Scooter--Is there a bearing supply in Victoria? If so, go there with the diameter and length of the bushings by measuring the places they go. Ask for thin wall nylon bushings with a split. Buy ones that are not too long and not too large - its OK they be a tad smaller - we are not talking close tolerances here. They will be far cheaper than from Vic or.....

Another option is to wrap the mounting posts with electrical tape.

See post #3. With a caliper, measure the shaft diameter and the length of the shaft and take that info to a brg shop.
