Probably worth checking on flea bay for a used one. Unless someone here has a take off one they are not using to help you out.

I think I have a spare but it's from a 07' 450.

That's gonna be a tough one, being so old and not a current FCR model.

I don't think the CR/MX version will fit your slant-style FCR, but if does I have extras

+1 on the JB weld. That stuff is amazing.

 

 Screws do not need to be near that tight, especially on carbs and other castings, like brake master and slave cylinders.
