Does anyone have a drill press and would be willing to help me bore out some bushings on a gsxr rear shock? :bowdown:

Drill press, yes. Drill press vise (which you'll probably want for this), no.
With enough profanity, you can accomplish anything.

Quick Google search shows that homedepot might have something that would work for pretty cheap. I will buy the vise if you are willing to help. :)

I have a drill press with a vice. How big of a bore and where is the hole located?

I could give you a hand, assuming I have a bit the size you're looking to bore.

...and you can probably find a vise for less at Harbor Freight.
