    Actually, that is kind of a thing. But predominantly on 450Rs. (and X/RX bikes that are raced) I’m not convinced it’s a real big deal on an Elle. I just don’t see them being ridden at redline consistently. But I could be wrong.

    Some say they can feel it and it makes a difference. I’ve not noticed any change in vibes or handling. But I’m old and slow.

    I didn't know it was a thing. I grew up on sport bikes and transitioned to dirty bikes about 13 years ago. I'm also not a tinker'er. I just ride em and fix it when it breaks.

    Those aluminum frames have a certain amount of flex designed-in, and the engine mounts are a part of that. I did a re-torque early on after everything was good and broken-in. I’ve not felt a need to do another.
