Bad Front Motor Mount?

Lately my RG has been shaking excessively at idle. Tonight while checking the lights on the bottom of my floor boards, I noticed the rubber on the front motor mount is torn and split.

Check out "Glide Pro", $98 urehtane front motor mount, way better than the Harley stocker, not susceptable to the spilled oil from changing the filter either.

Earlier HD motor mounts used to get damaged to the rubber from the engine oil, since then HD changed the components in the rubber on the front motor mount making them oil resistant.
No need for a special motor mount just get the new motor mount from HD. The new motor mounts last forever now.
