Engine mounts

A question to the wise. The right hand engine mount on my MC has as usual sprung a leek so it needs replacing. Is it worth spending the extra and replacing it with a proper vibrotech one or just use a oem part ? The car is used for fast road work with the occasional track day.

I just put a solid 3/4" rubber donut on top of mine and added poly bushes to the other mounts. Works well for rallying.
