Question for those with SW Motech racks

Approximately what size are those spacers that go under the luggage rack? My SW Motech racks didn't include those spacers (bought them secondhand) and I might just try to replace them with something from the hardware store. But, I need to know approximately how thick those suckers are before I hit the hardware store.

Thanks!

Maybe you can figure it out from this picture. I'd have to take it apart to measure and I only go so far to help.


Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

There is a PDF file at the bottom of the page that I believe has all the spacer sizes in it.
