Who has one and what brand are you using? I have read so much about how they help older bikes but I'm still on the fence about them. My SG has 46,000 miles and I want to replace the front motor mount (bike vibrates more than normal). I know it's a Harley and it vibrates lol. I'm looking into the glide pro system.

I heard that the buell motormount is the same. Not 100% I never checked. I was gona use the glide pro in my old bike along with the progressive rear stabilizer that I had on it. The rear worked fine but I use to change front mount about once a year to keep it fresh.

I had a tru track, but took it off. I didn't like the extra vibrations it created and the handling didn't improve IMO. Having the stock hardware in good condition and adjusted properly should be enough.

I've got the older white Sta-bo bushings in my bike and a progressive touring link. I could tell a difference with both of them on my bike and would buy them again. I could tell a difference with it while on the interstate in corners and passing semis. I plan on buying or fabbing up a stabilizer for the front next.

I run an Alloy Art tri-mount front mount and a progressive rear , Made a huge improvement. The Alloy Art mount is a little pricey but I feel money well spent.

so did the front mount on the motor make a big difference in the feel of the front end? I would love to make my bike feel more stable at slow speeds and on the interstate...

I used the same setup and also noticed a improvment. What are these front mounts yall are speaking of?

Once I got it adjusted right it tightenedup bike nicely . Im not a real aggressive rider but this does make a difference. Hope this helps.
