Finally installing my Satos need help

When I bought the Satos one of the black rubber pieces that goes between the clamp and the can was missing. I thought I could use a bicycle inner tube as the liner but after I put a flame to the inner tube I decided against it


Any ideas on what I can use? I'm about to head to Lowes and Advance Auto.

Any quick suggestions would be really appreciated.

Thanks

can itself shouldn't get hot to melt anything, including the inner tube. You should be able to put you hand on it and it should be just warm.

+1 If your can is getting that hot you may be running too lean.

The exhaust is fine and the cans are not getting too hot, I just didn't want to risk inner tube melting on the cans.

A repacking might be something I'll do over the winter.

Thanks for the info
