I suspect mine is a bit worn too so measurements might not be helpful.  Found these dimensions in an advert on eBay:
OD - 1-3/16''
ID 1-1/16''
Height 15/32''

TBH, I had never thought about these, so I asked my freind in the US who has probably done more miles than most.
He said to keep an eye for the strss marks, and replace the bush when they show. The failure of the bush will grab threads on the belt , lock up the drive, and it's hell to untangle the resulting mess, he says.
Another thing to maintain!
I guess they would not wear as badly if sitting at idle is minimised, and lubrication maintained, well at least as badly?
Thanks Geoff for alerting me.

Just out of interest, Rhys you mention lubrication for the bronze bush but didn't say with what???
Occasional squirt of oil, grease, or some special mixture I ain't heard of?

I haven't been told, but the bush is supposedly oil impregnated, so I would choose an oily mix with some graphite or moly., but only enough that it would not contaminate the belt.
