Sorry,I'm not able to post pics.If my buddy drops by,he can do it.Quite simple to make.A piece of 1 1/8in. scrap poplar.Bike has 1 1/8in frame tubes.So I drilled 2-1 1/8in holes with forstner bit on drill press.Set pieces against engine,allowing 3/16in gap,marked it with a pencil,ruffed it out on band saw leaving line,then sanded it off to line on my bench disc sander.Then I cut them in half with the grain,removed about 1/8 in from ends so they wouldn't meet up during mounting.Perfect fit with no gap.It should help with vibration level I guess.And it went quicker than it sounds.Hope I explained it well enough.
