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:
