    Default Dreading motor mount replacement

    Well boys and girls motor mounts are on the way so I thought I should prepare by looking for a how to posts for this monumental task(first time even removing the body panels ). It looks like the thread that Bobbymac did is very detailed but all the photos are missing. Is there some where else to get a step by step.

    Thanks in advance

    Wow! you must be an old fashioned take it slow kind of gentleman. I was up under mine's skirt within 2 weeks of knowing her!

    Here is Andy's (Some 9) video "how to" on changing the motor mounts.

    Thanks, ya little timid about stripping her down, everything up til now has been a bolt on. I saw Andy s video but he is kinda vague on a few things and Bobbymac how to looks a little bit more newbie friendly.

    I must recently changed mine out following BobbyMac's how to. Andy's video is helpful too. It's not as bad as it seems. I did it by myself but having someone to help would make the job a lot easier. You definitely need a bike jack and a regular floor jack to support the motor!

    Is the bike jack just to hold it upright? Was thinking of using my shop wheel chock to hold her steady and floor jack for under engine.

    Bike stays on the kick stand, I've done it without a jack.

    I did it on the kickstand as well, with a little help of a small jack under the engine to align the holes when putting it all back...

    Nice! The bike is a lot smoother after doing them. Certainly use the Bobbymac thread. I found it to be the most useful.
    Give me a few days notice when you get the mounts. I can always whip over and lend a hand. I found (as did Bob) an extra set of hands makes this job a lot easier. Took about 2hrs start to finish. (on the kick stand with a floor jack)

    Did mine Saturday. One the side stand. Didn't remove the exhaust. Must have an extra set of hands for this method. I undid the zip tie on the frame rail and removed the bolt that hold the retainer for the flexible part for the rear brake line and dropped the frame down. It was a pain. I went in blind. If I had to do it all over again. I would put the shifter side of the removable frame section together first. Then get the other ones started before tightening them down. It wasn't bad in retrospect. It was intimidating at first as I was removing frame bolts and holding the engine up with a jack.

    Thanks buddy, you are my safety net if things go sideways. We still need to get together one of these days to do the rubber for beer swap.

    My understanding is that the top mounts are usually the ones that really need replacement, while the bottom one is usually not as worn. I plan on doing just the tops this summer.
    Power, looks and style ... nuff said !!

    The front ones are usually the most worn. They are originally the softer ones. The top and bottom rear are made of a harder rubber. The top ones are easily replaced, the bottom ones can only be done when removing the engine.

    Only the rear top ones are harder,
    front ones and rear bottom ones are softer.

    Well guys I did it thanks to all the info on this site. Hardest part was putting my cobra case guards back on.

    I do notice a tad vibration at low rpm but where as before 120km on the highway was a paint shaker now has become the sweet spot, smooth as butter.

    Thanks again

    Good to hear you got it done!!
    It seems like a scary task until you jump in. I found it smoothed things out at higher speeds too.

    and he was very knowledgeable , too bad he left the site ....big loss fr all of us ===> TRod .

    he said : '' . I left the site some time back because of comments by another member ''

    I missed that , I don't come here as much as before , my moto trip to Arizona and Utah ruined biking
    for me in my neighborhood , so little to see here , in the 5 months of riding available.


    i sure had TRod ( Tracy ) as ''thick skinned'', wonder who hurt him ?
