So ive sent my swingarm to powder coat and knocked out all the bushes and bearings including the suspension linkage bushes and for genuine parts i priced it up at about 70 :( does anyone know where i could get pattern/cheap linkage bushes and swingarm needle rollers and oil seals? i may be able to salvage the swingarm bushes. cheers, jake

2-8 the swing arm bearings expect to pay about 80 quid Toy, the other stuff on the suspension link arm I'm not sure as luckily mine were good, but maybe go with getting a decent 2nd hand one with good bearings already in it. and possibly the same with the swingarm, you can get swingarms second hand with decent bearings already in for around the 30 mark. You'll see how good the bearings are in the swingarm are, as its best to get them out before powdercoating, but block off the tubes well.

Thats what I meant when I said cover the tubes Wozz, for the headstock I used some threaded bar about 6" and some 3/8 plywood, cut out 2 discs, using a tank cutter, then chamfered them both so they say in the tube sealing it, the threaded bar ran through them both with a nut on either side clamping them up. Same with the swing arm but using 4 plywood discs, also a good idea to use some old bolts for any captivated nuts on the frame/swingarm if powdercoating too, or you'll be going round afterwards with a 6mm tap, cleaning all the threads.

Check for the wear and only replace the ones that need it. As long as they get greased regularly you should be ok. I also used a socket and a G clamp to press bushes out etc. Will remember that one for the head stock bearings, sounds good.

I replaced all the swingarm and linkage bearings for about 50. I just measured the id and od of the bearings and shopped about on the net. The swingarm has 2 bushes next to the outer bearings that cost a fortune, I just machined some from acetal as they are not that load bearing.
