ago... think it came down to the way the pistons or cams in the bike were... Seems like most Honda's do this to an extent... can't remember the exact words all of us came up with, just paraphrasing a bit...

I can't believe with all the motor-heads on this board no one has come up with the obvious solution!!:rolleyes: Just take a right side mirror and mount it on the left! Viola! Problem sol-ved. Just like the picture below, except opposite.:D
