Rubber baby buggy bumper, AKA center-stand thingy
Okay, I've got a question...
My lovely wife found a rubber disk lying in the driveway this weekend. After careful examination of said disk, I noticed "GA 507" stamped into it (okay, okay, it's actually raised, not stamped). I don't know what the actual part-number is.
After searching this forum, I see that this part belongs to the Suzuki centerstand, and keeps it from slamming into the exhaust (no wonder it has been really loud when I've been taking the Strom off the stand).
Anyway...I would put the piece back on, but the rubber nipple that fits into the hole has pretty much torn itself away from the disk. I called Suzuki to have this part replaced, but alas, they will not do it.
So...what should I do? My thoughts were:
1) Zip-tie that SOB on.
2) Get some vulcanizing glue and reattach the nipple, then zip-tie that SOB back on
3) "Acquire" one off another DL650 with Suzuki centerstand.
Any other ideas?
