Default Linkage Bushes

A while back there was a guy here selling linkage bushes, i have some fitted and they are still fine, but i have always questioned their friction properties and if they affect the suuspension much.

Anyway i cam across a video on a dakar truck that has been using Visconite to make suspension bushes for their Dakar truck. Anyone tried using this to make linkage/swingarm bearings? Does look like it could make maintenance a bit easier (and also prevent the swingarm axle seizing on the bearings!)

Vesconite is a great product. I have experience using it in heavy transport applications back in RSA.

I wonder where the guy is. Think its a good idea to replace all linkage bushes of my Gasser (300/19) with this material...

This would be nice. I just did the linkage on my 18 GP. Anything has got to be better than cageless needle bearings.
