Lane Splitter bar end mirrors. Absolutely no vibrations at all.

I think it would be worth investigating what the cause is, it does not happen on every bike. There are 5 tigers of various years in our group and we don't suffer with vibrations.
I have heard that engine bars can cause vibes, but we all have them too.
I guess I would start by checking the wheels for balance... good luck

My 2019 XCA mirrors vibrate on decel. Left one worse. I'm ok with them, I've ridden bikes with much worse mirrors.

I doubt the vibration problem is with the mirrors--that is a result of an imbalance elsewhere on the bike. Look for the source of the vibration. Check wheel balance, wind buffeting, pannier/top box buffeting, wheel alignment, tyre condition, etc
Laterally unstable unless moving.

Likely why Triumph have gone back to the old style mirrors for the 900, too many complaints from both Tiger Sport & Tiger 800 owners.

Looks like old style mirrors may be a good call?
Dealership said everything was tight on the bike, though I dont see the point of changing the mirrors if they are all like that

My 2018 Xrx has the clearest mirrors of any bike I've had and clearer than on  my Multistrada 950S :028: :028: :028:

... it is possible that some have vibey mirrors and some don't, due to very small differences in each bike's construction.
The mirrors on my 2019 XRx do vibrate a little bit at high revs/speed. Not a big problem, though; I've seen worse. Mirror vibrations can be tricky. Sometimes you just cant pinpoint the cause of the problem.

Is it '18 on that have the new style vibey mirrors? The boys on the TS1050 forum that have the newer mirrors say the buzz only occurs at higher speeds eg 70+ so likely won't be noticed by steadier riders. Easy swaps to the old style or fit the cheaper oem 'Prilly jobs.
