Well I just got my front ones replaced tonight. First off I want to thank BobbyMac for thinking of me and ordering me a set of new mounts when he ordered his. Thanks Bro! I also have to thank Lucky06 for coming down to my house tonight and basically doing all the work and helping me replace mine. Thanks Dude!
Mine looked worse than I thought that they would. I have 16,000 on the bike and I took a few pictures of them in comparison to the new mounts. I also snapped a few install pics that might help some others.
I'm gonna give the bike a test ride after I get home from work tomorrow. I'm assuming that based on how my old mounts look that I'll have a much tighter/smoother ride than before.
It was a thought, just in case they go on prolonged back order. Thanks for letting me know.
I got a shipping notice from Deland today so maybe some showed up. I ordered a pair of new tank cushions and it could be they decided to go ahead and ship those instead of waiting for the engine bushings.

The only way I would do that is if I could lift the engine up a little to take pressure off them, then reach in and rotate them with something. I wouldn't go through the full removal process just to turn them. Mine actually isn't that bad yet, but you know how it is when everyone says how great something works, you have to try it too.
Just some FYI. Back in my import tuner days, we were always looking for cheap mods to help our ricers out. One of the things we did was to take our stock civic motor mounts which had a three pointed star design, and fill the gaps with windshield urathane. It took them about two days to cure all the way through, but when done they were basicly a solid rubber mount which was much stiffer and transfered into more solid shifts.
I'm not recomending anybody pull their bike completely apart and squirt some windshield caulk instead of spending $40 to do it the right way, but, if someone's is really bad and they can't get a replacement, it's an option.

say bobby how many miles did you have on your boke when you replaced them? Thanks wonder if this could be done under warrenty.
Hey blind once I saw your comment on noticing whether you need is great I went to check my bike right after and true enough they are not aligning up.. and I have notice more vibration etc from my bike... Just ordered so I'll attempt with posted how-to here. cant wait to see any difference this might make..
Thank you BobbyMac!
I just got my bushings and installed them. Mine were as bad if not worse than the first pictures on this thread. 25,500 miles on em.
I notice a much smoother ride now!
I put the bike on a bike jack but took it down.
It seemed much easier with just a small hydraulic jack with the bike on its kickstand.
Thanks also BobbyMac ! from start to finish including washing the bike off and a shower for me less than 3 hours ! GREAT how to .
WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU ??
WOW just got back from a little ride to check out the improvement with the new mounts it is amazing how nice it is to ride with no shakes and gas tank not look like it ready to fly off when your lugging it down a little. I would highly recomend this to everyone to do you will not be disapointed with the finished results.
WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU ??
Just got mine (2 front) and almost ready to tackle..
waiting for front pads. and will also check hub nut so this way I have bike down for 1 whole day and take care of a few items at once...
wish me luck...
I have a question.
If my local suzuki dealer is a lousy one. Just in case, hahahaa
How can i recognize he is really selling me the rear motor mounts?
I mean if they (rear and front) look just the same, how can i tell the dealer is not selling the front ones as they were the rear ones?
Thanks for the inputs
Just ordered this part. Thanks for the excellent write up.
I ordered mine today. I"ll post pics of the new vs. old when I do the swap. Thanks, Bobby, for the pictoral How-to.
Ive checked every place I could find and the web site www.boulevardsuzuki.com has the best prices I could find. They are cheeper on everything I have looked up. I have a order in now hope shipping is as good as there prices.
ride to live and live to ride. Ride it like you stole it.2006 mean a$$ burple
Part #43 (Thanks Munster) seems all 6 are the same.... Does anyone know if this is the soft or harder mount? Think I could order 109 Rear mounts and just install them on my M90? They look very similar
You posted a link for a 1500, not an 1800. The part I ordered was #11652-10g30.
Oh, I didn't notice you had an M90. I don't know what the differences are on the m90. It sems like the m90 has the same mounts all the way around. The m109 has softer front mounts. We are swapping in the harder rear mounts to the front om the m109.

From the pic's it looks like you might have found the smoking gun on some of our exploded drives. I am thinking I might get some delrin and machine 6 replacements and put them in before it becomes a problem. Very nice write up.
