Default Rearset bushings...

I'm in the process of getting some bits powder coated for my S4rs. There's only one problem. I can't for the life of me push the large rubber bushing out of the Rearsets. Has anyone been able to do this? Or are they meant to never come out?

I'd really like to powder coat them and not have to resort to rattle canning them...

I have not tired to remove them on my S2R, but the bushings are have a part number, 700.1.039.1A, and are available from Ducati.

You probably need to do what I had to do when I powder coated my old style Monster wheels. I had to use a jig saw to cut through the bushing (the outer metal portion) and then use a huge hammer and chisel to fold the bushing in. I took them to my local dealer to have them pulled and after 3 hours they could only destroy the bushings, not remove them. They did not charge me for the time spent attempting the removal. Once I cut them away and got the wheels back, it only took a second to mount the new bushings. I kept them in the freezer and with a little grease smeared around them, they popped right in.

Hmmm, sounds like a good reason to buy a set of rizoma's....

Alright, took the rear sets in with the rest of the parts and they came back looking great and the rubber bushings are in tact.

Thumbs up to Top Gun Coatings here in Calgary (no affiliation)

There wasn't ANY powder where I didn't want it and every threaded hole is squeeky clean.

Bringing back an old thread here.

I'm running into the same issue with the rearset bushing removal. From what I'm reading above you don't have to remove the rubber bushing in order to powdercoat? How did the rubber bushing not melt during the curing stage?

I spoke to the powdercoating shop and they said the bushing can stay in the rearset and withstand the heat *IF* the rubber bushing is silicone based. If it is pure rubber it will just melt. Sooooo...does anyone know if these rearset bushings are pure rubber or are they silicone based??

It looks like the OP had the rearsets powdercoated with the bushings in place (indicating they are silicone based) but the guy is MIA and I can not confirm this to be true.

Anyone??

Hey man, sorry... been away for a bit.

Yes... I took a chance and had them done with the bushings in, turned out fine. The guy at the shop said he didn't turn the oven over 400 degrees, maybe that had something to do with it.
