    Was going to ask if it was the Montana . Isolating vibration can be tricky with a ram mount. Another option would be to use a hydraulic pipe mount on the handle bars then the Ram Mount which would isolate some of the vibration?

    Cheers Glen. I'll remember that one.

    John, hydraulic pipe mount indeed could be the answer. I'll try Nolathane and see what happens. It's such a pretty red.

    Yeah a few people on the recent ride suggested the Touratec setup. Broke up the visa card a few weeks ago.

    </td><td class="alt1" id="td_post_21656057" style="border-right: 1px solid #575757"> I hope you didn't spend much time or money on the cush hub conversion because the XRR already has a cush drive that is the best ever made...it's on the clutch.

    Have you ridden it much with the double cush? Seems like it might have a lot of drivetrain slop now?

    If you take the plate off the back of yours I think you'll find that you already have one.

    well there ya go aye. I had heard of an internal cush on the clutch before but had never seen it. how goods that. the service manual has no description of it, nor does service Honda show any parts for it.
