    BearKat engine mount plate rubbers.

    Any of us rebuild the plate rubbers on these bikes? Far as I can tell they are 1" × 3/4 and 3" long rubbers. The plate does not come out of frame. Think I can slide rubbers on one side then cut then reweld other side after mounts installed? fast and not burning too bad.any ideas?
