    I searched the forums, but I could not find any answers to this question. Also if this is the wrong place to post this I apologize in advance. I just need help finding the size of the bushing that come with the FlyTi Zenith blade. I can't seem to find any kind of measurements for them. Does anyone here have it that could maybe measure them for me?

    You don't really need them with a Zen pin Bali.

    Just use the stock washers the knife came with.

    Or if you must have bushings send a DM to flytanium on Instagram and ask what the dims are.

    flytanium is more active on IG than here.

    I did message them, and the reply was basically he didnt have any to measure and didnt know off the top of his head. Also wont the pivot holes on the zenith blade be too large for the sexbolts on the BM51 without the bushings?

    Dunno. Never had a problem when I used washers with my Rep blade on flytanium handles.

    I think the bushings are 1/8 ID 3/16 OD.

    And yes, it won’t work without them.

    I doubt you can buy them. They may be hand tuned. Need to be .001 thicker than the blade.
