General 5 star gas tank bushings

So the front of the general 5 star (top tank) gas tank is held in place by two rubber bushings. My bike is missing one, and the other is in bad shape. I measured my remaining one at roughly:

OD: 24mm

ID: 12mm (thickness of the shaft it mounts to really, the ID of mine is trashed)

TH: 9mm

Any clue on where to get a replacement? Doesn't look like the normal moped parts suppliers carry 'em, and I'm striking out at mcmaster carr.

These might worth with some creative cutting and squishing I guess:

I cut my own out of rubber bushings from lowes.

Could probably mold some out of butyl

Our NAPA is basically just a desk where one can order things, unfortunately.

Haven't been able to find anything locally, so I ordered the bushings I linked in the first post and will cut 'em to size.

Yours looks a decent option. I've stacked rad hose on other projects

Re: General 5 star gas tank bushings

I used the ones from lowes as well. I had to sand them a bit to get them to fit right, but they worked.
