Motor Mounts parts needed, ideas?

The motor mounts that I have are pretty brittle and yes need replacing but at 15$ a pop and needing several I was wondering if there was an alternative to the 'genuine' part. When I plugged in the part number to ebay ( 92075-1738 ) there were a few for sell but around the same ridiculous price per mount and there weren't enough to buy anyways. So, was wondering if there may be another part that would work just not genuine?

The stock ones are serrated rubber....what we used to do is to cut/burn the old off of the steel, then replace with a suitable rubber hose. IMO the serrations are overkill and just allow more surface area for dryrot...put the rubber hose on with a lil lithium grease, and they'll last the life of the bike, and probably your own too.....

Note : only use nylon reinforced hose....its available at any hydraulics shop, and at many auto parts places...if the size is hard to find, try a heavy equipment dealer.

Cool idea, and probably the cheapest
