Slim; received! :)

The hole through the centre of em's bigger than the originals though, so they're not tight on the shock. Reckon I need to find something to make up the space, or will they be ok? :?

how much bigger ?

i guess its an ods

the cups will keep it in place , i cut them about 5 mm longer than they needed to be , so you can put more preload on them

not sure you could put anything in there ??

I appear to have found people who can help me!

SLIM,
I have a Merlin Soft tail bike that runs a single yellow elastomer with GIRVIN written on the side. It has shriveled to less than 2/3 of its origianl lenght and as such the bike is un-usable.

It is approx 60mm long, and 50mm diamater with approx 10mm hole in it.

Would your elastomers be appropriate as from what i have read they seem to be used in pairs and mine is singular. I am not familier with the shore hardness/durometer rating.

Any advice greatfully recieved.

the ones i have are 40 mm diameter and i can cut them to any length you need

the hole is 13 mm , and will be ok on your frame

the difference in the internal diameter is not a problem , unless it is BIG

the outside difference makes no difference

post a pic of the set up , does it have cups for instance ?

they are 70 shore hardness , how heavy are you ?

£15.00
