    Default Honda CB250RS Cush Drive Bushes

    Evening all,

    A current project following a rest from my old Bantam is a 1980 Honda CB250RS, which is undergoing full restoration. I have managed to remove the worn out sprocket cush drive rubber bushes (after much cursing) and now I need to find new replacements. This seems to be easier said than done. David Silver do not list them and cannot get any (Now discontinued). I have ordered them twice online from two different ebay sellers and they have sent the wrong ones on both occasions (the much smaller ones for the Xl125 it appears) and don't seem to be able to help with the correct ones.

    Am I correct in saying that they have the same part number at the start and the difference is in the end part number? This could be where they are getting confused with their parts lists. I have not quoted any numbers I have left it to them.

    Anyway the point of my topic is : Where can I get them? I am running out of ideas would a supplier of rubber suspension car type bushes be any good? Would they be the right type? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Sorry to go on a bit I am getting a bit frustrated with this , Oh the joy of old bikes!

    Cheers John

    What are the part numbers? You can tell if they are bike specific by the model code, that would be indicated by the 3 letter/number code in the part number

    War story (and third hand at that!):

    A mate was an RAC patrolman back years ago. If quiet, he would drop into local [London] bike shops to pass the time.

    In one shop, the 'parts' man had been asked for a particular set of cams. The customer was desperate, had searched everywhere. Stores man didn't have any, and took customer at his word that there seemed to be none available anywhere. So he thought for a moment, then said "Come back in a week".

    He had six sets made. Customer (unknowingly) covered the costs, five sets profit. That was how Les Harris got started on his empire.

    So do you have enough of the dead bushes to get a batch made?
