Default Solid mount 2 stroke

People who have there bikes set up as correct as possible could you give us an idea of the vibration from the motor. Is it noticeable? Do your hands or butt get numb?

You hands an butt can get numb- depends on the bike, and the engine you put on it. Both can vary greatly.

I use lead sheet to mount all my engine kits, it works great to calm the vibrations down.

You can also fill your handle bars with lead shot, which will all but eliminate the vibrations there.

some motors vibrate more than others. It's the name of the game with these things. I've heard the 50cc motors tend to vibrate less than the 70cc motors, but I can neither confirm nor deny that as I have never run a 50cc.
