Default 2006 Fireblade Upper Fairing vibration

Just got the bike last week and I've noticed that at certain (ahem) speeds, the tips of the upper fairing and windscreen will vibrate from the wind pressure. Is this normal or do I have a cheap aftermarket set fitted? If it's a knockoff, they're pretty darned good ones. Does OEM do this? I may change out the upper to get rid of that vibration if other members say they don't have that issue.

Sometimes, there are grommets missing and that can cause vibrations. Check the mounts by the fairing stay and mirrors.

I will look again but it seems to be just the tips. I did notice that one of the mirrors has an improper screw holding it in place but I doubt that's the cause.
