Re: how i made an extended front motor mount
I had to extend the front mount on my bike too, I used the extra motor mount section which added about an inch and a quarter or so. I double nutted the front mounting studs and removed them and replaced them with a piece of 6mm all thread I purchased at Ace Hardware. Just double nut them and screw them in. I used a die grinder (could have been a hacksaw) to cut off the excess length. I've replaced all the nuts on the installation with elastic stop nuts except for areas that get hot such as the exhaust and intake manifold.
