Getting ready to do the mod. The bushing will save the purchase of a new 04 cover, so I understand. Forum searches on the subject shows that Yamaharichey was going to make some. Thats all I could find. Does anyone know if they can be purchased? Part number, etc.? Mine is a Canadian model. I assume there is no difference in the parts from the US model. Also, I was thinking about first pulling the side cover off to see if it is cracked before purchasing the bushing. If it is cracked, I have to get the cover anyways. Maybe I should buy all the parts first before tearing into it. Any thoughts on this. Thanks in advance for any input.
