    Yes final dimensions ready to send to maker today and I am interested in any input on the deflection of a stock mount installed new to see what the at rest measurements is.

    Cooter do you need a new mount on one of your bikes? Both my bikes have about 20k miles on them and both mounts are good. You ride way more than me and I would like someone elseís input (and labor to install) on how they work and feel. Anyone feel like sending me a isolator thatís trashed so I can install the bushing get in touch as well I want the manufacturer to have on hand when they make the bushings.

    I have/had Buells ranging from 4000-80,000 miles and some were pretty trashed, I have removed them before but so far my lucks held out and I've never had to replace a bad one? Sorry, I don't have an old one to send, maybe someone else does I hope? I would check BadWeb if you come up empty here, they got some riders on there!

    I know the trick to an easy mount swap is to have the front tire supported by a chock or stand and evenly support the front of the engine as well. You can loosen the big bolt a little first to adjust as necessary. EZ PZ after that.

    This sounds like a good excuse to buy another clapped out bike!

    Is that a joke aimed at me?

    Heh heh. Cooter sends stuff to my house addressed to "Aarons Buell Junk Yard" or "No Beer Discount Buell Parts"

    I think I enjoy turning wrenches on them more than riding them. It seems like as soon as I finish one, I lose interest and wind up selling it.

    I did the same thing with geo trackers for a few years. Buy them for 5-600 bucks. Basically went over them, refreshed everything, nice wheels a little lift kit and then I'd sell only to start on another a few months later. Made a fun hobby and produced a little side money too

    I may have an isolator with a questionable bushing at home. I will have to look this weekend in my piles of parts. (shut it Cooter!)
