The lack of the forward frame brackets probably don't help matters much. Have you checked that the fairing is solidly bolted to the main frame and the main frame has a long bolt through just behind the steeringhead with a nut on the other side frame? There's also a U-bolt on each side holding the frame to the down tubes. If the bike's running normally, the mirrors I've seen on 1100s don't shake much at all so I'd think there might be something loose in the fairing mounting. Do you have the Honda fairing or a Vetter? They do mount differently, the Vetter has a different frame without the two 'horns' that stick out forward of the frame and bolt to the fairing skirt.
