Where can one find out whats covered under warranty?
I noticed today that my foot pegs are wearing out, I picked up my 2018 at the end of April .
I'm not hard on them but I notice how the rubber is wearing to the point that I can see the silver metal on the edge.
Only have 7,000 miles.

Thanks
PBR

They should have given you a copy of the Warranty and what it does and doesn't cover. Maybe contact your dealer for a copy they can e-mail you.

If it's any consolation, mine started wearing through about the same time. I'm now at 11k, and quite literally just came in from installing some Goldstrike floorboards. Best $160 I've spent on the bike to date. The replacement stock rubbers are about $20, if my memory serves me correctly. I seriously doubt they would be considered a warranty item.

rotate your rubber pegs from one side of bike to the other. It will put a new surface forward.
(got new "rubbers" for my old Wing at trike shops)

I used to stand on my left foot peg and pivot to mount the bike. I wore mine out on my 2014 in short order. With my 2016 I changed how I mount the bike and didn't see any appreciable wear in 30,000 miles. My 2018 has 14,000 miles on it and the pegs still look great. (The bottoms are a bit worn...lol.)
That being said, I'm pretty sure it is a wear item unless your dealer just wants to keep a customer happy. I would not be offended if my dealer wouldn't cover that item. I ordered the 2014 foot peg rubber on eBay for a few dollars at the time.

Translation for us gringos "In Barcelona, ​​Spain, I had the same problem with only 15,000 km and the warranty has recognized the design flaw and I have placed a new rubber without any charge."
