clutch cover destroyed

Recommended Posts

Last Sunday, due to a fall on ice, I've destroyed the magnesium clutch cover. here (ITALY) suzuki wants 100€ (130$)!!! for a new one.

where can I get one aftermarket cover? (and, of course, cheapest)!

thank you

Get a new cover, then for the love of god get some CFC case-savers (they are sold here at TT store)

Are you sure you can't repair it? Take it off the bike, clean and degrease and then use JB Weld or Lock-Tite epoxy and then add a Case-Saver on top of that available from the TT Store for about $25 USD. Put one on the other side while you're at it. May need a new gasket too but a heck of alot cheaper than $130... You'd be amazed what you can put back together if you clean well and take your time. Good luck... :)

thank you I'll try with epoxy and some carbon fiber to reinforce. there is a big hole in the bottom, my welding-man refused to weld magnesium.

You say a hole in the bottom, is a spot where the CFC would have NOT offered any protection???

But where a skid plate would have???

Yeah, it's about impossible to weld on that material but as to the rest of your description you're on the right track especially if you add the case-savers afterwards. They will also cover most of the cosmetic defects in the repair. A good skid plate will help avoid future problems, too. Good luck... :)

I pretty much did the same thing a couple of weeks ago. Took out both the outer and inner clutch covers. And this is with a CFC guard. I patched the oil leak with gum to get back out to the trail head.

The best prices I have found have been at www.ronayers.com

Outer cover around $80 us

www.factorypro.com has billet ones but $149.00????? :)

Like I said in previous post/wait for inventory clearance on E-bay if possible after repairing yours.Looks like cfcs & J-B Weld for now.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
