Default re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

I know this is pretty simple, but I had to fill a space in the frame last night. I had almost the right amount of space between the bars for the engine but it was just a little too much. The studs would fit but if I tightened the one on the seat post side the other wouldn't quite reach. I just used 1/3 of a piece of heater hose inside the motor mount. I slipped it between the motor and the frame then tightened it down. I had to do the same on the down rod, but it tightened right up. Heater hose is a nice thick piece of rubber and there is no tread like on a bike tire. the mount makes full contact.

Lesson learned in the first install that work on the reinstall.
