    Welcome to the forum. I bet those engine mounts really cut down on the vibration felt thru the seat and bars.

    I get a small amount of vibration at the beginning when i release the clutch but after that not very much vibration at all.

    Really put the motor high in the frame. Looks like it helped chain clearance.

    it did help a little bit, but i did have to do a lot of adjusting with the rear sprocket and motor mounts.

    What were those mounts originally/how did you make them? I really like them, my favorite mount design yet. Also, what kind of sprocket is that? Very clean build, looks very comfortable :)

    I fabricated the mounts from raw material then I welded metal tabs on the bike frame, I found some bushings from a local autoparts store to give some direction and dementions.

    Very clever!, I WANT those mounts, do you find the engine has any kind of free play, i.e. does it shift around, or is it pretty solidly planted?

    100% solid, no free play at all, Some people thought it would never work, but they work great.
    The sprocket was a custom job, me and a friend drilled a bunch of holes in a standard aluminum sprocket from pirate cycles (Thanks Justin).
