    Don't know the size but what I did was purchase 1 from the stealer at their ridiculous price and then took it to the local auto supply store and bought a dozen quality O rings for the same price as the 1 , using it as a size guide.

    O-ring assortments can be had at your local auto parts store like O'Rieley's, Advanced Auto and others or Harbor Freight...all open EVEN on Sunday!

    I bought 1/2 dozen on eBay for $2.50, free shipping and he throws in an extra one. He also has the clips for the brake and clutch lever pins, 4 for $2.50 free shipping.

    Thanks guys I went to the auto parts store and bought a whole kit with all differnt size o-rings in it for about 6 bucks ... I sure they will come in handy.. 2 days ago we had 67* and nice, we were riding with only long sleeve shirts on and today we got 6" of snow .. who would have thought it ... thought it would be a good day to go down to the shop and do some maintance on the Electra Glide .... Thanks again guys......:D

    Be careful you use the correct thickness, the assortment packs are great they tend to be on the thick side. If more than 1/16th thick they will split and or not tighten enough to seal, ask me how I know this, Capital Jack

    OK, but you wont like it, just be careful they dont cut or loosen up, I have seen this and repaired stripped plugs for friends who went this route:s I work in Automotive shop and have seen and used these assortments often, I check them with a micrometer to be exact, cant take chances with the paying customers and it makes me look bad and I dont need any help there
