Need your help to find an obscure suspension part for my 2013 Yamaha R1

Hi Gang!

I recently purchased a used 2013 Yamaha R1. I love it! I have her in the shop getting a once-over and forks serviced. The techs at the shop noticed that the prior mechanic forgot to install a specific part (valve) when servicing the forks. Usually not a problem...unless Covid has slowed down the production of parts at the factory...

It's a $3 item - need two - a total of $6 is halting the rebuild of the forks...I have attached a screenshot of the part fiche, part number, and cost for your reference.

I have searched the online parts database for new ones and there is only one available in the US. I have ordered it. There is nothing at the factory and I have to wait months!

I was wondering if any of you have a destroyed set of forks for the 2009 to 2014 Yamaha R1 which I could tear apart and get these items? HELP!!

Thank you!!
