There are some old posts about the PartsNMore bronze swingarm bushing not fitting. The ID is OK, but the OD is too big.

OldBikeBarn also sells them:

As does DiabloCycle:

Does anyone know if any of these options currently fit without modification?

HVCcycle sells bronze bushings for Yamahas & Kawasakis, but not Suzuki.
They have a warning: “The Bushings must be pressed into the swingarm. If the Bushings are struck with a hammer or pounded in the Bushings will be damaged”

That might be the issue with the Suzuki bushings I found — they might need pressed in.

I ordered the stock Suzuki bushings & will use those unless I have a solution for bronze bushings that don’t need pressed in.
