Went to stealership a few days ago to get 4 Windshield bushings for my Road Kings windshield. These are the 4 black plastic/rubber thingys that your detachable windshield sits on when mounted on the bike.
Moco wants $4.85 EACH for them. I said Screw you and went to Lowes. got 8 thin washers the same size as the bushings and 4 plastic spacers about 1/4 inch. Measured to ensure the hole sizes were compatible.
Made a sandwich out of two washers and a spacer. replaced each bushing with a sandwich. It worked out beautifully. The windshiels even fits more snugly and installs and removes a lot easier.

Total cost for my mod after taxes was $5.12.
moco bushings would have been $20.75
