I'm trying to get the carbs back on my bike. Replaced the throttle cables, and I remember now when i took the cables off the throttle tube at the handlebar, there were a couple gaskets that I did not see where they were originally for some reason. I"m pretty sure they go inside the switch housing but there are a few different places they could go.
I've attached a picture with different color lines where they could go.
I originally thought they both went on each side of the throttle tube, where the red and green lines are. But I really only think there is room for one and still leave a free twisting throttle.
Anyone know where they go? They are not in the parts diagrams either!
Thanks!

Non Honda parts. Most likely they were between the grip and switch pod and installed when a PO had a throttle lock, cruise control, unit in place. They minimize friction between the grip and lock unit

Ok, then tossing them out! It was driving my nuts trying to figure out what purpose they served and/or where they went!
