Hey Wolverine,
My source has been the gallon ice cream buckets sold at grocery stores. I just cut one up and use the correct size hole punch to make new ones.  IMO they are more durable than the originals, being a bit thicker and if/when you lose one, which for me is often I just go to my screw container and get one out...
Other than that partzilla is where I go for official parts when needed. Here is the link to the page that has the washers:
https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/kawasaki/motorcycle/2012/concours-14-abs-zg1400ccf/cowling-center-caf-ccf You are looking for the part: 92022 Washer 6.5X16x1 full # is: 92022-1143 $1.81 each.  Makes the ice cream tub look better and you can pig out on your fav flavor as a bonus.

Cheers!
BG

I'll try ACE but its tempting to try the ice cream  bucket just so I can get to the bottom of it.
Thanks

I'm really liking that realm of thought... mmmmmm good... real good...
Come to yhink of it, any lids from numerous containers would work, coffee cans, butter tubs, the lids from the deli tater salad and cole slaw.... all this is making me hungry....

A. Set of hole punches from Harbor Freight, and all is good...  lesseee, punch a 1/4" hole first, then punch around that with a 5/8" and voila...

I've looked for the push pins there but never thought about the washers. Now a reason to go to Ace Hardware.  ;)

Lowes has them also,
I'm opting to make my own...
use my drill press as a press (non powered) with a block of hardwood, and these

or go manual, and hammer 'em out....

of course, I have an H/F outlet store like 5 miles from my house... so tools always win over buying at Lowes..

Went to my local electronics supply for adhesive shrink wrap tubes and they had that wall of hard to find assortment of everything that the Big Box stores usually don't have, (which ACE and True Value do have) and found some small black plastic washers that are just a bit thicker than the stock opaque nylon washers. Bought a bunch of them for 19 cents each.  They also carry the push pins but I did not pay attention to the sizes...
Yogurt lids also work well unless they are the tin foil types of course...
Cheers!

yep
pretty much Ace sux for hardware... Lowes has washers tho, and mayb, pushpins, but not the correct metric ones...

I did find once, a True Value Hardware store, in Wellsboro Pa., that actually had 4 of the C10 front wheel bearings in a bin... they weren't the sealed bearings, but they would get someone home... amazing find.
