    I ordered a 2 stroke kit from thatadax and I tried to install it last night, but none of the mounts fit my bike. It's as if the frame is too big for the mounts. My bike is a Specialized brand with suspension in the front. It's a pretty nice mountain bike I'm kind of bummed that it won't fit. Are there any adapters i can use to make this work?

    Large universal front mount.

    Try using a large universal front mount. Some folks need to use them front and rear.

    Just be sure they are secure. You do not want the engine to move on you when you are cruising down the street.

    A pic would help. A muffler clamp from the auto parts store can help you adapt your motor mount to the large diameter tubes. Search this site to see how others have done it.
