    Ever since I broke the front engine mounting points and started using clamps, the engine has tilted to the right a little bit. My redneck mount seems pretty solid, just the motor is tilted a good 2-3 inches to the right. The chain is pretty aligned, and the bike seems to run and drive well. My only concern is if it will keep tilting and I will have to redo it. Give me your opinions.

    with motor tight and chain run working well, I'd leave it alone - if it starts to move, then it will need fixing

    if you're feeling adventurous, you could replace the two front case bolts with high-grade, longer studs - then put nuts on the studs to tighten case halves together, while leaving room to fasten a piece of angle iron to the rest of the studs - this might give you enough attachment strength to hold it onto frame
