'93 DR650 Generator Cover

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Does anyone know what the 93 DR650 generator cover is made of? I managed to crack mine when the bike lay down for a bit of a rest while riding... :applause: :applause: :lol:

My welder says not a problem if it is aluminium, but he can't do it if it is Magnesium, it is a small (+-3cm) crack where the gear shift lever hit the case when I fell off a rock outcrop.

Thanks,

Gra

Even if it is Magnesium it can be welded. All the settings used on a TIG welder to weld aluminum are the ones you need to weld Magnesium. Maybe your welder just doesn't have the proper filler rod?
