Blog / Trying to find the best way to mount the motor
A while ago a friend of mine came by, he is in the metalworking business. Together we went looking for the best solution to mount the motor and if he could make a mount for it. He already had a few ideas but he would go and make a drawing of it first. Ended up being a few drawings since a few modifications had to be made.
Meanwhile I received the final drawing and I'm checking if it can actually be fitted this way. First off, here's the drawing.
The 2 blocks that you can see will be welded on the rear swingarm.
Here you can see where the motor will be placed. As you can see there is no need for modifications with the suspension, it fits perfectly in there.
And I again made a paper model to see if the motor mount would fit. Still think it's the best way to measure.
Only on the bottom left it will get a bit more sloped and only 2 mounting holes for mounting on the swingarm since the frame on the left side of the motor is in the way.
The motor mount can be made now. Will have to get the materials myself first, after that it would probably take around 2 weeks to make it. It'll probably become the best looking part on the quad bike.
