Default RE: 4 stroke motor mount question

I had the same problem on a SSE with a Saito 82. Broke something like 3 SIG glass filled mounts. I ended up polyurethane gluing thin brass to the sides, and screwing them in to the mount with small coarse screws. Haven't broke one since. I found it was the lower RPMs that did the mounts in. Soft mounting with rubber inserts like the J'Tec also helps considerably. I soft mount all my 4 strokes if I can.
