This is bullshit. Complete bullshit. I opened this thread because I expected to see today's (yesterdays work) pictures. Instead I just see more useless banter. I motion to lock this thread until more eye candy is provided :(

to protect the muffler bearings...duh!

didnt think the engines rocked that much with the MC engine mounts to require a flex? rather weld in a flex than fix a crack

We tend to put flex's on all the DPs. Preventing cracks is just nice. Don't feel like having to pull stuff because of an exhaust leak.

how's the engine going to flex when you're using the intercooler as a solid motor mount

Heh, its got a flex/hump coupler in there... and another for the other side.

Ideally i'll use the bike shock I picked up to make a dampener on the intake manifold side. But there is so much else to finish first.
