Default Sorbothane?

Hi everyone,

I know rubber is a big no no when mounting engines, but this being my first build I don't want to destroy my bike or engine and have read how metal to metal can cause headbolts to loosen just not as fast as rubber.

With that said I believe in today's day and age there has to be some kind of material that absorbs vibration instead of just redistributing it to the other parts of the engine. I was hoping sorbothane was that material.

Anyone recently use the stuff? I researched it on this site and there wasnt much on it. There seems to be a lot of mix feelings on vibration dampening on this site though.

I just want to limit the vibration on the frame mounts only, in hopes to limit the vibration the engine itself endures.

Thank you
