side engine covers

9 posts in this topic

hello all, I crashed my xrl yesterday destroying the left side clutch cover. No biggie, but to replace it will be about $135.00 in parts. In order to avoid this from happening again are there any protective engine covers out there. Any replies would be greatly appreciated. :cheers:

FV, was it dropped on the ground, or an obstacle?

I have a fair sized skid-plate and the stock guards still in place, and that's about as good as you can do without some customizing I think.

Hey, where in NY? I'm near Cortland.

Dave, I dropped it hard on the left side smashing it into the asphaltsending the shift lever into the clutch cover. Total bummer, I had the 650l for about a week trying to do the stupid crap I did as a kid 20 years ago on a MX bike. Anyway lesson learned. I live in Clayton, just north of Watertown.

Dave,

I was checking those out last night. I am really new to this forum so I am still getting used to it. Great site for info. I just bought thatXR650l like one week before I wrecked it. I have some plans on turning it into a supermoto bike in the future but I think I am going to start off with modifying the powerplant first. Dave what kind of skid plate do you have????
