You can find them at a hardware store w/ bearing balls also. That's where I got mine. A couple bucks!

Went out to garage and got then. I must apologize I picked up the bearing style for backup!!! same kind as the one on the trailer safety pin. I use the flip end style on left.

Man, been a long winter:o

Yea, they have the various styles to choose from, just take the old one with you, IIRC they also carry S/S ones too at some places.

Just replaced mine on my 05 PS197. $10 at the local MC dealer for the 'flip over' style shown above.
