    Plugs for mid-blade fork eyelets?

    I'm trying to find plastic or rubber plugs for mid-blade fork eyelets, for a Surly x-check fork. I've seen them come standard on forks with a full-bike purchase, but am having trouble finding any online for purchase. Anyone know of any?

    Thanks.

    I would just grease some stainless bolts real good and use them.

    Not even sure why you need to plug the holes, but Bianchigirl has the answer.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Yep, the eyelets are threaded M5x.8, the same as waterbottle bosses, so get a couple of short bolts in that threading.
