any "long term" wear results?
how does the anodizing hold up?
does it start to look just as worn as the cases do?

Long Term Wear on the Trailjammer Designs Case Savers?

Hi Capt. REDBEARD! The Case Savers hold up really well considering the job they are designed to do. They don't 'wear down' like the OEM case will do over time. It really depends on your riding style. If you're worried about cosmetic look, I'd recommend the Natural Finish. The Natural Finish Case Saver can be scuffed up w/a brillow pad at any time and give it an almost new look whenever you want. Powder Coated versions...well,...are powder coated and depends how much scraping goes on.
I have one on my '08 530 that I do a lot of desert riding on and it's black powder coated version. It has 4k miles on it and it's not nearly as worn as this black powder coated one below that was raced really hard by a pro level rider. Let me know if you have any other questions.


This one was raced in the Redbull Romaniacs race. This is by far the most beat case I've ever seen and I'm not surprised after being put through one of the hardest races in the world if you ask me. He was able to finish without a broken case or oil leaking out. I know there's a lot of you Trailjammer Designs Customers out there....post up your long term wear pictures if you'd like :)

YES! I have an '07 RFS 525/450 Clutch Cover coming my way. I should see it real soon. One of my customers, Rob A., mentioned I had a cover he bought that was very close to his 525 so that got me on the search again for a Clutch Cover. Turns out another customer of mine has his engine apart doing a top-end and is letting me borrow his cover for a week. I hope it works out. I also have a Yamaha '03-'09 WR250F in the works. Thanks and stay posted on the FB page too!

bonus points if you can still take off the center piece independently. not a deal breaker either way.

What do you mean 'center piece'? Do you mean just the clutch cover since it's a 2 piece cover? It shouldn't be a problem. It will mount like the others coming right up to the edge where the mounting bolts go.

I think he means "don't block the holes" (that mount the center cover), so sounds like you're on same page.

No worries. Take a look at the case saver above for the yamaha. There's good pics there. It would never cover the bolt holes. You guys will love them and they will be super strong!

Except the Yamaha is slightly different in terms of the bolt holes. I assume Clapped (hoser, wtf ) was talking about notching it (or the cover would overhang slightly the six recessed bolt areas). I figure notching isn't a big deal, you're already doing it for the oil plug in the Yammie. I'd rather have this than have it be a smaller diameter leaving a slight amount of the cover unprotected.

Random pic I found on the net cos I'm too lazy to take my own:

Cool. I'll play around w/the notching. It's a pain to get that exact shape on the case, but I've got some ideas. Waiting to get my hands on the cover...maybe it'll show today. I'll have to contact my customer who's sending it :) Man, Clapped...LOL...I don't know how you build covers up there in Canada. haha j/k If I can do it, it'll be awesome. Cheers!

Hi Jolly,
Thanks for asking! I don't currently make the '12-'14 WR450F, but would like to. If you have a case to send me for a prototype, I can try and make one. Some of the '12s I see have a weird stamping/design on the case. That can make it harder. Same w/the '14 YZ450Fs.
