Default Re: Are they supposed to vibrate this much!!!!!

The latest update.

Since I already had started building a rubber mount/bolt/washer to replace the one that broke a few days ago, I thought I would mount it and see what happens. Mind you that 90% of you advised against any rubber mounts but I was/am curious about how it would perform. I just finished a five mile test run with it and much to my surprise the amount of vibration has been cut substantially. I topped out at about 26 mph which is about right. I could actually sit on the seat and the whole bike felt alot more solid. The vibration has left the seat but in the process has been transferred to the pedals giving my feet a workout! The U bolt and high performance spark plug has been ordered anyway. I don't see staying with the rubber support even though that engine is in there solid.
