I don't know how true that is. I've been reloading my XL650 for a year now. It uses the strong mount and literally just sits on top of a dresser. It's heavy enough that it doesn't move much, and I always take the time to do the job right. I admit, I was hesitant at first (because I didn't have a reloading room or anything that I could put bolts through), but it really has worked out well for me. I wouldn't advise it to anyone who had the space anyways to go ahead and mount the press... I can pick up my press of the dresser and have it stowed away in a closet in 10 seconds or so. Reloading components and all.
