Most good auto parts stores carry o-ring kits that contain o-rings of many shapes and sizes.
I'm sure you could get one that would match your need.
Another source is the plumbing section of the local hardware store. They too usually have a large selection of o-rings.
If not, contact Race-Tech directly and have them Fed-Ex one out to you.

Did the kit come with a sleeve, or was that the stock sleeve being re-used on the gold valve?
If it came in the kit, you could always just re-install the stock valve for now. Call race-tech too, they will send you a new one ASAP, just give em a few bucks! I got sent a shim for my fork gold valves in 3 days, priority mail. I dealt with Carter, he seems like a good enough fella, but I'm sure they would all do the same.

Yes that is what i'm talking about. I don't know what happened. I was being careful that the band was seated properly. But the GV entered the shock body angled so I had to remove it. I think this is when that band got damaged. RT said i could probably still use it until i get a new one. I just hate to do things halfass.(I could kick myself for this one) A.J.

I searched every where for this part including race tech and nobody had this part. Mxtuner saved my vacation. Leaving for florida tomorrow.
