Dammit boomerguy, you have just replied to a 2015 thread/post!!! But what the hell, it's been a fairly well talked about thing whether to replace with stock or go for the poly ones.
I replaced my fronts with poly and thought i had more vibration, but after setting my carb up properly after reading sportsterpedia it all smoothed out ok. Slightly weird but it did.
The rears are still good after 14 years and about 25kms on them, so when they eventually go, i'll replace with stock. (if still available!)

Yeah, I reply to old posts. I read old books and watch old movies. Heck, I even listen to my old vinyl records from the 60's. Whether information or entertainment is old or not, is irrelevant. I'm new to this forum and still learning about my new-to-me old bike. I appreciate all the input I can get and I don't mind sharing what little experience I can.

Heh heh,
I have poly mounts on my 85 C-10.
Motor, tranny and body.
It got rid of the "Chevrolet Sway".
But the vibration eventually ripped the poly motor mounts in half.
Tranny and body mounts still good though.

Only ribbin' you mate! don't take any offence!
Loads of info to read through for sure and a lot give food for thought, although most seem to cost me money as i think "i'll have to do/check that now"!

No offense taken. I enjoy this forum. It seems everybody has a sense of humor and I like it.

Although I've been riding since 1964 and owned all kinds of motorcycles in all shapes, sizes, styles and countries of origin, I've finally gotten around to getting my first (probably only because I love it) Sportster. The bigger brothers are OK but the Sportster just scratches my itch. My 2005 XL883 Standard is vintage enough that I can work on it and modern enough to be really dependable. Anything after 2006 just doesn't appeal to me. It's the best of both worlds. Learning everything I can about it and the history of the Sportster in general has become a passion. I think I've, "drunk the kool-aid".
