Did you tighten the mounts yet? If so, by loosening them some, it will allow
you a bit of "wiggle" room. Also - consider loosening the 3-bolts that
pass through the inner-fenders into the mounting bracket a little as well.
In addition, make sure you don't have the mounts backwards... That can
reposition the motor some.
