    Just discovered another previous owner blunder. Jeez! One of my Koni shocks eye bush is missing on the shaft hub side. I have (3) bushes and need (4). You know the ones... a small cylindrical sleeve that fits over the bolt that holds the shock in place. Checked online to no avail. Anyone know where these can be purchased? Thanks.

    If you can't get 'em in NA then they're available from Oz at http://www.ikonsuspension.com/index.shtml

    I've made them before from tubing from a DIY store.

    You have an Ikon distributor in Canada - Interchangeable parts

    SPeaking o bushings, what's the proper way to torque the mount bolts? I assume the shock has to be able to rotate - so is the bushing longer than the shock eye?

    These are available from Ikon shocks in Australlia for around $20AU but I think they will only sell to a bike shop. If no luck getting one I may even have a spare somewhere.
