Just looking to avoid spending $50 for new OEM ones if possible.

Seems like a lot of work to save $35. Carb cleaner and parts solevant will swell rubber, but it shrinks back after some time. I wouldn't count that anything that swells it doesn't also deteriorate it!

Go ahead Snowy! Need me to find you a stick?

I didn't want to sound nasty....or bitter...or twisted....but I am so it just comes across that way anyhow.

An interesting tidbit/factoid from my swapping and measuring and playing with parts:

With the RMZ swingarm and the use of the DR axle with collars to suit the swingarms normally larger axle size, I can now use either a 17 inch cush drive hub (with a drive side spacer either cut down, or just using a DRZ/RMZ one), or an 18 inch wheel straight out of the DRZ (no cush drive - but it's for the dirt so is of no consequence when using full knobbies anyway), or I can use the RMZ 19 inch wheel (with the larger axle).

Now I know the 19 may sound unappealing for many reasons, but under some circumstances it could be useful. Think some of the very specific tyres made for the bikes intended to run 19s.

But, most importantly, what it gives me is choice. Something the DR doesn't have standard.

As I already have 2 cush drive 17s, all I need to do is eBay some 18s and 19s and I have a full range.

This just gets easier and easier.

Too bad some don't want to play.

Seems like less work (and less messy) than cleaning, drying and reoiling an air filter. Or does everybody here just buy a new filter because it is only $20?

My DR is a '91 so $50 OEM replacement cost is correct as they cost more than the newer version cush rubber inserts. $50 buys me enough gas for 1,000 miles on the DR. Economy's tight, money short, so why buy new if not absolutely neccessary? I'd rather spend it riding.

Anyway thanks for the replies but I already had plenty of ideas to try. I posted here looking for someone with experience that has already done it.

I did not feel comfortable with Jesse's bracket less the vibration damping for the GSXR muf.
So I incorporate a Grommet la MXRob (he uses Oring).
But around 500 miles the grommet keeps rotting away from the heat and vibration.

The version 2 was using a reinforced water hose (much thicker/harder material)
and a piece of hose clamp on top the water hose to protect the GSXR muf from cutting into it.
So far so good

I don't think my wife would take to kindly to boiling up motorcycle parts in the kitchen. But all kidding aside I think most just think that you would not end up with any kind of improvement, or might even make things worse (by making the cushions to brittle, or to soft, or even coming apart). If I was to do anything, other then new, it would be to take Rusty's suggestion and use cut up inner-tubes to act as spacers. Good luck.

Rasthomas, Nice, but, why one picture when there should have been two, and I am not talking about a picture of a lunch plate.

You know the saying, "no picture, it didn't happen."

Maybe a "flatspot" would be more accurate. I drive a fuel injected v strom 650 alot and I am most likely just accustomed to the instant response on the strom? If I am am going 50 mph on the dr650 and I quickley twist the throttle to increase speed there is a slight pause before aqcceleration occurs. Very slight? Is that normal with that bike? it is new with less than 1000 miles and fully stock.
