Down...

I knew it was coming, gravel drives and being distracted don't help. Layed my 9'er down and banged up the side cover (passenger) fairly good. I'll try and post a picture. She snatched me down hard enough to separate a couple of ribs.

So...anybody gotta take-off/replaced passenger side transmission cover plate for a '06 919 laying around?...

Yea, just embarrassed to say the least...

Separated ribs is painful but it's a nice reminder to pay attention next time AND repair that driveway...

Gotta find a replacement cover OR live with the scratches as scars have been said to be visual reminders as well...

Ouch. I've had rib injuries. Those are painful. Don't read any of XRMikey's joke post or else your recovery time will be extended.

I know what it feels like. Just did it to the bike this weekend for the second time total and on the left side again. If you can't find anybody selling one check out www.servicehonda.com Direct from the factory, ready to install, and lots cheaper than from a dealership.

Sucks man, sorry to hear it. I just ordered a crash protector, looking forward to installing it, as mine has had a similar topple in the driveway (which is ALL gravel). Hate seeing my baby all marred all up

Now that's funny and at some one else's expense!!!

I do have a scared up engine cover but i don't think it would help you out much unless you wanted to do some body work to it.

How about "right side" or "oil fill side" or "starboard"??? I know, "passenger" is cage-speak I don't get many passengers anyway...hehe

I was able to completely sand out scratches in the clutch cover then repaint it black on mine when I had a minor touch down. If it's just the clutch cover it's very soft aluminum. I used an autobody style long board and started with 80 gt paper then went to 220. Painted with Semi-flat black Rust Tough Krylon.. good stuff! It's just a cover.



BTW, a new one is under $30 from Ron Ayers last time I checked. You dropped on the cheaper side!

Yup, that's the cover...along with the other roundish plate/cover in front of the clutch cover. I may just try your fix...sounds easy enough...THANKS!
