Can you please direct me to where I can buy some new rear shock absorber mounting rubbers. Mine are in two half's and both are damaged.

Thank you

might be worth contacting Hagons
they seem to keep lots in stock, they sent me a new set for my shocks as the ones provided had the wrong internal diameters
if not they are sure to know where to get them

if you can measure the internal and external diameters
you might be able to source them from a suspension specialist, lots of the classic car companies supply bushes like that for tie rods
if not there are a couple of old ladies in Mandello that keep lots of old stock, but i cannot recall their address, its up a side street on the hill to the right of the factory just past the post office

I've tried a few suspension stockists. No luck. I will try classic car spares and then if no joy, bite the bullet and have some nylons sets made up.

Have you tried Gawa Guzzi? You could try a search on ebay for motorcycle suspension bushes
 of the same size.

Thank you very much guys. I had never heard of Gawa Guzzi. I have written to them to check the sizes. I have been tying all sorts in Google. Problem is that if you don't know what other models the rubbers fit you could be ordering the wrong ones. Always good to know where we can get spares!!

I would more think in terms of taking the route beginning "what are the dimensions I need" Big smile

I did. Its not as simple as it sounds. I have ordered some which are close. It seems that Gawa have some so if the ones I have ordered don't fit I will go to them. Thank you for your input, it's much appreciated.

Yeah think I know how you feel, hate it when I know exactly what I want but getting other people to understand or provide info.

I think I am now going to find somebody who can turn down some nylon blocks to fit.

Found a site selling standard dirt bike rear suspension bushes. They fit pretty well so I am going ton give them a go. £6 for four is a very good price.
