Title: Help wanted GP - XT Adventures

Saw this post on the wilddogs facebook page. Sure a GP dog could help or at least point them in the right direction.

Hey everyone, we (XT Adventures) are currently in Joburg and plan to head towards Botswana soon. The problem we have is that the rubber bushings of the handlebar of my Yamaha XT660R are worn out (bike has over 137000km on the clock). A new part (whole clamp as Yamaha doesnt provide the bushings) takes 3 weeks to get here. The Bike Hospital has nothing to offer so we were wondering if anyone has an idea where to get (maybe fabricate just the bushings?) the clamp or just bushings a bit quicker?

Cheers
Xenia & Tinu

Kortie,

I'm not on facebook so maybe you can relay this to them: get epoxy glue or prattley steel and replacve the rubbers with this?
No vibration damping anymore but it should keep them able to continue!

Just had a thought. I'm sure there are rubber tap washers of similar size which could be made to work.
