Does anyone make an aftermarket slide plate that is stronger, or are we stuck with the OEM part? :crazy:

Side plate? What is that?

If you mean "clutch cover", then yes, the real reason for the existence of Hinson, Boyeson, and GYT-R clutch covers is to keep foot pegs out of the engine during a crash.

Slide plate like for the chain to slide on TJ Designworks makes a good one. I'll tell you about it if I can get the @#$%$^ allen head bolt off from the bottom.

That was the tactic I used as a kid. :crazy:

Junior tried it on me, but it didn't sell. I started charging him for each piece.

sorry guys! I'm an idiot :crazy: :ride: :ride: I'm talking about the slide plate on the front of the slide in the Carberator. I think it's also called the "floating valve" or something

BTW can't you guys read minds?

I knew that's what you meant. :crazy:

I think you are stuck with a stock part, but perhaps a new unit. There are a bunch of threads about these breaking back in the day.

...try reading the thread...sorry to give you a hard time newb, but I don't think a skid plate is going to fix his carb problem. :crazy: Just a thought.

I sprayed carb cleaner on the slide and the housing to clean it. It cleaned it good but it made the slide plate gasket get all stretched and messed up. so rather than order a new one I cut old one and fit it into place :crazy: . and then proceeded to ride the bike. the hanging idle got worse and worse and that is when I noticed the broken plate and no trace of my cut gasket :ride:

I'll never make that mistake agoin no matter how much I want to ride!
