didnt think about the handlebar clamp.. i'll check that.. these mirrors were pretty cheap on ebay, i think the mirror is seperate from the housing
hey dave, i bought some $20 mirrors at the local bike shop years ago, they vibrated sooooo bad they were worthless. they took them on return, with the agreement that i get a credit instead of a refund, since i had installed them. fair enough, i thought. i spent a good hour looking over all their mirrors, hated the shape of them all (maltese crosses and tear drops just aren't for me!) and finally the counter guy says "come look at the kuryakyn catalogue" so i picked out the largest ovals kury makes, they special ordered them, cost me $100! i figured they would be the only high dollar mirrors i would ever have. guess what, they vibrate as bad as the cheap ones. i thought lots of money would solve the problem, it didn't. last year my bike rolled forward when parked, and i busted one (although i did get a new stem for $20). my stock mirrors don't vibrate so much.
i kind of forgot about it, until i was doing some planning on a rd350 "rat rod" build. one of the people really active in rd350 restorations is an hour away, he has a bike shop that specializes in the old buggers, well he sells a thingy called "handlebar snake" and swears it has made a night and day difference in the comfort of his own rd350 (2 stroke 2 cylinder street bikes that are kinda like a swarm of pissed off bumble bees and known for vibration, causing the hands to tingle really bad). i have no idea if they are worth the money, or work, but here it is for y'all to ponder:
no endorsement on my end! haven't ridden a bike so equipped yet! and probably a mild pain to install! anyways just more info for the info pool!
