    Need help identifying a rubber part

    ***FOUND IT*** I need half a dozen of these little trim pieces and have no idea what search terms to use. It's a rubber bumper that's pushed thru a 3/16 hole and keeps the hatch of my sidecar from slamming against the fiberglass tub on rough pavement or dirt roads.

    I could probably find it on JC Whitney if I knew what to call them. Any ideas?

    Hi Pete, those are the bumpers that are used in a commercial door frame and may be available at one of the home improvement stores (still).
    Here is something that may get you going on the right track- possibly a newer style.

    At the page (Google) that shows images, there was an auto-body shop supplier that seemed to feature them. Around my way, I could get them for sure from Robert Karpp..Attleboro/Boston.

    True, but you live in the Deep Souf. Up here in Vermont things like that aren't carried on the assumption that any vehicle old enough to need them rusted away decades ago.

    If you want authentic BMW - they've used these on the bottom of many of their seats where they touch the frame rails. About $1.50/each or so.

    Yep, my 86 airhead has a bunch of these rubbers supporting the seat. Check the fiche at Max BMW for the part number.

    Rubber part

    Looks like the dampening isolators that are used on the lower part of the tool tray for the (ignition brain?) on a '92 K 75s and possibly any other year K 75.

    Ah, but those are metric and not 3/16 inch holes!

    I posted my part number & a source several months ago-they are a GM part number & common as dirt and cheap-buy them 25 to the box for a couple of $. Metric factor doesn't matter as rubber slides into the holes fine as they are.
