Crush Washer Source?

Anyone know of a good source for the 12mm oil drain crush washer (preferably a 5-10 pack)? I haven't had much luck looking around and am not particularly interested in paying stealership prices.

Thanks,
Colin

Couldn't you just use a brass washer instead, I have also used Teflon paste before made by Loc Tite

I still have some unused flat aluminum crush washers from my KLR, but they look very different from the thin, beveled one on my Wee, so I kind of assumed that I should be using the ones for the Wee. If the flat ones aren't a problem, I'll just use those.

You can go to any hardware store (Lowes for example) and buy aluminum washers, that's all you need, or any auto parts store has them. Cheers--BB

Yeah, when I had my KLR, I just went to an auto supply store and bought a bunch. I'll just continue doing that. Thanks, everybody.

NO YOU DON'T NEED A NEW CRUSH WASHER!

I just changed the oil on my bike, this past Monday evening. I installed a new crush washer when I did it.

It is the FIRST TIME in 104,000+ miles of riding, and oil changes, that I have ever changed a crush washer.

Don't worry about it is what I am saying.
