  • Front motor mount 07 Street Glide question

    Getting ready to help a friend replace the front motor mount on his Street Glide...anything special I need to know or is it pretty straight forward?
    Thanks,

    Pretty straight forward. Do not unadjust part # 105, rather swing it out of your way or unbolt it. The other mounts will hold the engine in place, and only a little pressure will be necessary to life engine off the mount while replacing it. Use threadlock blue on the mounting bolts. I'm beginning to hear these things are eating mounts and causing excess vibrations, noted especially in the fairings.....

      Yeah, he already replaced a broken fairing mount...dealer says there's nothing wrong with the bike but the think shakes like hell between 2500 and 3200 rpm. Wore him out riding 500 miles straight home from Herdstock.
      Does the tank need to come off? One indy said it would to replace all the mounts but we're just doing the front.

        If you're replacing just the front mount, then the tank doesn't go anywhere. Yes, if doing the top mount. Take the filter off to get better access though.

        There are already aftermarket mounts on the market for this bike.......

          Thanks, just the front for now. I saw where there were a few aftermarket mounts out there but we're heading to Bar Harbor in two weeks and he didn't want to chance ordering something and it taking us up to the last minute. Picked up a mount at the dealer a little while ago and will probably do this tonight or tomorrow.
          I'll let ya know how it goes.

          Are you saying that I need to disconnect the part#105 and swing it out of the way even if doing just the front?

            Only if the mount doesn't drop out on it's own. After taking the 3 main bolts out (2 side and one center) the mount should come out easily. Shit happens though....

                  Dave, you may have answered a question that I have not asked yet. I have already repaired one of my faring mounts (tack welded a washer on the end were slotted hole was) and my bike seems to have more vibration than it used too. I assume the mounts are the same on the '08 SG? I have 33,000 miles on it.

                    Crap, sorry I just now saw this HH.
                    He replaced it and it didn't really help. He's since been told (by a Harley service guy) that it's a known problem that the MOCO is kinda turning a blind eye towards. I think he said the crankshaft bearings but I'm not positive.
                    I'll see him tonight and will give him you hello
