- The first step is to remove the old stock peg covers using a small screwdriver and a little soap. ?Then use some good old elbow grease to ease them off.
- Instead of just tightening down the little set screw that is seen in the upper-righthand corner of the page, it is wise to take a bit more effort to make sure your new cover is a bit more secure upon the peg. ?If you just use the allen set screw it will compress the rubber inside of the cover and look awkward and not stay on the peg very well.
- Slip the new cover over the peg and mark where the screw will contact the peg.
- Remove the cover.
- Take a Dremel Tool or drill with a bit sized as to let the set screw fit down into and drill a hole approx. 1/8″ deep into the peg.
- Slip the cover back over the peg and use some blue loctite and tighten the set screw as to fit into the newly drilled hole. This will insure that the peg cover will not slip off and it looks nice upon the peg.
