    Default Engine Mounts??

    Theres a loud clucking coming from my engine bay and the gear stick jolts when i tickle the revs in low gear also when i back off power too.

    Further more my rad pegs have snapped which i presume is down to this.

    Is there a common engine mount that its likely to be and is this a hard job to rectify what would the cost be if a garage did this.

    Thanks people

    One at the frt of the engine below the rads would be the easy ones to check.

    Both lol
    Might not be that obvious to look at untill its under load
    So you can either use a bar to check for play, or if you're a nutta stand in front whilst you let your bestest friend dump the clutch

    also check to see if the bolt has fallen out!! Had one where i took the underbelly tray off the bolt was laying there! and the one above it was loose too..

    With the rads, you can get a bottom peg repair kit for it so you dont need a new rad
