Clutch Cover

Ok guys I was cleaning my clutch cover to get ready for paint and I noticed some hair line cracks in the case. I though at first they were just casting type defects but apon closer inspection they go althe way through
So it looks like the basket exploding took another part out. Anyone have a Clutch cover for the ol 2000 they would part with on the cheaper side to help a fellow rider out??

Epect nothing and you'll be surprised of something

I know you're into saving $$$ so here's a tip: why not just fix it with J & B Welding (from the inside) ?
...this should take care of your problem -

Thank you for the idea I did the J/B Weld temporary fix. I want something that’s more permanent I have too much money wrapped up in my bike to take a chance on a sudden loss of oil if the case lets go or something clogs the pick-up screen and causes terminal failure. When I said on the cheaper side I was figuring around $50 to $75 for a clean used cover. There are a few people that have shown up on the board recently that seem to be a little too proud of any used parts they might be trying to sell. I’m all for helping out fellow forum members first before going to E-Bay or elsewhere but that being said I’m not going to buy someone’s used parts and get screwed when I can pony up $30 more and get the same item new shipped to my front door with shipping included. I do like to save $$$$ who doesn’t? I’d have no problem buying new but I have already set my budget of what I want to spend on the ol girl this season as far as upgrades go.

Here’s an example of something that I would consider a little over priced that I found on E-Bay
99 05 zx12 Chrome engine covers zx12 chrome clutch cover zx12 chrome stator OEM | eBay
I don’t know maybe this is going rate for 2 chrome covers for a 12?
Thanks Wylde I was wondering about the what years would fit and I guess its gonna have to be E-Bay after all

I had to repair something on the motor on my Chevelle and bought some of the J B stick its a great product its a no mess clay that you blend together that works very well. I didn't mention it but I don't think the cracks are very bad. I tried the old flashlight trick and saw absolutely no light from behind. And luckily the cracks are not at the edge and are on the top part of the cover. This ol girl is getting expensive

you could, i call it a windage tray,, just an interior plate screwed inside the cover,, the bearings i wouldnt,, just order them from ronayers.com,, i mean you could but they are inexpensive so i would just go new,, its just the headache of a new part and for what he is asking it makes it worse... a couple of bearings, seal, interior trays,,probably 50 bucks.... all adds up! just my opinion.... here is the Microfishe,, take a look...
