View Full Version : XS Question -Motor mount

I recently saw a photo of an xs chop that has NO top motor mount..... anyone ever do this? if yes any detriment other than the extra vibration?

I don't run a top mount, didn't have room for it... My engine is re-phased, so its smoother running though.

My old roommate has a stock engine without a top mount as well in his hardtail. It shook, but nothing else was really a problem....

I've read up that Triumph's will split crankcases without the top mount, dunno about XS's though.

I've semi designed a nice compact item (in my mind) that I was going to fab out of stainless for my bike.

The factory one is ugly and is packed with rubber vibration isolation, so it's probably a good idea.....

I don't think the top mount on XS's has any rubber in them??

maybe they don't have rubber, I actually don't have any for mine - I was going through my mates box of XS bits and found a set of them and just assumed they were XS ones!

my 77 and my 80 both have some rubber in the mount... they both are a three piece odd set up.

I have seen a couple diff chops done without the top mount, I tend to think the engineers knew what they were doing but I also wanted to know if anyone has ran without....

yeh, that 3 piece arrangement was the one I found in the box.
