    The spaces should be a little more parallel or even in height. Sorry, should have clarified that earlier.

    Bobby, do these wear on top or bottom? Maybe for an in-between fix until the new parts get here you could rotate them 180 degrees? I doubt it would make the engine any smoother but it might take out the sag. The location of them makes me think they wear on the top.

    Correct, the front ones wear on top! Seems putting power down rolls the engine back.

    Truthfully you probably could flip them over, I dunno though if they would stay in that position.

    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.

    I hope you wait for the new ones, just turning the old ones 180 degrees won't do much. They're just too soft from the get go. Bascially, it's like trying to hold the whole front of the engine in place with a couple of marshmallows!

    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.

    About 18,000. I can't see Suzuki covering these under warranty, bro. They are cheapskates!

    Default got mine!

    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.

    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.

    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

    You can look @ the part number on the bag. Also, the front ones are squishy like a tennis ball. The harder ones are more like a baseball.

    Default M90 and M109

    http://www.cheapcycleparts.com/model...emblies/119130

    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.

    -Josh

    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.
