    I take back some of the bad things I've said about you. You're still an asshole but even you admit to that

    Does anyone put a jack under their engine from causing any shift or drop in it from removing the bolts? I just do so as a precaution. One at a time probably wont' do it, but that's the method I use.

    Nope, totally unnecessary. How do I know? because if the engine shifted after a bolt was removed, a jack would be necessary to put it back into place to get the bolt back in. If the bolt comes out and goes back in easily, nothing has moved.

    On a less precise level, lets say the engine does shift, what does it matter? You're using the mounting tabs on the frame as your reference, those are going to move unless the bike does so your resulting holes will still be in the same place.

    Going even LESS precise, lets say somehow the frame holes do move, they're not gonna move so much that your 1.5" hole is suddenly going to be so far out of position that it will matter. Unless you're cutting the hole with a couple thousandths' worth of clearance for the slider you're gonna have plenty of slop in the hole to compensate for any kind of error.
