Default Re: Cheap Rubber Motor Mounts

Thanks for the good advice 2door. I am aware that these are not intended to be used under these conditions but so far, on my "test bed" bike, they are working nicely. In addition to your comments, I am also concerned about their ability to stand up to gas & oil contact but the sample I have soaking in a bowl in a gas/oil mix show no signs of degradation after 10 days.....time will tell. When installed on the bike, I can only move (with effort) the engine side to side about 1/8 inch but multiply that times 4000 times a minute........
As far as "mounting the engine the way it was designed to be mounted" I have found a lot of room for improvement in that area as well. I replace most of the Chinese mounting hardware with upgraded materials.
