Which Front motor mount for a RG 96" ?

I have a Road Glide 96" 2007 .
The bike rides perfect when it's on the road without any vibrations ,
but as soon as the engine is at idle speed , it shakes like hell

I've replaced the stock front motor mount ( OEM partnr 16207-79D ) , but this mount is exactly the same type of which came out ( brend : Lord J-21920 made in china )

Now i tend to install an aftermarket motor mount , but which is the very best ?
....Velva Ride , Alloy Art , Pro Glide , Paughco , Drag Specialties ????

I want to get rid of that silly idle shakings , I feel ashame on it

yesterday , I went to a local harley-workshop , which had the Pro-Glide montor mount on the shelf , so I could inspect that part myself in my hands, to see if it maybe could solve my problem.
Well , that Glide-Pro mount will probably solve ANY FEELING of vibration , because it is almost softer than a marshmallow,
but it won't fix my problem of that excessive wiggling/shaking engine during idle rpm.
So my decision for now is, to stick to the original OEM "D-type" mount , which is more solid and stiffer compared to the jelly poly-urethane aftermarket motor mounts.

On my road king I installed a Glide Pro mount and it settled down the excessive vibration.

I've tried a couple of different mounts on my FXR's and in the end I've found the -d mount to be the most desirable.

With that said, Evo's usually don't vibrate that bad at idle. Are you sure that something else isn't going on with the motor?

90 HP tells the tail. It's bigger than stock and prolly has a long duration cam in it. Your trying to domesticate a wild thing.

mmmmm ,....you could be right about that ,

.....in comparison with the other bikes ( even some newer types ) of my club-members , I'm the winner when it comes to acceleration .

Well ,anyway , I won't give up for now .
Maybe a motor mount with a little bit firmer rubber-compound ( like the cheap made-in-taiwan Drag Specialties ) will give a solution/compromise.

For that 20 euros , it's worth a try
