Default Re: Looking for an Extra-Large Mounting Bracket

Squishy grips & a sprung seat - isolate yerself from the vibration, far easier anyway lol

TBH, much to my surprise I found that the engine itself isn't the primary source of the undue vibration... provided it's properly tuned and not "four stroking". A huge amount of the hand & rear numbing annoyance is nothing other than the much-hated stock chain tensioner with the chain "bumping" over that hard lil plastic wheel. My second build had a shiftkit and it's a night and day difference, so much so I've been using the kit grips (rock hard Grubee ones) with no discomfort at all - and I do go on rather long trips lol
