I see Mike Forte has the rubber set on sale. Just wondering which type most are using and any issues with either.

I used rubber and regretted it. Going poly this time.

When you run hard, the engine block moves so much my pipes touched the bodywork!!

I had the same problem as 2savage, pipes hit the body. Get the poly ones. The rubber trans mount is fine.

The polys are stiff enough that the engine doesn't move too much, yet, pliant enough that you don't feel every vibration. Another vote for poly.

Good info. I forgot the side pipe movement would be an issue. Thanks.

I wore out a set of the convertible mounts and changed over to the poly ones. No difference in the vibration level. I did have to enlarge the sidepipe opening a little.
