Internal Fork bumpstop for YZ125?

I recently pulled apart my front forks on my 1997 yz125 in order to change out some leaking fork seals using this guide:

When I pulled off the fork cap while holding the jamnut the rubber bumpstops or "bumper" (as referred to in that guide) crumbled apart.

I looked up the parts on the Yamaha online catalogue but didn't see any thing that resembled the bumpstop. I am assuming that those bumpstops were never needed--the suspension was never fully compressed--else those bumpstops would have already disintegrated inside of the fork tube. Is this something that you can leave out?

I am planning on going a head and trying to just make my own bumpstops out of poly urethane from the local Autozone.

Thoughts?

If you can't find it yourself on the microfilm, go to your local Yamaha dealer. They'll know how to get it.
