Upper engine hanger

Ive recently managed to start my bike after buying it non functioning. After putting the engine on the frame, i noticed that the upper engine hangers I have do not line up correctly with the cylinder head mount. Is there any method to attaching the hangers or do I just have the wrong size? Many parts on this bike are mismatched from other years.

And what model year is your bike/frame? Putting that info in your signature helps when you have questions. See my signature for how to do it.

IIRC, the first generation frame upper engine hangers will not fit a second generation engine.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Putting your bike year and model in your signature helps others help you!

Its a 1986 250. I think the bracket i have is for a second generation rebel. Im on mobile right now, but i will add that in my signature soon. Thanks!

Assuming you have the correct brackets, if it's just a hair off you'll need a second set of hands to "lift" the engine up so you can slide the bolts through (the frame actually is THAT flexible). If it's more than a hair off you probably have the wrong generation of brackets.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

I found, assembling it loose helps get these bolts through. I had the same problem. get front and rear bolts in loose, jiggle engine while inserting top plates, then tighten them all up.

I love bikes, games, and women, not in any particular order.
