Quote from: dwjohnson on May 22, 2023, 05:43:45 PMHi fellas, I'm not very familiar with the way a Buell engine is mounted so I'm looking for some help. I have a 02 M2 cyclone frame and I am trying to mount the motor in the frame. I have the big aluminum mount that goes at the top front and mounts to both heads and I see where the rear 4 bolt motor mount ties to the swingarm. I also have the right side front lower mount that also serves to mount one end of the shock but I'm not sure what else I need to finish up that mounting area. Surely something else goes down there to support all that weight , I have only been able to look at photos online trying to figure this out so far. I have noticed the regulator mounts down there in front and looks like a left side bracket is there too but I don't see what supports the engine weight in that area or how the brackets are tied to frame for support?? What am I missing or where can I find more info ? Thanks

I guess I just had trouble believing all the engine weight hung by the front head from the top isolator, seems to me that's asking alot from the front headbolts and gasket. but I suppose the rear isos handle some two. And that stabilizer link into the front of the cam cover, wow, isn't that an oil passage?? Anyway I finally got the motor mounted but man what a struggle with the rear isolators and 4 engine bolts, guess just cause it was my first time. I do have a question about the two rear isolators, the holes in them seem to be drilled off center ?? I researched new ones and different ones but they all appear to be drilled off center, is this correct? Any reasoning, I'm sure there is a purpose? Thanks again And another question about exhaust for the tube frame, any headpipes work besides the buell ones? I don't have any and all my HJarley ones are hitting the frame of course.
