I had the new nylon bushings delivered today. Even with my best endeavours, I couldn’t find ones which were 30mm long and had to opt for 35mm ones instead. This meant I had to cut the inner tube but 10mm to accommodate them. No hardship, they went in perfectly with a bit of persuasion and temporarily hung the swing arm with the shocks just to see what it would look like. I’ll need to replace the swing arm axle as somehow I knackered the thread 🙁
The axle is just under 12mm (I’m assuming it used to be 12mm) by about 192mm. Now I have to try and find one!
