Case savers falling off anybody ??

I have just fitted a set of Alloy case savers with silicon sealant as per the instructions. They feel very secure now the silicon has dried. I just wondered if anybody has had them fall off? or am I just being paranoid ???

if ya have clean up the surface well before putting them on, it should hold up firmly.


A friend of mine had his come off after a sharp contact with a rock. Damn good thing he had them on though. They were installed correctly and were cured, it was just the angle of the hit.

happed to me once when my bike decided to try and move a boulder ( without me on the bike) the case saver saved my butt. I was 30 miles from the truck and it was a hard impact.

If everything was clean and dry, no worries. Mine have survived a lot of abuse. :cry:

Mine look exactly like Bronco's....banged up big time. Haven't fallen

off yet! :cry:

If you did it covered the entire mating surface with a layer of silicon sealant and then let it cure for 24 should never come off. You could probably lift the bike with it.

We use this stuff to seal the cork pan gaskets when we build drag motors...and we had one on so good that we lifted the entire short block of the ground with all the pan bolts out...and it would not break free. We ended up haveing to do a lot of digging and prying to finally get that pan off.

No worries. :cry:

Cool, looks like they're on for good then

I dont think mine could come off if I wanted them too

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
