    Hi,

    I have read that there are neoprene? shock absorber “rubbers” available (for T160). These are supposed to last longer. Anyone used these or known who sells them?

    Thanks

    Tony

    I am using urethane rubbers. They are a bit harder giving a slightly harsher ride but they do are indestructible.

    Tony,

    I bought a set earlier in the month via https://www.ebay.com/itm/Triumph-Trident-T150-T160-X75-BSA-A75-Polyurethane-Clutch-Rubber-Kit-12-/231559807572?nav=SEARCH

    Multicoloured (as shown), the Ebay posting at the time indicated that they were the last set and the link above would appear to corroborate that. Maybe try reaching out to Mud Creek Motorcycles to get their provenance?

    Good luck

    Peter

    Google ‘Tony Hayward belt drives’, this will bring up the address & telephone number of the guy who sells them in the UK.  He doesn’t have a website.
