Default Re: hi new here, does anyone know if you can grind out part of the bottom engine moun

Welcome to the community.
The reason Greg warns about a rear suspension bike is that as the rear wheel moves, up or down, that will loosen or tighten the engine drive chain. That can be a real problem. You want constant tension on the chain. Not too tight and not too loose. Most builders shy away from a bike with rear suspension for that reason. Not saying it can't be done but just making you aware of the challenge.

Good luck. Maybe post some pictures of your bike and we might be able to offer more advice on engine mounting.
