Default Re: bicycle motor vibration

There is the thought that if you rubber mount the engine you can get rid of the vibration. On the other hand loose motor mounts can cause vibration. On the motorcycles we used to work on if a mount came loose it would knock the enamel off your teeth. I have four different engine company outfits. The dax is the best one for being vibration free, I rode it today and am still amazed at how well it runs. It is the only one that does not vibrate. I am tempted to install one of the other engines in this bike and see if the worst one will shake the Green Hornet. The newest one from Revolution I have to keep the revs down or it will shake the bolts off. One thing I don't know what would happen if you hide the vibration with rubber, I think the engine would shake its self to pieces and you would not know. Have fun Dave
