Ok, these have been long awaited by many of you XS650 Builders and Riders.
So you got your bike built, and noticed way to much flex in the bushings on your newly built bike. Be it a cafe racer, street tracker, restoration, chopper or bobber, no one wants to wait on the front wheel to turn while the bars are moving around like a chunk of rope attached to the trees.
You have probably already removed the stock 35 year old rotten bushings from your upper triple tree and replaced them with aftermarket rubber bushings from the “Popular Supplier Of Inferior XS650 Parts” right? And within a year, those bushings were feeling like a wet sponge and falling apart right? Yeah, I’ve been there and done that, as many of you have.
Now you can fix that slop with these newly developed Solid Riser Bushings. Machined from solid 6061 Aluminum, these new solid bushing include rubber o-rings to help fight vibrations and provide a snug fit. Also included is all new stainless hardware (minus the large washer, it is plated).
Might as well clean up that old cruddy hardware while you are at it, so I provide new washers, lock washers, jam nut, top tree bolts and cotter pins. This is a complete kit, no need to hunt around for new hardware or reuse the old corroded stock stuff. (These can be bored out for use with Harley Style Risers as well, no extra cost – just let us know when you checkout)
* Now Available IN STOCK for 1/2″ ID Applications – no hardware included (for custom 1/2″ Risers, Harley Style, etc..)

I always replace the janky beat to snot OE risers with these gems! Super nice quality pieces and they totally renew the feel of the bike!

if you trust that 40 year old bushings are good, you are wrong!!! Super easy install and gives a great subtle finish to the triple trees!

Thought these wouldn’t make a huge difference, but boy was I wrong. The bike feels so much more responsive with these over the stock rubber bushings. Made the ride a lot more enjoyable. Install was a breeze.

Something you must do! Getting rid of that old slopiness! Can’t recommend highly enough.

Been running these for a while now. Great product and great service. Thanks Hugh!

I ran these on my XS chopper and these are hands down the best option on the market. Your old rubber bushings are garbage and so are the stock replacement options. Buy these once and you will never need a set of bushings for your XS or SR.
Look great, work great, so much better than the stock rubber ones!

I own two XS650s and this is the very first modification I do. It’s no secret that, the XS650 can be a bit “twitchy” at speed (especially in stock form). The stock rubber bushings (even if new) delay road feel and thus reaction time just enough to make it a bit unnerving. These solid bushings completely eliminate that issue and look good doing it. Install is quick and easy and makes a night and day difference. No bigger bang for your buck. Top quality item. Thanks Hugh!
