I'm planning to replace my RT2 swing arm bushings with the brass bushings from Mikes XS (I would make my own but I can buy them for what a piece of brass bar stock will cost). My problem is with the "collars" 150-22124-00 / 90387-16226. One of mine is probably ok to use over but one is in pretty bad shape. I have found some used ones for sale. I've been doing some searches here to learn what's available as an alternative to the no longer available collars. There's mention of a needle bearing conversion but I haven't been able to find any threads about it. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks much!

This should be the same size. I used it on a later 250 swing arm in an old R5 frame
It seems like once they went to the larger dia swingarm bolt the use the same bushings/bearings

You might want to call them or email to see if you can adapt it to yours
