A little Stude type help please....

Need to find a source (an easy source if you please) for these two (non-Stude?) grommets.

They are (or should be) a fairly hard rubber used for vibration isolation.
They each get pressed through a metal bracket and a 3/8" bolt gets passed through the inside.
I have no clue where they originally came from.
Maybe somebody recognizes these and can suggest a good source.
Thanks ahead of time...

Have you tried metro moulded parts? They have a web page and their phone # is 763-757-0310. They make lots of rubber parts.

Jeff, you can spec grommets by:
1. The diameter of the hole in the metal
2. The thickness of the metal
3. The diameter of the hole in the middle [you said 3/8]
4. Rubber hardness [50 durometer BUNA-N is softer, 60 durometer SBR is harder]

Might check your local Honda (motorcycle) dealer's parts dept.
