    Mate you will get some grommets from a electrical supplier they come in different sizes 20mm or 25mm or 30mm, with holes in the centre or filled in. you can then cut what size hole you need, you will be able to get them from Screwfix as well. They are used on back boxes for double sockets. I use them all the while as I'm an electrician.

    Cheers

    The proper grommets for the front at least are specially shaped,
    Although not cheap they are or were available from Finishline Accessories in the USA.
    Must get some myself.

    As Kev says whilst the rear ones are pretty standard the front over riders come through the body where the body is at an angle to the vertical. Finishline do them. I notice Europa now do front ones with a thin inner section to allow flex. Not sure how go they will look in practice but definitely cheaper.
