I'm not sure this is your model? Vz800 1998 (W), there are 2 bushes along with 2 roller bearings according to the schematic.

Hello Tony,
I think you will find that the bearings ( needle rollers ) are in a cage inside the spacer pivot. There is a longer spacer but it is re-used.

Look here :-
Cheaper I think than E-Bay,, £43.87 delivered.
Hope this is of some help mate.

hi .. i had a word with a guy at the bike shop down the road from me, he said see if it will tighten up make sure you use a strong arm bar. i gave that a try and got half a turn and the play was gone, i stripped the arm off the bike at weekend to see what the wear was like then i could try and get something on order, it had very minimum wear so everything was cleaned and greased back up, all this because the nut was slightly loose, it felt like i had rear wheel steer, anyway job done i will see how this goes for now
