Exhaust pipe & center stand rattling noise

I bought a 99 VN750 about two years ago, and it appears to have the V&H Cruzers pipes added onto it. I've had some annoying metal rattling sound, and finally located it.

I figured out that the center stand was rattling metal-on-metal against the bottom of the left exhaust pipe as it sweeps under the seat.

There is a metal "bridge" on the bottom of the pipe with a hole in it where it looks like a rubber grommet should probably go in order to dampen the vibration and keep the center stand from rattling against the pipe.

Should it be easy to find a rubber grommet to replace in the hole at a hardware store, or should I order a replacement part from V&H?
