Our engines are stressed members just like K engines or Ducati engines. I would weld my raised engine mounts and stress the engine properly. You move the engine forward by making an aluminum spacer between the drive shaft and the tranny. Why? To move the weight bias forward. Just raising the engine moves it reward slightly. That they do not need. The spacer is pretty easy to make and you can keep the pivot point and the drive shaft real close to where it is originally. Then you run the drive shaft dry. I have worked on race bikes thusly set up with tons of track time no problem.
