    Default Need Motor mount help?

    I'm trying to do the front mounts or the easiest ones, but I'm confused on where they are located? First I need to know if I need a different jack because I already have the Harbor Freight motorcycle jack? In the picks I need to know if I'm looking at the right thing? I'm trying to locate the uppers I guess? Let me know if I'm pointing at the mounts in the pics? Where are the fronts on the diagram? My rear master is removed, and everything else except the radiator.

    I've already read that, and watched Andy's video on YouTube

    you don't mention if the link provided the answers you are looking for.

    I've done the front & back mounts (not the bottom ... too difficult) and am very happy with the results. I have a better/truer feel for the bike while riding. My only suggestion is to get polyurethane mounts made by Scorp. If you do use stock mounts get the stiffest mounts you can. I believe the bottom mounts are more dense. Find out the part#s for all 3 mounts to determine the more dense mount.
    Power, looks and style ... nuff said !!

    No, the links didn't help much. I've done plenty of research. I need to know if I need a different jack to line up the motor? I'm trying to do the same ones as you, but can you tell me if I'm pointing to the right mounts in the pics? The front mounts are right by or in between the footrest, right? Is the other one by the ignition switch?

    Here is a picture of the upper mount. It's below the ignition switch. Your second picture is the general area for the front mounts once you remove the brake pedal bracket. We used a center stand while replacling the mounts from SCORP.

    As far as the jack goes, you need something to hold the bike up straight but leaves enough room to use another jack and a block of wood to hold the motor. It really all depends on how big your bike jack is. Put it back as far as possible and strap it down and see if it holds the bike up straight (doesn't need to actually lift it up). Then get another jack and see if there is enough room to support the motor.

    As far as the mounts go, look thru the bike from one side looking to the other with a light and you can see the rubber mounts. I thought that part was in the link but maybe not.

    This basically exactly what I was explaining, but the drawing of it looked different to me. How hard is the one to change by the ignition switch? Did you have to loosen every bolt that Andy did on the YouTube video? I probably won't be using the Scorp. I'm just going to use the oem hard mounts.
