oversize clutch cover for TE449

Recommended Posts

Got my 449 few weeks back, the more I ride the more I like.

really a hoot!

But! the one thing that I see as a draw back is the frequent oil changes because of the low oil volume.

so I am wondering. Are there any talented machinists out there that could make a larger volume clutch cover?

I do realize that it would only be possible to increase by 1/2 quart. but, that is a 50% increase and my hope is to get up to 400mi oil changes.

Problem is the clutch actuator is on the end of the clutch cover. No external oil line on this motor like the old on so not EZ to just add a tank or cooler ether. I'm sure there is a way to do it but probably not EZ.
