Need Focus Ring for FA 50mm F1.4

Hey, I have an FA 50mm F1.4 lens that lost the little rubber focusing grip.  Pentax customer support quoted me $160 for the repair.  It's just the little rubber ring.  Is there any way I can just order the part and fix it myself?

You can almost buy he lens for that much! That's because they went with the Soviet style centralized repair factory and killed all the authorize Pentax repair centers. They completely control the cost of every repair now. Also don't be surprised if when it comes back it has ugly red ring around it.
