Oil leak at bottom left cover

Hey guys! So I just converted my 98 Sportster 1200 from mid controls to front. I noticed that without the original shifter foot peg bracket, the cover leaks oil. Do you guys know if there is a plate or something I can get to go there? Or should I find smaller bolts, or cut up the original bracket? I'm guessing different bolts would be the easieat way to go, but I'm not sure if the cover is designt to have bolts torqued down directly on to it there.

Thanks in advance!

Just put shorter bolts in with some sealer on the threads. Measure the hole depth so the bolts ya get don't bottom in the holes.
