I have a 3hp Ryobi router but I do not have any guide bushes for it .I am in Malaysia and I could not find any supplier for the parts .
the power tool sellers just do not know about such accessories.
I mounted the powerful router on a a router table as it is too heavy to use freehand ,For lighter work I use a 1.5hp Hitachi router ,also without any bushes.

One solution is to make an auxiliary base out of hardboard or other suitable material, and make a 1 1/4” hole to fit standard Porter Cable guide bushings, which I assume you could import from the USA. I often make auxiliary bases for special purposes.
