Hey Guys

My girl knocked my bike over in the garage the other day and although it didnt "crack" it, the shifter lever went into the engine case and made a very small dent in it. :lol:

I see that no companies offer aftermarket case guards for the XR650L like they do for the DRZ and other bikes. :confused:

I am trying to find if anyone has a spare side cover (broken is ok) that i could use to bring to my local machine shop and have some case guards made from. I mentioned my idea to him and he said if i could get a spare side cover and would be able to give me a much better estimate, etc.....

Anyone have one laying around i could borrow? I will pay for shipping both ways.

If this happens, i will be posting the case guards for sale. If the price is reasonable (under $50 or so), whoever loans me the case will get one for free!

Anyone?? :crazy:

I have one, PM me your address and I will ship it through my UPS account. Better yet email me at tarfele@yahoo.com.

I read another thread on this subject and saw a creative solution. Where a guy had cut a piece of thin gauge stainless and epoxied over the case. seamed like a pretty darn good fix, and was very low profile, looked good too!

Yes, that will work and your right, it is a damn nice fix!

I am looking for something with a little more coverage though. The underside of my side cover shows some decent dings from a gravel road we were on as well. I am thinking of having a "cover" made that slips over the whole thing. I will post my results.

I got a cover in transit (thank you TARFELE) and will bring it to the machinist when it gets here for a quote.

I will post up my results

Thanks
