just make your mount...i had to make one so i copied the "universal one" that came in my kit...get a small piece of flat iron,and a 2"u-bolt with nylock nuts...i would not try to put a bushing inbetween due to it just being something to wear out and make your mount come loose...measure your mounting stud spacing and drill the plate acordingly...then give yourself 2 holes separated by 2" ...bolt the plate to your motor dont try to use the studs and put the u-bolt around the tube...really easy to make and cheap...good luck with whatever you decide to do
