I have a 2002 1150RT and wanted something to put my feet on to stretch out on long rides. I bought some elf pegs from BOB's and they bore a hole through my valve cover where the bolt holds them on. I noticed the bike was leaking oil onto my boot. I brought the bike to my Dealer and he took off the valve cover and you could see where the bolt came right through. They suggested I take them off and not use them.Now I'm getting ready to ride the the MOA rally in WY and I'd like to try putting some sort of metal sleave in the space in the cover where the bolt fits in. Otherwise I don't want to risk having an oil leak on this long of a trip. I'm wondering what anyone elses experience with these pegs is?
Any advice would be apreciated.
