I did the same thing last summer on those damn razor sharp mountain rocks that are like iceburgs; only the top 10% sticks out of the ground so they are NOT going to move, no matter what.

buy some moose quicksteel, or any quicksteel for that matter. its like JB weld only 5x better!

spray off the outside, and inside if you want, but I only did the outside. pack it with the quicksteel and done!

10 or 15 cents worth of quicksteel last summer saved me from having to buy a whole new $200+ case!

but if you really wanna get a new one, PM johnnyairtime. hes parting out a 2005 450r right now :banana:

Search ebay. 02-08 covers are interchangeable. 02-03 are aluminum and 04-08 are magnesium. I just put an 03 ignition cover on my 08 after I put a hole in mine a few weeks ago. Put 56 miles on it yesterday. No leaks no problems. 02-03 cases are a little heavier than the 04-08, but cost like 99 bucks compared to 166 bucks (when you buy them brand new).:banana:

cool, where you you trail ride around there?

im in the crowsnest pass area.

if its that small, I would DEFINITELY just clean that area off of any oil and patch it with quick steel. mine was about the size of a dime, patched it last summer and its still solid as its ever been, and probably will be for the rest of the bikes life.

I was pretty stoked that I was able to save a few hundred bucks with that moose quick steel, or any quick steel for that matter will work. it costs 15$ for a tube and I only used about 1/50th of it.

ive also patched holes in my clutch case from my brake lever busting through, and it works perfectly :banana:

hmm, ive heard good things about mclean, never ridden there though.

yes I would highly recommend putting that stuff in your camelback.. it saved my ass one day. I went down what I thought was a trail, but it was a very very steep trail carved by the water in the side of a mountain in the elk valley in bc. as I was going down I dropped the bike and broke a hole in the stator cover case and didnt notice. I kept going down (very stupid) until the water trail ended at the bushes, there was no where to go but up, and that was almost impossible at the time. steep as a wall, .5km long, no runway, and the rocks acted like marbles.

I couldnt get the bike out, even if the engine had oil, so the bike sat in that valley for 8 days!! I didnt know there was a hole in the case until we came back to get the bike 8 days later

we came back and luckily had the quicksteel and some rags, I cleaned the hole, patched it, and luckily a friend had a little bit of engine oil in his backpack! it rained during those 8 days and had washed all those marble rocks down, it also buried half my bike!!

buy yeah, long story short: quicksteel is awesome stuff to carry in the camelback, It is very very strong stuff and can fix almost anything just to get you back to the truck, I would highly recommend buying 2 tubes. 1 for the shop, and 1 for the camelback. its already saved me hundreds of dollars :banana::thumbsup:

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
