Bill, there are a lot of online dealers with Honda parts. I am sure a google search will turn up a few.

You will also have some luck at your local auto parts store as they normally handle various sizes of hoses and grommets. Often times you just need to get to their parts fiche to find what you are looking for. I know that as an example not every NAPA store stocks everything but they have parts fiches and oftentimes catalogues you can look through to find what you need. They also carry a good selection of O rings.

If you are an AMA member offers a discount. Partzilla is a frequently mentioned online source.

Also remember that any bike older than 10 years is subject to parts no longer being available. Honda used to maintain parts but stopped years ago. However if a part is still in use on newer Honda there may be a "superseded Part number". It never hurts to look. Also the local dealer may have the part in his stock. Usually this means it was ordered by someone and never picked up.

Western Honda is supposed to be very good although I haven't ordered from them before. CycleMax is good (and they stock grommmets) and they are just across the border from me so shipping is quick. Partzilla had nice prices but took a bit longer than others. Ordered a bunch thru CheapCycleParts and they were ok.

I needed just one grommet for a side cover. Made it out of black rubber hose.
It works but the pin is a little stiff going in, dab of Vaseline takes care of that.
