Rubber isolator parts for EML GT2
Hello all: I have a K100RS with and EML GT2 sidecar. I need help finding a source for a couple of obscure parts. The sidecar rig is mounted to a frame and there are rubber isolators both fore and aft between the sidecar (fiberglass) and the frame (tubular steel). These are rubber spacers (or isolators) without threading in the center. My rig has lost two of the rubber spacers (or perhaps bushings) this summer and I am looking for a source for them. I have seen the article on EML sidecar vibration here: http://home.jtan.com/~joe/vibes.htm
When I google the parts listed in the above article, I find only factory availability and nothing for buying only 5 or 10 copies. Anyone know where I can source the rubber isolators. As long as I'll have the rig undone I would like to replace all 5. I even have a friend with the same sidecar outfit and I'm sure he will need them as well.
I am not sure EML still exports to the US and parts are not common but maybe other sidecar manufacturers use similar parts for the same purpose on their rigs.

Any halfway decent engineering supply house that sells linear bearings , pillow blocks etc will have those in stock.
Even some bearing supply places may have or be able to get them for you.
All they are is a larger female version of what holds your battery tray on the K.
Lots of different manufacturers of sandwich mounts.

+1 on Advanced Antivibration Components in New York. I bought a dozen isolators for my rig from them. Good service. No problem with small orders.
Though, according to my wife, the motorcycle-grade foam I used in the seat cushions were the key to a plush ride.
