Hey kids! I'm going to make these mounts available for sale for anyone doing a similar conversion on a Yamaha 2-stroke frame. Here's the mount with a Mars ME0709:

$100 for 1/4" steel, unfinished. Aluminum (.34) is $60.

Looks nice. I'd add another set of 4 motor mount holes at 45 degrees so guys can have option in where the motor terminals locate. It'd make it more versatile at little more cost to you.

This makes me think - would it be worth compiling a database (or maybe just a thread) of motor mounts and CAD drawings? Could save people work and headache if others have already made a working design for their bike.

I'd be happy to post the ones for my gsx-r.

Yeah, that's a great idea. A universal format would be nice, say DXF?

I don't have Autocad, but I can export to DXF from Illustrator. Or straight to PDF (not universally editable, but universally readable).

Maybe we can move this thought to a thread some other place than Classifieds?
