Ok. I will have to take a closer look at the fork that is still apart. Looking online it appears that the leftmost split bushings are black when new and the one that is to the right of it starts out looking like chrome.
Thanks for all the info.
trail's info will be better than mine on the bushes.
OK, so I ran out during lunch and picked up an 8MM hex bit and then finished taking the other side apart. I see what you mean about the black coating on the bottom piece. The one that I pulled out is still completely black on 75% of the piece and has a coppery hue shining through in a few places. For now it will all go back together and I'll get all 4 bushings on order somewhere for future use when I make some other adjustments to the springs/spacers.
Sometimes the aftermarket ones are not a very good fit, watch out for that too.
I put them together dry first and check for a rattle fit, if they aren't good send them back :| they charge enough for them.
Put another 40 miles or so on it yesterday and the fork performance was a lot better after the new seals and oil. Put 8.5 lbs of air in it per the manual. Only issue on the ride was when the tach stopped working. Cable nut had vibrated off, easy fix. Next thing to figure out is some mirrors that actually work. Hoping that these ones will do the trick

The current mirrors don't have enough adjustment to see behind.
For about a hundred bucks you can put a rear view camera on it.
