Anyone know where I can find another plug? I've lost one and I can't google myself to another one. Any leads would be appreciated too.

Use a coin? Is it really that vital that you need another plug? Not trying to sound like a jerk.

Plugs don't really do anything. They weigh like 80 Trillion lbs and slow you down.
They are dust & dirt covers, so they do have a function.

actually it keeps the pedal from moving in and out. by screwing it in you push a cartridge bearing into a pressure fit but with enough riding it pops out again.
looks like its time to get new pedals. maybe some plastic ones so i stop putting holes in my tibia.

I've never seen pedals with caps that actually had a function besides keeping crap out, but those are threaded. So maybe they do have a good purpose. Get some plastic pedals, you won't regret it. I didn't think I'd like them, but you don't even notice the difference in grip.
I was being facetious.I wuz too.
