Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Fixed my motor mounts today. I have a skinny frame, and the motor mounts that were given to me (4 stroke) were made for a fat frame. I had made some shims out of folded pieces of sheet metal (dumb idea) and they became very loose to the point that my motor was vibrating violently in the frame. I made new shims by cutting some tubing off an aluminum frame that had already previously been cut on, and the new shims are working much better. The motor is mounted solid again, and I can feel the difference in the ride. So much better.
