Hey guys just about to start on the engine mounts on my frame.

What thickness do you guys do your engine mounts?
engine is a gsxr 600 k1-k3 motor

Ive seen 1/4" unboxed and Ive also seen what looks like boxed 1/8" or 3/16" before but wanted to get a baseline for what is acceptable structurally.

Also im sorry if this has a specific thread covering it already, search didnt turn anything up for me

I assume this is for you Gsf400 frame?

I think the plates on my old Kz are 1/8" mild steel. I say 3/16" mild steel is plenty. Going too thick and welding the mounts to the frame tubes may not be easy without blowing a hole through.

Just my opinion, I could be wrong.

Later, Doug
