Where can I get cylinder fin vibration dampers/absorbers? Or does that get me a nomination for today's stupid question?

They do help, but not sure where to get them. The stupid question is the one you don't ask. :Buds

If you cant find then, Ive made some from old tires.

Thanks Mark

Old tyres. Ah, yes. I have a couple of old knobblies I can probably re-purpose. Great thought.

Yambits in the UK stock some, so that probably means that Sumo Rubber also sell them to all other markets. Reports on quality is variable, though.

Just get some rubber fuel hose cut into lengths & squash into the fins for & aft not straight in. I'm sure that's all it is in some model yams--but maybe not. Or rebore to stop the rattle lol.

I've used a chunk of rubber floor mat that I think I picked up at Harbor Freight. Cut little squares and stuff em in.

Question authority, think for yourself!

I've purchased the rubber from McMaster Carr and cut it on a table saw to size. It gets a bit tedious but results are worth it.
