Pull up on your rear fender & watch the lower part of the tank right above
the chain & see if you have any movement. . .
I've never carried a passenger or had a rear rack & i couldnt keep the updated
bushings tight. I made some Aluminum bushings & been running them for
well over 4,000 miles without any problems whatsoever.
If the tank/subframe is held firmly in place, it can't move to cause damage.
I could be wrong, but I've never heard of a Tank failure due to Delrin or
Aluminum bushings.

I'd love to Dog, BUT im no longer working at the job where i made them.
There's a guy on supermotojunkee.com making them out of Delrin which would
be just as good as alum. I did the homework & gave HIM the dimensions .
He is very reasonable. Im not afilliated to him all to him.

I don't have any movement in the tank at all either upper and lower after about 10000k mostly dirt touring and just fanging.

I've got a set of Mudders bolts which I'll replace and put the OEM ones in the spares bag. Also, if fitted the safari tank needs to come off (pr at least up) to get at the upper bolts.

While I'm at it I'll replace the lower bushings with the urethane ones.

I'm taking the bike apart to loctite all the bits, replace radiator hoses, fit the tower and fairing, relocate the ignition, install powerlet and cig lighter outlets and put an on-off switch for the lights. I'm hoping for no trailside repairs, after all, nothing can possibly go wrong.

All with a headlamp in the dust and sand or in the blazing sun with a couple of million flies trying to crawl into your orifices plus a few mates giving you advice

yeah, it's not as much fun as it sounds

So, to make sure I'm getting this right:

Mudguts = new bolts that don't require bushings, upper mount.
Partsmaker = Bushings, better than stock versions 1 or 2, upper.

Is that correct? Anyone doing the lower mount?

The upper stock bushings are fine. No problems.
Mudguts = Upper Bolts with stock bushings
Partsmaker = Lower solid bushings with stock bolts.
Am i correct guys

+1 I am little confused too...

Is there any reason to choose Delrin over aluminum or vice versa?
