I asked the dealer mechanic to check and re torque the engine mount. He doesn't know the setting. :surprise: I check internet found out that to install engine slider torque setting is 35 ib/inch. So he re torque using that number. After that my handle bar vibrate less but the seat and tank vibration remain the same.

3 engine mount on each side. 1 in front and 2 at the back. Anybody know the torque spec for all mounting ?

Wow, I'm really surprised the dealer doesn't have the service manual, or at least a phone to call the distributor for torque specs! Where are you located?
According to the service manual (available on ebay, if you or the dealer needs one), all engine mounting bolts are 44 N-m/36 ft-lbs torque.

The difference from 32-36ft-lbs wouldn't make a noticeable difference in machine tooled steel that the motor mounts are made of. I torque mine to 35ft-lb and call it good. Unless you keep your torque wrench calibrated, you will mostly likely find it to be off anyway.
