That's referencing thickness, but you knew that, right. Make sure the diameter fits flat inside the cavity.

I think you can use a washer that is sold by a company named Dubro. They sell hardware for RC models. Stop by a local hobby shop and they should carry them. I don't remember which one you need though.

Just go to a hardware store and ask for a #4 washer,they fit #4-40 screws (thats about 3/32" screw dia.).Beware of poor/rough stamping as some suppliers send crappy products.A guy here had the same prob.Make sure they are smooth around the edges.Good luck,ride safe...

This is true just take some emmery cloth and clean it up if you have to. Make sure you clean any grit off it before you put it in though,but you probably knew that.
