Can some body tell me the correct size for a 2007 1300S ? I would appreciate it, my phone is very slow when I try to search. I've been told Grainger has them in something better than rubber and I'm in need of some for my bike and the wifes shadow spirit. I tried searching but finally gave up. TIA

Thank You Sir,,, I did not know that..

I so dislike software writers..
A) I do not know a single browser that displays those characters as anything but plain characters (FF, Chrome, IE).
B) We have built-in smilies here, just look to the right of the textbox you're typing your reply in and click on one. Or type in : thumbup : . It gives you this:
C) Web Developers (aka "spiders") aren't the smartest people in the world. Which explains why most webpages in the world are sh*t. I've seen some of those "professionals" use MS Word to edit HTML pages!!!

Green Poly bushings are way better than black OEM Bushings. I used auto heater hose for awhile , better than Black OEM Bushings.

Whatever floats your boat...

Why not just go to a Honda dealer and get the right bushings? Looks like there is a Grainger and Honda dealers not far from you. The bushings are not that expensive and should match the internet prices.
