Bummer on the cracked case, remember there are many other bikes that use the Rotax in these so widen your search to include those models and you'll get the cover faster. Ask Irk, he has the list.

Yep, Can Am DS650. I forgot to search for that. Thanks for the reminder. This bike is a weird deal because half the parts are the same as the Can Am, and the other half are Aprilia Pegaso LOL

Here's one for cheap. I wish I thought of this last week. But my repair should hold up fine. I need to get better pics of this one price is right but the pics look like I'm drunk looking at the computer screen. https://www.ebay.com/itm/2004-Can-Am-Bombardier-DS-650-Magneto-engine-Cover-Guard-Stater-Generator/333167292323?hash=item4d92516fa3:g:l84AAOSwn9VaXkmn

I saw that one too, they both have crappy pics LOL if I can get some better pics I will probably buy one after the trip. I'll just leave what I have on there until the next oil change though, when you pull either side cover on this bike you have to pull the tank and prime the oil system

Put another 50 miles on the bike last night. I blasted up and back the highway 25 miles then hit some back roads for a bit. Bike performed well. I got new boots last week and I’m still getting used to them so upshifting has been interesting. I may try rotating the pedal up one tooth to give me more room underneath.

Lots of buffering without the windscreen so after I got home and ate I set to fixing that up.

I sanded back all the old adhesive and crap, then G/Flexed everything back together with a layer fiberglass cloth on either side. I did the same on the side that wasn’t broken just to add some reinforcement.

Nice work. You can paint that out after to hide it and it will look factory.
