I have hand guards and bar end weights my mirrors still shake. I think it's the normal thing for a Versys.

I put Aprilla mirror's on my last mk1 and it did cure the vibration.  Haven't got round to it yet on my latest mk1.

I tried the aprilla mirrors following advice from here. They still shook and were smaller so had restricted visibility to add to the problem, so I swapped back. They were not original Aprilla mirros though, some 20 imitation so that may have been the problem. The thing that has improved the vibration most on my bike was changing chain and sprockets. I am still intending to balance throttle bodies one day which was the other advice from a very seasoned Mk1 rider.
Sometimes it takes a winding road to get your head straight.
