Hi Vincent.

They can be VERY difficult to get apart as the bushes tend to sieze.

You have to unscrew the chrome seal holder at the top of the slider. This has a very fine thread and can be damaged easily.

Then the tube should slide out bringing with it the bushes etc.

In practice you may have to heat/soak the top bush and keep trying until it all comes apart.

I had a set only last month that would not come apart however i tried. When i finaly got them apart, with the aid of varous special tools i made, the bushes were beond use.

Have a look here to see how bad they can get!

Hope this helps.

Your rims should be 2.15" x 18". Italian-motorbikes.com in Italy sells Radelli rims in that size.
