84 XT600 Clutch Cover Needed.

I'm in need of a right side clutch cover for my 84 XT600. It has a hair line crack about the kick starter that goes all the way to the edge of the case. because of of the stress from the kick starter the crack cracked through my jb weld attempt to fix it. It doesn't leak bad, it just seeps a very little amount of oil. I would like to get another case so when the crack does worsen I'm not stuck without a bike. And I don't have the cash for a brand new one. Thanks!

I,d be tempted to lay the bike on its side........remove clutch cover and have it welded.......refit and no need to drain the oil....its an option and cheaper than new...

You should have it TIG welded and it'll be good as new or better!

Yep watch out there, a post a few months back had similar problems, had it welded (tig) thinking it was alloy & wrecked the cover, magnesium is very different material to weld (google it).

There are heaps for sale on ebay.

None out there at the moment (worldwide) normally the US has two or three for sale & Europe as well, one will turn up in a week or two guaranteed.

One here for sale, i will warn you though it is very hard to get these guys to ship internationally (i have tried many times).

Use Google translate & send him a grovelling email & you never know your luck, but most of the time they do not even answer your email.

If you know someone in France ask them to ring them.

I bought an 88 because of the kick starter, guy thought it was cracked, but it wasn't. Anyway I now have a 3/8 hardish rubber stop for the kick lever to hit and gradually stop. I'm hoping to not have it crack. I did find several just a couple weeks ago by going to the salvage yards ebay store. Not all items are listed or come up in a search so you may have to spend some time going through pages and pages of meaningless parts to find it, they are out there and generally not that pricey, There is a low mileage motor for sale right now that is awfully tempting, just to keep the bike alive for a good long while.

I welded a "kickstop" - thick piece of 316 stainless steel - directly to my footstand!

but yeah, it can be TIG welded if you have the correct filler rod!

Subscribe to your thread & you will be notified if anyone replies.

Correct me if i'm wrong lads but would an alloy 3AJ one fit his 84?

It has the knockout for the kickstart & is a common modification for 3AJ guys to nick the kickstart mechanism out of any of the year kicker bikes.
