Well, on mine they are. I got mine at the dealer, in stock, and there were 10 in a package. Price was not bad. Good Luck.........

On my 1982 GL1100 Interstate there are three rubber grommets. The top two are part number 83551-300-000 and the bottom one is 83551-376-000.
So they are different

Also on my 82 Aspencade. They're close, but not exactly the same.

On my '80 there are three, two round and one oval. I ordered a pack of round ones from someone on eBay before I realized they were not all the same. They sent me a bag of the round ones and they seem to work fine for all spots. Just a little tighter in the oval spots. Pretty much ideal in my mind, the side covers shouldn't fall off but not so tight that I'm worried about breaking anything.
