Could the holes be drilled for Grease fittings that were never installed?

Mr. Egg is back in the general area.

Before grabbing Mr. Egg we had to deal with a flat tire. (note to self, always carry spare inner tubes on long trips!). We found a Harley dealer that was open on Sunday about 50 miles away with the right size inner tube! So it was a late start to the day.
We made our way north through cold wet New Brunswick over the course of a couple of days, then on to PEI. The next morning it was my turn for a flat tire. I pumped it up and limped onto the ferry heading for Nova Scotia. At the ferry terminal they had free Wi-Fi, and that is where my friend learned of a family emergency. There was no choice but to make a B-line for Baltimore after fixing the flat. Nobody in New Glasgow had my size inner tube or had time to fix it, so I bought a can of Fix-A-Flat (best $5 I ever spent!).
The first day we did 500 miles in cold heavy rain (thank God for Gerbings) and the second day 700 miles in the sunshine. (note to self, get cruise control and a new fatter ass).

Mr. Egg was headed to Meat Cove, the northern most point on Cape Breton, and the most beautiful campground I have ever been in (many years before).
So since Mr Egg couldn't make it to that most northern point, he is at this one instead. Happy hunting!



The money shot.


Pass through these


At the end of a winding road there is this parking lot


Directly opposite the parking lot entrance is this pathway.


Walk down it till you come to this view.


Walk to the very end of the point.


At the end are these two bushes, head to behind the left one.


Under the concrete wall where the helmet is, Mr Egg is resting.




Directly under the E


Mr Egg will be!


Apologies for the late posting, it is because of server issues.

I got the swingarm off without loosening the mount, but it wasn't going back on until the mount was loosened.
Now all I need are the parts from Cogent.....

I don't remember exactly how long it took to get mine but when they came I remember thinking ,man that was fast. It was less than 2 weeks.When I ordered them it was FEB. and he told me it was his busy time of the year and it still took less than 2 weeks.

Probably a flaw in the casting and/or an over torqued mounting bolt.

The way it's broke, I wouldn't worry about it. Just don't over torque the bolt. Not much that can be done with it anyway besides replace the case or sell it.

I don't have the fragment that chipped off - that must have been lost when the damage was first done. I suspect it was that time I hurt my foot on that water crossing - I forget what ride that was. Camp Cow Crap? Bent the shit out of my panniers. Also bent the shit out of my happy trails engine guards. Bent the shit out of my foot too, but that got better.

Tom if you are looking to lighten up the KLR, I don't think that is going to remove much weight.

JB Weld would only be a cosmetic fix, it will break right off when the mount is tightened.

There is no easy way to fix it or really any reason to attempt to do so. There appears to be enough of it left to suffice. Torque the bolt to spec and forget it.

If it bothers him, the only way to really fix it is weld it up and re-machine it, or replace the case half. Either one would involve completely disassembling the engine. It would be a lot easier and cheaper to sell it.

If it was mine, I'd put it back together and ride it.
