Alright I'v heard about people using rubber sheets on the inside and outside of their clutch to quite it down. So i mocked up my own.
That one shows the thickness of the outside cover (1/8th inch)
And there is a picture of the inside cover (1/16 inch) The clutch moves funtionally. The only thing i am worried about is it warping under the heat. What do you guys think of the idea?

If it does end up working i will be making these for resale as well as rubber to reduce the vibrations from the engine. (I have access to a laser cutting machine so they will be exact fit unlike this hand cut one)

Alright thanks, its pretty soft rubber so it that should be good. The 1/8th inch would quite it down more but i didn't wanna have to cut out certain parts of the middle so it'd fit. I just did the 1/16th. I glued it down and its on the motor. The motor isn't on the bike so i'll post how it works once the bike is running. Where can i get some grease for the gears?

Would anybody be interested in buying these or some rubber motor mounts made out of the 1/16th inch if i started making these? This isn't an order form just wondering if its worth getting into.

I had that problem too. Then I got a better Walkman, rotfl. Na, fiberglass plate like on a roof, will do just as good. and heat dont bother it as much. Home Depot carrys the flat stuff. I also said, yea right. It works. (c)
