Tank grommets

The last time I had the tank off I lost one of the grommets. I thought I'd find it in the engine but even after I had the radiator off I couldn't find it.

Where is the best place to get these? They seem rather expensive from cheapcycleparts.com

Did you look behind the ears? They seem to like landing there, found one of mine behind the right one. Had to give the dealer $8 for a new one, and he told me if I didn't use the steel bushing in the damper, it would crack the tank.

Yea I've had the ears off since. In the past I've always been able to find them but i suspect it later fell off on the road.
