Where can I get this and other small sundry fork parts for BSA? This particular part looks a bit "seedy" (oild degenerated rubber) What does it do? One of the sponsors didn't have it in stock, and were not optimistic about the prospects of future availability - I ordered everything else - so I just need about 4-5 dollars worth of circlips and stuff.. Any suggestions?

I think that thing keeps the oil from splashing up onto the fork nuts. I didn't have any in mine, but I'm going to get some generic plumbing washers and stick them in there. I wouldn't fret about it.

Plumbing washers or the rubber washers K & N sells will work. Got 2 bikes with the K & N washers. Just have to trim them a bit to fit. Getting "genuine" BSA or aftermarket bits for this part isn't necessary.

Thanks gentlemen.

Are the circlips and other bits in the fork standard sizes?
