wanted to vent the 999 motor's clutch case cover. thanks to mental for posting some gutsy DIY stuff. i've got some cleaning up to do but here's a preliminary pic:

and here's a link to mental's thread on the subject for those who may want to review:

Most awesome.


There were a bunch of riders at my New Year’s Eve party, and they all made mention of how cool the open clutch looked.

And the best part is.... it’s free.

Re: having a "mental" moment with my clutch case cover... (Mental998)

not to be a worry wart, but how does this affect crashability? i'm going to do this to mine this winter, but just kinda curious since you do lose alot of the support between the "posts".

Re: having a "mental" moment with my clutch case cover... (slowpoke)

if you hollow some area between the posts but leave a bridge connecting them like my previous unit done by foxperformance:



then i think you're ok... with how little meat i left on this itteration, i think i'm pretty screwed in a bad crash. should be ok for a low-side because i'm going to be running cyclecat frame sliders and hard-mount footpegs.

but i'm going minimalist this go around so if i crash... oh well!

so do you want to trade an uncut one for the one you had done by fox?

I know.... I've said it a gozillion times, but mine survived this....



The STM ti wire guard slid on the ground long enough to rub through one of the wires, but still held up. My guess is, it will make it through most crashes.

Layne - That was just a light crash; what would happen to the cover in a really serious get-off?

honestly i would go with the foxperformance one. its 75 bucks INCLUDING shipping.

I know dremel work and machine work, and making it 100% even/nice with home tools is well, a hell of a task.

i guess there comes a point where if i can't do something perfect, i rather pay a little money to have it done for me.

Now if ya got a mill......

Re: (spawn_x)

good point and that's why i went with fox's service the 1st go around. this time, it's a bit different what i want to accomplish so i did it myself using mental's technique as a guide. i'll post another pic when it's actually all spiffed up and done.

yep. i welded an M10 nut to the backside of the mounting plate before welding it to the frame and i drilled a locater hole for the pin to prevent rotation. it of course also goes through the aluminum spacer as well.

it's something i worked with norm on. he provided the guard in a different configuration (spreading out as far as the mounting hole i'd ground out of the clutch-case-cover). i realy liked the look of it but with the venting i did on the case-cover, it wouldn't quite work so i modified it for more abreviated coverage. i like the STM titanium guard but it's not quite what i wanted.

i posted some updated pics of the s4 in the monster forum's "monster challenge" thread for whoever's interested in the progress:

sorry for the hijack, Strati but I got a question.

I just ordered the STM clutch cover that is in Mentals photos. I got it here and it didnt fit. I sent it back and just got it returned with same problem. The only way I can describe it is the cover is too shallow. The two bars are hitting the clutch springs when I try to install it. I justed called Casoli (where I ordered it) and they said they could refund the money but that is it. I really want this part.

Is the cover made for aftermarket clutches?
Is there anyway to phuk up a cover install? I have SS springs and CC retainers. Does that matter?

sorry again for the hijack

looks BA BTW strati


-----edit-------

Strati, Why cant I see any of your springs sticking out? All I see is the retainers and the Pressure Plate.
