Could you flip a normal grommet upside down?

if you find the thinner bowl grommets for egpytians, they work fine..sometimes you have to cut the length.

If its a big issue before you can get a replacement:

get some foil, and make a ring around the base of the bowl until it is thick enough to fit snug in the stem.

after that, go and buy a regular bowl grommet, seriously all you have to do is cut the height of the grommet if its too long, its just a circle of rubber. if you think the regular bowl grommet will be too big, use a hose grommet.

when i had a syrian with a traditional syrian bowl...its what i did and it worked.

alot of sites sell a few different size gromments... but for .99 you can get a roll of teflon tape and make a gromment that way... basically making a "cast" around where the bowl goes in. So use the tape until you get a good order together so shipping doesnt kill.

Nice! I looked at John's site for the grommets but I didn't check the bowls. I'll have to drop him a line.
