I gave up looking for a set for my bike, one of the originals had a small split so I used an old inner tube and rubber cement to repair with a complete wrap around the middle round section, unless you look very closely you cant see it.

It would not be great for air flow but if you were desperate do you think you could extend the F model rubbers by cutting in half and as above using a piece of inner tube cut to the correct width.

Thanks for the info but I may have found a second hand set in the UK. If not I have the name of a guy in the states who makes them and is willing to ship me a set.
