Holed my engine cover!

So I managed to put a hole in the bottom of my engine clutch cover, fell onto a rock on a recent Baja off road trip. Patched it with JB Weld, but I'd like to replace it. Can't find any on ebay. Anyone have one lying around? Thanks!

Loc-Weld, It more oil and gas resistant then J-B weld, I poked a hole in the crankcase on a kawasike 3 wheeler when it was brand new 1st day out and dealer suggested try Lock-Weld. The hole was about the size of a quarter and pushed in about a 1/4", I cleaned the oil residue with brake clean and spuzzed it up, 3 years later when I sold the 3 wheeler it was still holding. Who'd a thought an offroad machine wouldn't have a bash plate.

I JB weld a BMW valve cover and it never leaked after that. Fixed is fixed.

Rocky Mountain ATV has one for $64.91. Slightly more expensive than MAZ4ME's, but I've used Rocky Mountain ATV for almost all my OEM parts purchases, and they give really good service. I'm not saying Mr Cycle doesn't; only that I've had personal experience with Rocky Mountain.

Look for "Crankcase Cover" in the pulldown menu under "Select a Parts Schematic".

That $63 part is a cover for the clutch area only. The major cover is $185 smackeroos. Gladius cover on fleabay may work.

Maybe a little more detail or a pic would have helped. The original post in this thread didnt differentiate as to exactly which part was damaged. "Fell onto a rock "put a pic in my mind of the bike on its side, outer cover smacking a rock.
I can see, and have seen that outer cover having a hole punched in it, and maybe someone "would have one lying around." That $189 piece, I'd really doubt doubt it. But again...who knows?
