Vibration Isolation

      • ICE Battery / Oil Tank Mount

      • OEM Style Vibration Mounts

 

Battery / Oil Tank Mount mod

 

Product Description

 

Typical vibration isolation mounting devices are used for mounting oil tanks and battery boxes are not rated for the actual applied loads. These devices provide vibration isolation however when used for structural purposes they often fall short of the intended requirements resulting in mount failure. Ice has developed a device employing a typical mount combined with superior structural characteristics. The original vibration style mount is used however it is rotated and mounted between two brackets. The weight of the battery or oil tank is applied as a compression load to the "isolator" as opposed to the shear loads applied in most OEM configurations. Analysis and extensive testing of the isolator mount in the ice configuration verifies that an isolator will provide full structural support of the battery box or Oil Tank even if the elastomer fails. A failed isolator is held captive (in position) and the load (battery / Tank weight) remains supported by the "ice battery box/oil tank mount mod".

The typical double studded rubber vibration isolation mount can support approximately between 6-12 lbs shear load and 25-30 lbs under compression. These "typical ratings" are effected by age, material, exposure to oil & gasoline and of course, the quality of the device itself. Unfortunately, many of the devices installed on motorcycles are of questionable quality and many are manufactured form inferior materials (Asian suppliers are the norm). The battery/tank mounts subject to failure are typically installed to attach the battery and oil tank. If you are experiencing problems with other mounts try installing good quality mounts, align assemblies as well as possible.  Install the ice rear battery box/oil tank mount mod and end your sagging battery box problems.

Advantages gained after installing the ICE Battery/Oil Tank Mod:

  • The battery box rear mount is an inexpensive and permanent fix.
  • The battery box rear mount mod is easy to install requiring no modification to original hardware.
  • The ice battery box mount mod will provide secure structural support for the battery or tank.
  • Installation of the battery box mount mod increases the reliability of all existing vibration mounting isolators because of the increased structural integrity provided by the new ICE mount.
  • All contents used in the kit are made in the USA and all material processing is performed in our shop. 

 

Rubber Sandwich Style

Isolation Mount

 

(American Made)

 

OEM style Rubber Isolation Mount

 

Product Description

 

Typical vibration isolation mounting devices are the double studded rubber sandwich.  These devices provide vibration isolation however when used for structural purposes they often fall short of the intended requirements. Ice has developed a device with dampening capabilities combined with superior structural characteristics. Unfortunately, many of the devices installed on motorcycles are of questionable quality and many are manufactured form inferior materials.  (Most are manufactured in Asian locations.)  After filling a bucket with rubber mounts available through distributors  ICE has returned to American Made products.   We offer a quality product that will interchange with your existing mounts.  We offer a quality product but we don't claim to fix your alignment or excessive loading problems.  

Typically each vibration isolation mount can support approximately between 6-12 lbs shear load  and 25-30 lbs compression. These �typical ratings� are effected by age, material, exposure to oil & gasoline and of course, the quality of the device itself. If you are experiencing problems with other mounts try installing good quality mounts and align assemblies as well as possible.    If your problems are severe or repetitive, try Installing the ICE Battery / Oil Tank Mount PN#  95-1031.

The neoprene rubber mount has dual capabilities for mounting.  The mount has a 1/4 -20 stud and a 1/4-20 threaded insert imbedded in the other side of the mount.  This provides the capability to adjust and provide better alignment for the assembled parts.

Replace your failed OEM Isolation rubber mounts with American made mounts and experience these benefits:

  • The ICE rubber mount is easy to install requiring no modification to original hardware (other that the addition of a 1/4 -20 bolt of correct length.
  • All components of the rubber mount are made in the USA.
  • The ICE rubber mount is an inexpensive fix.
