Engine/Trans Alignment

I'm going to guess that this isn't a good indication of things being aligned properly. Ever since I've installed the 200 rear tire I have noticed that the belt occasionally makes contact with the tire while backing up and there's very little room 1/16" between the belt and tire going forward. Done some research and come to the conclusion that I have bad engine/trans mounts. Anyone else have an opinion??

I don't think it is an issue backing up .. Maybe wrong , could be wrong ...

Engine/Trans Alignment

You're right backing up the belt will track closer to the wheel but mine tracks to right in both directions.

The right side of the swing arm is higher and more rearward than the left side which I think (???) would cause Trans drive gear to track the belt to the right vice left, but I could be wrong.

Just looking for opinions before I drop $450 on new glide pro engine and transmissions mounts.

Here's a great way to align the frame and the wheels. Check the motor mounts as well, but this will probably help too.
