Engine case covers

I don't know what they are officially called but they are the round things on both sides of the motor at the bottom. It looked like the previous owner must have dropped it on both sides and they have small scratches. Could I replace these? Where do you buy them? How hard are they to replace?

I dropped my bike last week and scratched the crap out my right handside one,I took it off sanded it, and spray painted it matte black as a great looking but cheap fix.

Go to the Ronnie's website and find the part numbers, you can either order directly from them or get your local Honda dealer to order them for you.

The right handside is just for looks you can take it of with and no fluids will be lost, but you will from the left handside one.

both sides can be replaced! If sitting on the bike the one on the right is just a cover and can be replaced without any gaskets to worry with, the one on the left has the altenator in it and oil will spill so i would time it with an oil change just for kicks. But both are easy to fix.

When you say right do you mean the side where the oil fill-up is?

They have it on the site above for $35.

05 COVER, CENTER

Do you think it comes painted? Maybe I just just use some touch up paint.

sorry thought you talking about the part in front of that one...easy to replace though but make sure you take out the rubber gromets (sp?) where the screws go and the big one that covers the circumfrence of the part.
