    Received the cush rubbers after 8+ weeks. There nice and tight. And a lot cheaper! Thanks Andy and Glitch for the lead.
    Took the opportunity to fit new discs, pads, tyres, tubes, chain and tongue.
    Merry Christmas, One and All:)

    Yup, they sure took a good while to get here but arrived yesterday. :-)
    Thanks to Andy in ZA.
    Have a great 2019 everyone.

    Does that front disc improve the front brake any..? I consider the OE front brakes very weak. With new SBS pads (can't remember which one) it helps, but I would like better still.

    Yes it does feel a lot stronger but thats to be expected with a new disc & pads. With 70,000 klicks it was due.

    I think PaulC got the right ones.

    I ordered a set but I think I was shipped the wrong ones and so far have not been able to get the right ones. I've kinda given up.

    Here's a couple shots showing the comparison.

    And the replacements. Needless to say the fit was sloppier than stock so I left them on the bench.

    :eek:

    Naw....they seem to have the wrong shape, are physically a little smaller, are missing the dimples on the back-side (yours are smooth)....they certainly are not
    what I've got in front of me (same as PaulC's above).
    Haven't fitted mine, but trial-fitted in a spare rear wheel (Strada/ cast wheel) and a spare sprocket carrier and it takes both hands and all my weight and force to jam the sprocket carrier into its place.

    Yep they fit nice & tight. I'm running mine and they feel pretty good.

    Just received mine last week, same as PaulC has in his pictures. They fit SNUG. It took a bit of convincing to get the rear wheel assembled again but worth the effort. They feel great, especially compared to the clunky old rubbers of mine that had a lot of play.

    Are they harder in comparison to stock rubbers? Too hard and they'll provide less dampening which is their primary function.

    For a start, they're not "rubbers" (as in nitrile-rubber, like the stockers) but HD Poly-Urethane items.
    They don't squash (compact + harden off) and deform as readily as the OEM items.
    All up, they're a far "gentler" solution than the OEM (after their early compression and resulting slack + slap, once compressed).
    The OEM's are sort of like a bike-seat....if "cushy and soft" for the first 20 minutes, it's usually useless and painfull for any trip beyond the first hour.
