Did you try getting the stock plastic cover to work with the case saver?

Hoder.

I looked at it and decided to leave it open. It can be done with some time and a dremel moto tool. The cover will need some small modifications.

You're right, if this thing outlasts 2 or 3 stock cables, it's probably worth it. Maybe even just for peace of mind...

Plus it's longer and fits risers better, plus you don't have to carry the spare. And lastly it does make the pull a little easier though not as much as I'd hoped. I'm sold on one, I just need some $$

The only downside of the hydraulic clutch is that failures tend to be a little tougher to fix on the trail. I have seen a few guys now stranded from hydraulic clutch problems (KTMs mostly). IMO, carrying a spare cable is not a big deal and easy/fast to swap over if needed. But it sure would be nice to have an easier pull for 2-finger clutching.

Noted, and saving. Now if someone could just come up with a mod for the airbox...

I ended up just hacking mine up to accomodate the pipe mod I did and ended up with a pod filter on there for the time being, but I'm looking for a better idea. It gets the air it needs now, but it's probably even more vulnerable to water. My original goal was to Y it around the frame and bring the filters up, but nothing I can find fits in that tight space.

Which Casesaver?

DeBandi,
Which case saver is that and where does one find it?

Thanks, Dave

Amen on the case saver. I put one on after xymotic's chain failed, and now am doubly happy to have it.

(this may look like a duplicate of the above photo, but it's different. Same case saver design, though.)

+1 on that. Thanks again xymotic for the tip on the case saver.

Case savers....

All this talk of case savers has me also thinking of protecting the left side crankcase cover from the shifter punching through it. Anyone here fabricated an aluminum plate to protect the soft (magnesium I think) side cases?
