Ya know those little short stub/stud thingies that are located at the lower rear of the left and right knee pads and 'posed to snap fit into a rubber grommet that lives in a slot on each bike's left and right battery cover piece? Well, ole Toad is sans grommet. Sooo - axing for some creative thoughts to keep those stub/stud thingies in place with something other than unobtainable OEM grommets. Hot glue in a school desk pink eraser behind the slot; or a piece of worn thin ME880 tire tread - either one with a small hole to hold the stub/stud thingie when slap fitted? I'm kinda tired of the rattle can noise going on down there now. Ideas??
There are lots of grommets out there. Try Radio Shack? They've been closing stores and need help. http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...ductId=2103392
(I've no idea if they'd have the size needed. )
Electrical supply houses will have rubber grommets. Maybe shopping on the internet or checking with electrical supply houses.
I'd be making one. In my little shop of horrors, I'd cut a piece of rubber out of the side wall of an old tire, or some such thing. Then I'd make a groove around the edge with a saw, dremmel, or cut-off grinder, or backpack nuc, or whatever, etc,. I'd hold the piece of rubber in a vice while cutting the groove around the perimeter.
Then I'd punch a hole down the middle of the thing. I've made custom punches by taking a piece of metal tubing the right diameter, grinding the end sharp on the bench grinder, and pounding it through with a hammer. Voila, custom grommet.
So my options are labor intensive in shopping for a substitute, or labor intensive in the garage looking for material, tools, and Bandaids.
Arn'cha sorry you asked?
Almost 4th of July, hotter 'n Texas here in the Deep South of Vermont. (well, almost...)
