    I put the "street glide" style mirrors on my 07 UC. I have much less vibration than the stock mirrors. I don't count vibration at idle rpms, though. Around 2300 to 2500 they are fine for me. Remember, mirrors do not tell you it is "safe", only that it is "not safe". Always turn your head.:D

    nfusion; vibration should be no different than handlebar mirrors b/c there in the same mounting area(s). Did you get the fairing mirrors tight enough? Also, like Porter indicates, don't judge vibration in idle/low speeds. Best to test at road speed.

    The mirrors on the SG don't vibrate at all and give an excellent line of sight. Make sure the mirrors are installed on the correct sides and are tightened properly.
