Default Re: Greetings from Texas

Sorry, we don't allow members from Texas..........................

Only kidding. We have a lot of Texas members here. Welcome to the forum.

Good luck with your idea about vibration absorbsion but I'll need to warn you that it's been tried before. Many different materials have been tried; rubber, urethane, mouse pads, rubberized tape, etc, etc. The problem is that you are not eliminating vibration, which is an inherent product of a single cylinder, 2 stroke engine, but only transferring the vibes to the engine mounts and mount fasteners.

We always suggest that the engine be mounted as solidly as possible with no resilient material between it and the bike frame.
Good luck however, and let us know how the material you've chosen works for you.
