The case is already off, think Trevor has one? I have a bit set aside, I dunno which way to go.
Trevor can get one. I thought you had other plans next week?
I do, but I still wanna get it fixed. I might want to go to San Yo when nobody's around I guess i could get a gasket set, try the JB weld, and then if it doesn't work get the new case before SanYo in November. It won't really hurt it any worse will it?
Magnesium is easily welded, but while cracks in cases caused by impact damage are no problem at all, corrosion damaged parts must be blast cleaned first, which in some cases leads to the damage becoming much worse, and becoming difficult/impossible to repair.
Best option for your case is to blast clean, then repair the damage immediately using Devcon titanium putty. There is a good possibility that will work for the time you own the bike, but without removing all of the corrosion with blast cleaning the repair will only last a short time.
No giggle and "told you so" dance. I was really hoping that it was just a seal and not a magnesium case issue. That sucks.
Don't worry, I'll hold off until next month on telling you about my plans to make a Jennifer Aniston mask for your homely car.
I thought that this was on the main case and not a side case. Not so bad, but still gonna be pricey.
The evidence -
for that i would clean it (water, Acid, lots of water) than braze it.
Evidently one of the times I was upside down jarred the clutch cover o-ring, which greatly enhanced the leakability of my tranny oil. This is more humiliating than a skidmark in my breaking bad tighty-whities.
OK, so I sourced a new used aluminum one, and all of the seals, I just have to wait for the parts. On the one hand, I wasn't gonna be able to ride much the next 2 weekends, on the other, I was just getting comfortable on the new (to me) bike. So my noob journey continues, one step forward...
Thanks for the replies and patience with my whining!
The case is about $100.00. I had to replace mine on my 05 rev a couple of years ago. I would recommend replacing it as opposed to jb weld.
I like the braze it idea, but for $100, not worth the effort.
When I found one I just decided not to risk it. This bike is gonna get treated like a princess
Lance treated her like the W_ _ R _ he is.:eek1
I always had a weakness for a lady with a chekered past
I straightened out her rear end
So, since my early retirement at the RCR gave me a little spare time today, I went out to work on the Princess, she got new levers, (That fit my petit hands better and shouldn't bend )
and a bit of new adornment for her shapely rear
I will call on the case tomorrow, I HAVE to have her ready for San Yo in Nov.
Do me a favor, either rotate the picture 180 or rotate the chain block 180.
