Hi Guys,

I have recently replaced the rear shock on Mr O

Just fitted new bushes as well but just noticed there is still a bit of play in the rear,

Im thinking I need a couple of new spacers,
The bits between the shock bush & the actual swingarm........

I need 2 spacers , both 19mm long with a hole to accept an m8 bolt

Anyone got anything suitable? :wink:

Cheers

I think 65-70mm, have a nut here off the bolt thats fitted,

I think the bolt has bent slightly because the spacers are a bit wonky and squeue-wiff :lol:
