Anyone have a junk 43mm tube?

Looking for a bent/scratched/rusted/whatever 43mm inner fork tube to hack into pieces and make a spacer for a bar riser.

Mine are upside-down forks off a mid-2000's GSXR. I think they are 45mm.
Sorry. I woulda gave 'em to ya with lower triple clamp, just to be rid of 'em.

Inner tube, I have these risers but I am missing the inner tube that keeps them locked onto the bars. I am hoping to cut some short 1.25" sections that will function the same.

I got disassembled 94ish gsxr750 fork, I assume you just need only one side of tube not both? I would like to keep other side since it is still intact.

The tube I would like to get rid of has only small dings on lower part of tube! PM me if you still need it.

Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited hooked me up with a bent one and I got the spacers finished, also picked up a rear tire while I was there. Thanks!
