Footrest rubbers.
« on: July 06, 2017, 01:53:49 AM »
Being a new Hesketh owner I am reading through old posts and gathering as much info as possible to keep my bike on the road and after reading about Jeff`s own rubbers I decided that my own needed replacing asap.Taking Jeff`s advice I found that a firm called David Silver Spares that specializes in old Honda parts. A pair of CB750 rubbers, part no. 50661310000, look like Hesketh footrest rubbers and fit perfectly, retail at £23.34 per pair including vat and postage.

Regards, Andy.

Hello Andy,

The reason that the CB750 footrest rubbers look like Hesketh items is because they are. Actually the other way round of course... I have quite a few of these spare but as they are NOS (New Old Stock) items, they are quite hard and I suspect new ones from David Silver will be softer. I also have a big bag of original gear change rubbers but same problem as they seem to split within a few days of fitting them... Sadly, all these "original" spares are well past their sell-by date and I made a point of throwing all my old BREMBO brake seal kits in the bin that I knew were at least thirty-five years old, same for brake hoses which were fairly awful spongy things even when new, compared to modern black braided items...

I have just come back from a visit to the grand opening of MIRUS-55 (Moto Corsa) in Gillingham (Dorset) this morning on my V1000. Good range of bikes inside and out plus a great cafe', although their new Brough Superior doesn't do it for me. Quite sad they have dropped the HESKETH venture but understandable and its replacement looks fantastic...

Apologies for coming in on this discussion so late in the day...

Rob is 100% correct in that they're a Honda part... Be aware that the NEW parts supplied under Honda Part No. 50661310000 are slightly different from the Hesketh Originals - They have less grooves and the rubber between them is slightly thicker.  This is an update to the original Honda design (I think to give longer life from the rubber) and they still fit perfectly and look 'original'.

I still have a couple of pairs for sale, if anyone is in need.  Send me an e-mail via any e-mail shown in your Sock and I'll provide details...

Ride Safe
