Currently in need of some sleeves/spindles/bushes for my later rear suspension linkage as the parts that are worn are no longer available from Yamaha. These are: 2off 18mm OD x 10mm ID x 70.8mm long & need to be hardened to run in needle roller bearings and 1off 20mm OD x 10mm ID x 25.8mm long and this one runs in a plain bush. Local engineering firms not interested, unless, of course, I can find one that has a racing outlook on things :)
actualy thinking about it I think the linkage is the stock TDR one so scrap that
the bushes from the old style linkage are exactly the same -you can transfer them over if you have an old one - or source a second hand early style one for the bushes. The ones in the photo dont look too bad ? They dont need to be perfect -they only swivel a fraction when in use - as long as the linkage swivels when assembled it will be ok. New seals and bearings from Yambits may do the trick.
Yes, I can use the old ones for now, the spherical bearing is on order as it is very worn, just want to do a thorough job
