Under the covers on the side of the leg there's rubber mounts that cushion shocks between the leg and the saddle.

Are these a huge job to replace or is it a job that someone with a tiny bit of technical knowledge could do? I take it these stop vibrations etc coming through.

It might be a huge job it might not-depends how corroded it is in there. Probably better to pay someone as a foulup can be very expensive. You may need an engine crane depending on the state of it in there.Alternatively you might get away with just a jack and straps but it's a bit dodgy and it'll take more than one person to do it.

Yes. They should be bolts with thick rubber sleeves on. When they deteriorate they let the engine slop about.
