rubber bushing fairing fastener

Hello! Who can tell me what the rubber bushing nut is called that is located by the crash bars and is attached to the frame into which one would fasten the tupperware fairing tab to. It has deteriorated and needs replaced, so I can properly fasten my fairing. Is it called a wellnut? My eight year old called it a thing that goes like that, but I could not find the part listed by that name, lol.

Re: rubber bushing fairing fastener

I think what you want is the Blind rivet nut, insulating. M5 46632347012 $4.49.

I tend to run a tap thru mine once in a wile to cleam up the threads.

Re: rubber bushing fairing fastener

Found mine at a local Ace Hardware. Also Lowes has some metric stuff. I don't know about out in CA but where ever it will be cheaper than the $4.xx somebody listed.

Good luck in your search
