replacement for lost dust-caps?
I have a pair of SR (sakai) pedals that I love but one has lost a dust-cap. I initially thought I would replace it with a KKT dust-cap, but it turns out the KKT is larger. Incidentally the SR pedal dust-cap is the same size as a SR crank dust-cap. However the crank cap does not work (regardless of the fact that dust would still be able to get in) when the pedal is assembled because of the protruding nut.
Does anyone know of a makeshift replacement for pedal dust-caps? I really like my old pedals, and don't want to spend money on new ones that I'll have to get accustomed to. Or should I just shamefully ride it without a cap and repack it more often?
