I have HD mirror extenders, vibration not felt but they turn off due to wind even at a speed of merely 100 kmph.
Did any of you have the same problem or some remedy?

i think we just have to accept this as a design fault , if the engine was rubber mounted it would resolve it , there are bushed handlebar mounting options but may mean fitting custom triple trees to take a bushed mounting system for your bars , there is a custom fix there somewhere but somebody needs to design and manufacture the parts , once enough streets are sold custom makers will start making more parts .
i also suffer useless blurred mirrors :(

I have to admit I don't experience this at all.

I switched from the stock mirrors to the HD Tribal Mirrors WITH the HD Extenders as well. If anything you'd think with the Extenders I'd experience vibration but I can't say I do. Even at 130 km/hr there is no vibration, nor do they "turn in from the wind". (I've even had the bike up to 140, but that's getting uncomfortably fast for me on 2 wheels.)
