Hi there, I built up my own set of hydraulic pedals and can verify that skateboard bushings slide perfectly onto the slave cylinder shaft of the richmotech pedals, have a look at ebay and you should find plenty of options. Order a load of different durometer ratings and try them all to find the perfect one :) Proper Richmotech ones are definitely not available over here.

yes I have some skate ones but needed some a lot softer.

I ended up getting some rubber bungs with a hole in from wilko's,they are used for fermenting I think,work spot on.

Do you have load cell or hydraulic pedals? Just realised that those bushings you listed were for load cells.

I have fanatic csl elite pedals with the load cell.
I have replaced the stock damper that has those small black rubber bushings with a festo 25/50mm cylinder which you can either use a very strong spring over it or find some bushings to slide over the shaft to aid the first part resistance,the 2nd part resistance comes from the hydraulic action of the festo unit.
the cylinder is filled to about 80% with silicone rc damper oil,the end hole is fitted with a 500psi transducer to provide the readings.
you can still use the loadcell to give the readings and doing back to back checks with the LC and transducer connected to a leo bodnar board they both have 99% the same scaling and readings.

sorry for long post lol.
