Welcome to the forum.
Sounds daft but have you tried the local Yamaha dealer for the bushes? Many T'Cat parts still seem to be available
Failing that I have used Wemoto a fairbit

Regarding stud removal, they can be a b@st@rd. Have you left them soaked in penetrating oil for a few days before trying shift them?

Thanks for this, Local GT Dealers in Plymouth can get the bushes but they're not cheap, great service from Ryan in the spares dept though. As for the studs, I've tried penetrating oil, heat all the usuals but no joy.

When I did the swing arm bushes on my bike some years back I got the parts from Yambits - about half the price of official Yamaha parts.

I think you're talking about part no.2 in the diagram ? (47X-22184-00)

Fowlers sell them for £42.48 each, but like you said, they are quite expensive.

Yambits have a kit which includes the two needle roller bearings that you probably need as well.

PlusGas is my favourite to help remove stubborn exhaust studs. Welding a nut onto the end of the stud can help, but that can also increase the chance that you will shear the stud, too.
