Valkyrie Rear Shock absorber bushes

Post by Aussie81Interstate » Sat May 19, 2018 9:33 pm

Hi guys,

When I had my rear tyre replaced recently the mechanic mentioned I needed new shock absorber bushes on both rear shocks - he showed me one of them, but he didn't have the replacement parts.

I ordered the 4 bushes from Honda - $20.85 for 4.

Just replaced them this morning and used some red rubber grease on the fittings as well when re-installing.

Here is a picture of what the old ones were like - in a word - stuffed..
