I've managed to "lose" one of the rubber type grommets that protects the exhaust side plate from the exhaust - apparently Yamaha doesn't sell these individually - I've got to purchase an entirely new side plate - anyone know where I can locate some of these or what they're made of? My side plate is practically new already...

Find a piece of automotive fuel hose that will either insert into the peg on the number plate, or slip over it. Cut it so that it comes short of resting on the pipe and glue it in place.

You can also put a big dollop of high temp silicone on it if you aren't as picky about looks (though you can't really see it on the bike).
