If you're talking about the neck cups you will want to go with OEM or an equal aftermarket set. Best to replace both at one time. Bearings too.

Default go factory

Go factory for the bushings man. I swapped my bars out and had a bitch of a time getting something more snug in there. Phat finally sent me some steel sleeves to use inside the bushing.

If you got factory bars, or hammer bars (not sure about the ness bars), just replace the bushings with factory and save the headaches.

Good luck, dude.

The play is supposed to be there. Part of its function is reduction in vibration.
