Picture or link? I'm thinking about a similar mod as I'm having the same issue.

That was from modern vespa, there are many different models/brands, but that is a example of what a bar end mirror looks like.

try adjusting the angle of the stems (forward or backward), that can make a big difference too.

Most bar-end mirrors stick out past the bars more, the ones in that photo are sort of unique. I tried them on my Vespa a long time ago and I thought they vibrated even more, and I didn't care for the positioning, or the extra width they took up, but that's just me.

I'm a pretty wide dude and I've been really happy with the stock mirrors, but everyone's different of course.
