I need an odd little part

Looking for a tiny part that doesn't seem to show up on any of the usual sites. I need the little rubber strip that is between the rear cases. Standing in back of the bike, it is a vertical black strip. It's missing from my bikes cases, leaving a gap. Any ideas?

It would help us a lot if you put the model in your signature.
Having said that, I can't think of any with vertically split rear cases! Lets have a picture.

standing behind a 1200 engine, i can't think of any vertical black piece. a picture would be good. i have several 1200 engine parts, and would be glad to help if i knew exactly what you wanted

Perhaps you are referring to the filler strip between the frame and the Side bags?

Hey thank you guys-- yes it is the little black rubbery vertical filler strip between the saddlebag and the fender. I think of saddlebags as SOFT ( as in a 'bag'...) and I call the hard ones "cases" as in a briefcase. ??
So yeah, it's a very obscure little part. The guy I got the bike from had about 4 OldWings apart (www.bigskyclassicgoldwingparts.com )and he didn't even have one. Dang.

It’s not going to be an EXACT match but try McMaster-Carr, it takes a little navigation but they have endless styles shapes and sizes of rubber edging. I am sure you can find one that only the most astute GL enthusiast is going to spot as wrong.

Seven year old thread. OP was last here four years ago. ;)
