919 fork tube insert(s) or spec thereof

Anyone out there got an old bent fork tube or two for a 919 (02-07)?
I bought some new aftermarket tubes that are missing the insert at the very bottom of the tube. That is, the piece that looks like a big flat washer and is held in place by the rolled over edge of the tube. Trouble is, I disposed of my old tubes before realising the new aftermarket ones came without. Although I can easily machine new inserts, I don't have an original tube to measure the spec from. As far as I know, the tubes have not changed at all over the model years. Happy to pay for anyones time to extract inserts or measure spec for me.

Sorry for the semi-threadjack here, but where did you get the fork tubes from, and how much?

Thanks guys - have PM'd SoKali

Darkace625 - I will not recommend the supplier as they did not supply me complete tubes. However, they were less expensive than OEM and the makers claim they are 10% stronger. When the issue with the inserts is resolved and I have rebuilt and tested my forks, I may be able to help other members source fork tubes. They are not made in the US and so shipping costs may diminish the cost advantage compared to OEM in the US.
