Question Plastic washers

Does anyone have an alternate source for the small plastic washers that go behind the fasteners that secure the body panels? They're missing from half of my ST3.

Thanks in advance,

Local hardware store as suggested.

An alternative is a fresh fairing bolt kit from eBay/Amazon in your choice of metal and color. They usually come with new washers.

Like Mike and SoFun said, Lowe’s or any well stocked hardware store. Nothing special, just a nylon washer. Two bucks and you should be set for life.

Man, living in this part of the world can suck sometimes...

No hardware stores that I've ever found here supply any hardware even remotely like the fasteners I need on my bike.

Any Aussies actually found any suppliers other than overprices eBay sites?

Purchased off these guys last year, quality good etc. Was hard to find nice thin washers, most of the hardware ones are 0.7 - 1.0 mm thick.
Can get in different sizes, purchased these for Dzus, but others available.
3GBP for 50 - roughly

I get mine at Mcmaster also. Great source of all kinds of oddball fasteners too.
