So there I was out on Sunday...Dropped the bike and the gear lever goes straight into the stator cover causing a dent and a crack which oil was weeping out of. Anyway. Not wanting to pay Honda £180 for a new one I set about welding it. Smoothing the front off to get rid of the dent. Nice and oil tight now. The Honda engine coveres weld lovely.

Even sprayed it up.

I have done a few XR,CRF and TTR ones now for mates...Can't beleive the price of a new cover!!
