My 06' XR650L tipped over in the garage the other day. I picked the bike up and oil was leaking from the left cover. The shifter put a crease in the cover that was deep enough to form a crack. Luckily my bike was in the garage. I sure would have hated to have been out in the wilderness. I have had many dirt bike, moto-cross style bikes over the years. They could with stand some pretty severe crashes. This was just a simple topple. Hopefully the JB weld will keep the oil where it belongs. Looks like Honda should have deepened the clearance on the cover or re-designed the shifter. I did a search on this & saw that I am not the only one that this has happened to. Kind of a scary dirt bike if you need to worry about severe problems like this while out on the trail.
