please do share...

which mount, and why?

Changing one mount in my Satty made all the diff between riding like a Harley hard-tail and silky smooth driving. It vibrated like a ***** before, but no more! Why you changing yours?

bruno: engine jerks alot, i thought it was my driving skills but then i tried my friends 99 4dr and it was silky smooth shifting, but on mine i gotta baby the clutch and be perfect for it to be smooth so I know its not my driving.

Found out I need to replace my rear engine mount so I gotta buy a new one from honda sometime.

I see... didn't you get mounts with the swap or did you reuse the old ones?

I wanna change another mount on the Satty later... I get a LITTLE of that jerky feeling, so I know it's time.

Mounts are easy... just put some pressure on the motor with a jack + 2x4 under the oil pan at the rear corner where it's structurally strongest... then proceed to put light pressure on it while you remove the bolts... swap mounts and put it back down. simple enough, yes?

I got some new mounts with my swap but the rear engine moutn was missing so I had to use mine already there, plus scott said he thinks the 6th gen mount wont work in the rear on the subframe.

He was telling me I have to remove the subframe, power steering connections, downpipe etc, so its gonna be a weekend job
