Dynas are tricky and handling is key. They are more popular now than ever and the later units were tougher with a new frame, 49mm front ends and cast swingarms.

That’s the way to go, but it’s also, especially with big inch twin cam engines, tougher on the stock motor mounts, which are handling keys.





If you feel your bike being pulled to the left or to the right, there’s a very good chance you power train is out of alignment. And guess what, there’s not much you can do about that with your current set up.
Motor Mounts from Custom Cycle Engineering

Dyna Rear Motor Mount. Designed primarily for stability. Our Dyna Rear Motor Mount is your best choice to stop the dreaded Dyna dance. By limiting the torsional and lateral movements of the swing arm stability is greatly enhanced.
 
When combined with our Front Motor Mount or equator powertrain alignment is achievable, something never offered by the factory or aftermarket. Our mount has a 60% greater mounting surface area, will not twist on its mounting surface like O,E,M or others.

Installation was a 20-minute grape. Jeremiah and James slipped his bike up on a Bikernet lift and hoisted it in the air. They used a shop jack to raise the tranny just slightly, while leaving the shocks in place. This took the pressure off the motor mount coupled from the transmission to the swingarm.





They made sure the jack would not be in the way from dropping the massive rubber mounted unit out from under the trans.





They unbolted the stock unit and dropped it down but didn’t lose track of the fasteners. The CCE unit comes with some of the fasteners but not all of them. “We like the stock Allen head self-tapping units the factory uses to the frame,” Tim, from CCE said. “They are easy to reach with an Allen socket and an extension.”



They dropped out the stock unit, cleaned the area and installed the modified, heavy-duty, rebuildable CCE rear motor-mount. Rick the previous owner wanted to add some shine to the area, so he used heavy-duty stainless fasteners to the swingarm. Our team tapped the unit another ½-inch and everything slipped back together.





The one he removed didn't appear to be damaged or cracked.

The CCE unit is self-rebuildable. Any bike owner can pull his CCE unit out of his bike and add a new cast rubber unit from CCE and replace it.

“In all the time we’ve built these puppies, I’ve only helped two owners rebuild their mounts,” Tim said. “They easily last over five years.”


“I replaced the front one with a new stock unit,” James said. “Tim is helping me order the CCE front job. But even with the stock unit up front and the CCE mount in the rear my handling tightened, no more wobbles. The new unit is slightly stiffer, so I noticed some more vibration, but that may smooth out as it breaks in.”

There you have it. Reach out to CCE regarding their mounts for Dynas and FXRs. Also, they make the finest tall rubber-mounted dog-bone risers for all Harleys. And if you need longer tubes for any glide, they have center-ground units.
