The mirrors on my 500 do not do that. I offer that as a clue rather than a solution!

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

Even though the Rebel 300 is totally capable machine...everybody knows the 300 has to work harder to maintain those higher cruising speeds.

Adding more weight to the ends of the handlebars should help.

I haven't had that much problem with morrors so far, but don't do much riding over 60, only 65-70 occasionally. Will check next time I'm at 65-70.
Put Rebel 300 in signsture

As long as I still get excited to go for a ride, I'll be riding. In the end it may be a moped, but I'll still be riding.

You only have today, go for a ride

Ride and be Free

I have read that some squeeze silicone sealant into their bars.

Just do it! (I did: 2017 Rebel 500; 2014 MT-07)

yup, silicon in the end of the bars and then poke some ball bearings into the uncured silicone to add more weight. Sometimes a wine cork helps (dependent on the bar design) to prevent the weight from being placed where its not actually going to do anything.
