    Maybe it is me but I have been searching the forum and can not find the instructions on how to replace a front motor mount for my 2000 road king.

    I don't know if I just don't know how to word my search

    Is this something a borderline mechanically impaired person could do with a little help?

    It's listed under critical fasteners in maintenance section of the service manual. Replacing the front m.m. is not difficult. A floor jack is handy to support the front of the engine, and a service manual is good to make sure you get the stabalizer link(s) alignment right.

    Are you installing the Harley part or an after market mount?

    Thanks guys I really appreciate the input and recommendations. I read the postings here frequently but don't post all that much. Shy you know. I trust this something a regular guy can do. I am not completely mechanically challenged but somewhat limited in my skill set.

    This will alleviate the excessive vibration I hope

    I will be using an aftermarket part, expecting to order from J&P cycles that will replace or substitute for OEM.
