$150? Yikes, will have to think about that.

When you assemble the case halves, there is a captive part of the motor mounts that WILL NOT COME OUT. It has a half moon slot so it looks like it SHOULD come out, but won't. An isolator I guess.

Or do you have to use more force?

This is how the mounts sit in the engine.

Not sure which part are you mentioning.

Both front and rear isolator pairs fit in the holes which are in the cam chest side of crankcase.
Purely theoretically you could mount only right side case in the frame on isolators, and then bolt the primary side on it.
( Don't know if that would really work, though.)

It's no 10 in the diagram. When you bolt the crankcase halves together, it becomes captive. So you couldn't replace motor mounts at a future date?

It is not captive at all. I definitely didn't split the cases to replace the isolators. The part number 10 (isolator mount) is just bolted on. It is exactly there where you need to start to replace rear isolators. Unbolt this, pull out left side rubber isolator, unbolt the locking plate, remove shaft. There is a flange on the shaft that rests against the case, only way out is to the left. Then move rear of the motor to the left side as far as it goes, and up, to dislodge the right side rubber, which sits in the recess in the frame.
All this of course is with the pivot bolts and swing arm out of the way.
I find it strange though that the mount gets caught as in being captive (with you cases being split). Do you still have the rubber and shaft in place in the case?
If not, that mount cannot be there either, as it is the topmost thing of the whole assembly, directly under swing arm. Actually, how would the motor come out if this was still bolted on to the frame ?

Well, after having written and posted the above, I realized that Sportsterpedia would be better source of information, visual as well as verbal.
