Sealing stickcoils to valve cover

I've almost got all the parts for converting the 06 over to the 600RR stick coils. Based on what I have read they stick coils are slightly loose in the valve cover. What have you guys that have done this conversion done to "snug" them up or seal the coils to the valve cover to prevent dirt and other crap getting into the spark plug recess in the valve cover?

You just need to cut some high density foam donuts. Very simple.

I found O-rings that were snug on the coils and that needed just a bit of force to seat in the covers. Never had an issue all season. Didn't ride in the rain but washed it a few times and all was good!

Found an easier way. Just slide the CBR600 coil seals off the stick coil, slide a tight o ring on the stick coil and then reinstall the stick coil stock seal. The o ring prevents the seal from sliding too much. You need to play with how far up the coil the original seal sits but once it's in place the coil DOES NOT wobble. Easy Peasy..
