Re: motor mount torque value

I got mine pretty damn tight. Gotta remember that they do have to break in, mine had a little more vibrations than I was used to at first. After a few miles, its much better.

The mount will vibrate, it will lessen with time. Ive had mine since march, and it rarely vibrates bad enough to notice.
