Re: Timing cover stripped out

they sell those covers on all of those bike parts sites. they are not too expensive there.

As far as removal, you could try to cut a groove in the hexagonal part of the cover with a dremel. then get a large screwdriver bit for your ratchet and try to remove it that way. the hex part is pretty thick so you shouldn't have to worry about cutting all the way through.

There may be an easier way to do this. I just don't know what it is.

it's the right side cover... took me a minute to find it, i was looking for clutch cover. $14.00
