I have the service manual for my FLTRX, but I cannot find in the manual the rear engine mount technical specs on installation, removal, torque, and alignment.

I can only find the front motor mount information.

Anyone know where to find it, or is there any tech bulletins that might have this information?

Thanks.

The engine bolts to the transmission making the engine and transmission one component, the rear of the transmission is attached to the rear fork assembly (swingarm) and that is the rear engine/trans mount.
To remove the transmission case the rear fork has to be removed from the bike.

Thanks, I found it.

However, no we're does it say how the bolts should appear in the frame holes. The dealer loosened them and the motor has shifted backwards, so all 4 bolt heads are not centered, the are all the way back. And now I'm getting more vibration than before.

I wonder if I can just loosen all 4 again, and will be able to move the motor forward? My guess is no, but I think it's worth a try to get the motor mount shafts centered in the rubber mounts, etc.

Does anyone know or have tried this before?
