    Hi Mario,

    I have 2 thoughts:

    1. Try to get rubber mounts from Harley Davidson, or inquire if they are different than China.

    2. Maybe if you needed to change 1 rubber mount, another needed it also; there are 3 total. If the new rubber from China was stiffer, it could make the other 2 rubber mounts less effective. Change all 3 for consistency.

    Please provide any photos of your bike in Lebanon!
