Keep the mirrors; that's not the problem. Trade the bike for a Ridley. Same H-D Evo, just tweaked a little differently. I've heard they're real smoooth throughout the rev range. Might cost you a little extra, though. Used Ridleys are tough to come by and the new ones are commanding top dollar.

Get the bar-end mirrors from Al Lighton at American Sport Bike. They don't vibrate much, although the small diameter limits the view. They sure do look cool on the XB, however.

Alternative: get your head on a swivel.

Suggestion: All of your Buell-specific questions will be answered at the indispensable Badweatherbikers, the dedicated Buell BBS.

I think what the guy said about bar end mirrors is interesting. I don't know if they vibrate more or less, but they are they only was to go if you are actually interested in seeing behind you. At first, I worried about them getting broken if I ever dropped my VFR, but they would actually be about the cheapest thing on the whole bike to replace.

I recently put CRG Hindsight LS mirrors on my '04 Lightning and am absolutely satisfied with them. Vibration seems to affect them less and the optics are light-years ahead of OEM. I originally bought these purely to get rid of the bug-antenna OEM mirrors for aesthetic reasons, but I was pleasantly surprised by the gains in rearward visibility. They're not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended!
