Ah gotcha. I'd support it because I'm paranoid about it, but if you're not as paranoid as me, you can remove one side, put the bolt back in (without tightening it), then remove the other side and put the bolt back in as well so you don't have to support the motor at all.
Or you could be cheap like me, go to your local hardware store and get a can of plastidip (they make it in spray cans), put some newspaper around the bike so that it doesn't overspray on it, and spray them. Plus when you get tired of the color, you can peel it right off.
