Engine side covers, does brand / quality matter?

Recommended Posts

Guys I'm looking to get some engine side covers for protection.

I see a lot out there anywhere from $15 for a set to $100... I'd like to just get some plain ones that match the engine...

any recommendations?  

Is there a difference in them as in better material etc..??
Thanks!

CFC Offroad also makes a high quality product.  I bought them because, at the time, the TT store didn’t offer a plain version.

I’ve read reports that some of the cheap covers are poorly formed and don’t fit well.

I also got CFC for no TT logo. Definitely can put up with the abuse.

Not to hijack the topic but you can get an FCR 39 from the TT store... and after this morning’s ride I’ll be ordering mine !!!

That is a lot of $$$ for a carb with no TPS or hot start. :facepalm:

TPS has zero felt effect on this bike

Hot start....I have one on my FCR 39, never needed it.
Yes you can save a money if you have good experience and knowledge in what to buy, where to buy it and set up of a carb.
What you cant buy while saving that money is carb that is any better for this application in a complete kit ready to install.
To each his own....some will buy the kit as a one stop shopping with after sale support as a valued purchase plan, others will source from several places, accept responsibility for dealing with several vendors for damage, warranty, mis-shipped or lost orders, and incorreclty ordered parts...

Do what works for you

False.

The thin film resistor controls advance based on throttle position. :smirk:

Clearly you never had a bike with big cams and a TPS at the same time. :rolleyes:

 

But I get it, if you haven't experienced it , it doesn't exist. :lol:

5052 H32 is definitely NOT aircraft grade aluminum,it is the cheap low grade stuff found in most general sheet metal shops nationwide,It in no way has any of the strength properties of 2024 T3 Alclad.H32 was never authorized to be used on any aircraft that I ever worked on for structural repairs of any kind.

Yep, I wouldn't know anything about that, just based it off of how thick the material was!
