So, never understanding the mind-set of the marketeers at Harley, I do note that they finally rubber mounted the Sportster after all those years.
Meantime they concluded years ago that the lack of rubber mounting was a "stylish" PLUS for the Softail models.
So, to give the "solid mounted" crowd a bit of a break in vibration throuhout the whole bike, they came up with the "TwinCam B"......a counter-balanced motor to combat the enherant vibes that are there.
WTF........An unneccesary move as I see it.......should have left them all rubber mounted.
