Shock bushing replacements

Post by djohns » Wed Jul 27, 2022 2:37 pm

Reading previous posts concerning old crumbling shock bushings I see that the problem still is out there. A few old rubber bushings on eBay which maybe as hard as my existing ones are on my CA77,72,95 and both Cl’s. I obtained a 12” rod of urethane to try to turn some but it’s tough to machine. I tried to contact Clauss Studios in California who sell numerous molded parts for our Hondas but never get a response back!!!! I offered to send bushing samples and shock eye dimensional dwgs but still no response. First off has anyone been able to contact them? Second has anyone played with machining urethane for this purpose or making molds? Clauss shows top rear bushings for the CB72/77. Why would they not consider others? Between me and my buddies we probably have 50+ bikes (small 50cc to 450) eventually needing replacements, mostly 95/72/77/160’s. HELP
