Peugeot 103 Engine stabilizer

After seeing how much vibration the bike had while running I knew I needed to stabilize the engine. Its important the the engine doesnt swing at all or the rear variator wont work as it should.
It turned out to be an easy fix. I used a bit of scrap metal to joint the frame to the exhaust mount and its super rigid now.

  1. did you ad the spring like on a single variated tranny setup, dont get me wrong i will probally do something similar but i believe the stock spring also aided in this issue

  3. Nick the video below with all the vibration had the spring installed. Ive run the bike since intalling the engine brace and there is almost no vibration now so its done the trick. Ill post a video on my next day off.
