Center-stand "o" ring size?

Any one know the size of the "o" rings on the pivot sleeves in the center-stand and where to buy them? I've hit the local auto parts non to be had.

Strangely, that is not shown in ETK. Usually ETK gives sizes of O rings, but that O ring is not even called out in the centerstand assembly.

Yep I know! I called my shop here and if I want "o" rings I'll have to buy two new sleeves @ $8+ each, what a deal.

If you measure the O-rings, I can get the industry standard number for it, then we can probably find them readily. I have an industrial supply house close to my work that has both inch and metric o-rings in stock.
