    Zx7r Can anyone identify this please?

    Hey guys, am building my Zx7r Streetfighter and have had everything stripped and powdercoated/painted. Am reassembling it right now but I can seem to find where this bush goes. Its not the swingarm dogleg mount bush. Right now its my only headache ( ignoring the bike falling over off the paddock stands and scratching the powdercoat ).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    What are the size of the witness marks on the ends.?

    Is swing arm pivot bolt 12mm..?

    All wheel spacers accounted for..?

    Ali or steel..?

    has it corrosion from external mounting or grease from internal..?

    Its a straight aluminium bush. No lips or anything. All wheel spacers seem correct.
    The corrosion looks like black paint. Its all very odd .

    I had help stripping the bike plus the previous owner had stripped and kinda put it back together. A few bits were missing which made the learning process more confusing.

    I will pull the swingarm back out tomorrow and recheck that.

    Thank you for your help

    I think it is the rear engine mount spacer bush but definitely a engine mount part.

    ^^ Before you pull the Swinger..^^

    Get on partzilla or similar..use their parts fiche/rom to check for the actual presence of "that Part" first.

    Simple double check..

    If you look at the ends of the bush, you will see contact marks.....circles of a smaller diameter than the outside size. Can easily be seen of the pic you posted.

    keep in touch...I'm am curious. ;-)

    Couldn't wait for you 12.5 x 26x 51 mm mmm? Part No. 92143 Upper engine mount spacer at rear of frame..? The two bolts 12mm ????

    I'm on '93 ZX7R close...?

    I think we may have a winner. Engine mount spacer at the bottom of the pic. Specs match up. Partzilla is a godsend!! Wish I had known about it before

    Thanks again for your help and advice. I'm very new to all this. Car part fabrication is more my thing but I've jumped straight in the deep end with this.

    Just wish I hadn't chipped the damn newly powdercoated swingarm

    Pro tip....when disassembling bikes..put all the bushes/bearings/spacers...etc on the bolt they came from..saves time.

    If OCD kicks in they will be labelled/lubed/stored in zip-lock bags in boxes with larger part labels stored on shelving with bike type and model.

    +1 I still did that recently when I had to take the pannier racking off to sort the charging/RR issues even though I've taken it off many times
    Most of the bolts and nuts are pretty universal but sometimes you can forget where something is and be scratching your head trying to remember where it goes
    Definitely bags/boxes/wiring together for other parts of longer timeframes I even made drilled wooden blocks up years ago when rebuilding a 351c so that the rockers/pushrods etc all went in the same way up when being reassembled

    That was what I intended. Sadly like a teenage boy on prom night I got all carried away and it ended in a rush of sticky fluids and confusion.

    Once this one is done I want to ruin a mid eighties GSXR 1100 . Will make sure I learn from these mistakes
