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.

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?

As long as the piece is clean of oil then the JB should hold. Have fixed i break in a transfer case with JB on my 4'b over 4 years ago and it still hasn't started leaking

I might have one from an SV in my shop. I used to put windows in them, but haven't had any orders for a few years.

1) Sand it flush.
2) paint it
3) forget it

I've used Pratley steel for aluminium casing repair. Not sure if you stock it in your shops on that side.

There's another compound out there that would be good for repairing metal. I ran across it years ago when I used to scratchbuild models. It's called Lab Metal, from Alvin Products. It's a putty, though you can actually thin it with a special solvent and spray it on a surface. Once it cures it's machinable (it can even be tapped for threads), and you can powdercoat over it. It can be sanded and buffed to a satin metal finish.

Time for a quality skid plate?
No skid plates really cover the side of the engine. I had a skidplate on there. I replaced it with one from Happy Trails. Much better coverage but still doesn’t go all the way up the sides.
