Does anyone have a source for nylon washers that will fit the shoulder bolts for the chin fairings?

I read mixed opinions if the chin fairing bolts are supposed to have nylon washers. When I took mine off only two bolts had them.

My local hardware store has them. Real hardware, not big box.

The '06 Ulysses shows them as being fitted on the shoulder screws in the parts manual - Buell part number BA0509.6.

Does anyone have a link to some nylon washers that I could purchase online (eBay, Amazon, etc.)

I would rather not have to rummage around a hardware store right now for health reasons.

These would have to go pretty close:
https://www.mcmaster.com/standard-washers/washers- 4/washers-5/material~plastic/color~off-white/id~0- 328-/

I just measured a couple of used ones and they are a bit egg shaped but the ID is between 0.330 and 0.338", OD 0.555 - 0.560"and thickness 0.030-0.032" so very close to the McMaster ones.
Not sure how hot the brackets get but I'm guessing these would cope.
They would also be a simple 3D print project if you know someone with a 3D printer?

Leadenwinter - Thanks for the link. Which is the correct size to order? Based on the measurements Rays provided I don't see a really close match.

M6 is the correct size.

0.25" = 6mm

Since the nylon washers go over the shoulder of the bolt, not the 0.25" threads, I would get M8 (0.31"). That is closer to Rays measurements of the washers

I decided to just order the McMaster Carr part. I measured one of the bolts and they seem like they will be a good fit.

I've used an old plastic container and a punch. Works just as well and you can make them for "free."

The McMaster Carr part number above was a perfect fit!

I managed to get a selection of 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10mm which are roughly equivalent to 4mm = 5/32 inch (= a bit over 1/8 inch) 5mm = just over 3/16 inch. 6mm = almost 1/4 inch. 8mm 5/16 and 10 mm 3/8

I just ordered the originals from St. Paul HD. Pricey though at i think $1.70 each.
