Hi all

I have managed to get the frame sprayed at last and went to put the new front rubber engine mounts and forgot to take pictures of which way round they go.

When I work out how to download pics on here i will post let see how progress is going slowly ha:)

The mount has bmw writing on one side and the other is the mount with wider metal part.

Hope some one can help:D Very Happy

Try going to http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/fiche/PartsFiche.aspx
Make sure you have your vin number and then you can look up the exact part number.

I cannot see any reference about the way that they are on the bike.
Are the shoulders having a different thickness?
From what I recall, they are symmetrical and I believe that they can be installed either way.

Just be aware that the frame doesn't straddle the engine, it mounts to the left side of the engine mounts looking from the front. Also, if memory serves, one of the shoulders is larger and goes to the engine side. They're a hard rubber, so what I did was to heat them up by putting them close to a halogen work lamp, coat them w grease and use a C clamp to pull/push them into the frame. It worked for me, but maybe someone else has an easier way in putting them in.

Has anyone measured the factory rubber engine mount? Energy Suspension makes a number of universal urethane bushings. Maybe something can be used in place of the $50 factory part.
