I saw it was longitudinally mounted.. that's a LOT of inertia pushing on one side of that bike LOL. Not to mention the vibration that was quite apparent from the engine and the bike as a whole.

Fortunately, I'll be mounting mine transverse [across the frame] so the inertia won't be such a problem besides trying to flip the bike over the front forks LOL. Maybe I can mount the engine so it rotates backward and it'll help me do a whoooooolie!
