Before you get all excited. I think what people are trying to say is, It's not a good design to have a floating mount in the rear and have the plate solidly mounted to the oil tank. And then leave the motor mounting completely out of the equation which KTM used on the stock plate.

Now if one wants to modify a BD one as some have done, well that's fine, fabricate away. But there are alternatives out there. Geez.
