So you got your bike built, and noticed way to much flex in the bushings on your newly built bike. Be it a cafe racer, street tracker, restoration, chopper or bobber, no one wants to wait on the front wheel to turn while the bars are moving around like a chunk of rope attached to the trees. You have probably already removed the stock 35 year old rotten bushings from your upper triple tree and replaced them with aftermarket rubber bushings from the "Popular Supplier Of Inferior XS650 Parts" right? And within a year, those bushings were feeling like a wet sponge and falling apart right? Yeah, I've been there and done that, as many of you have.
Now you can fix that slop with these newly developed Solid Riser Bushings.
Machined in-house from solid 6061 Aluminum, these new solid bushing include rubber o-rings to help fight vibrations and provide a snug fit. Also included is all new stainless hardware (minus the large washer, it is plated). Might as well clean up that old cruddy hardware while you are at it, so I provide new washers, lock washers, jam nut, top tree bolts and cotter pins. This is a complete kit, no need to hunt around for new hardware or reuse the old corroded stock stuff. Now available as a full kit for $75.00 (These can be bored out for use with Harley Style Risers as well, no extra cost)
Kit with all new Hardware
Hardware Assembly Order - Ditch the stock stuff...
Easy to install- Put a light coat of oil on the O-Rings,
Then press the bushing into the upper tree.
Once all 4 are installed, clean up the riser (that old rubber tends to build up
on the riser studs, get that crud off there)
Use the new hardware and reassemble your bars and risers. Ride with confidence.
This is a limited production run. Due to the amount of material to be machined and the cost of materials, I will not keep a large amount of these in stock. If there is more interest, I will reconsider.
