PostSubject: Clutch cover fix + slider   Fri Mar 05, 2010 7:04 pm

This is a quick write up on my current progress with the destroyed clutch cover on the fireblade. The plan was to fix the cover and then place a "slider" over the bottom segment of the cover. This is the part that really feels it when the bike goes down on the clutch side. So anyway, Here is clutch cover when I took it off the bike this week.



And here is the knee slider that I will be using to make the slider part of the cover



First step was to fix the hole in the front of it. So after a little mucking about, I managed to get a decent enough weld sorted.



The next step was to clean up the weld from the front, ready to accept the slider. I first started with a rough file and then made my way down to some 120 grit wet and dry. It came out alright, but there is still a small crack to weld. I cant be bothered to do any more welding now its all smooth, so I am just going to use a bit of metal epoxy as it is a non structural part.





The next step is to start cutting and molding the slider to get a decent enough fit on the cover. Once The shape is cut out, I will then smooth everything over and drill + countersink the holes for the mounting bolts.

I will update as and when I make progress

lol Thanks.

As you can see, the cover had a few scratches and one small crack that the welding didn't cover. The next job was to cover all these, just for aesthetic reasons. I used some metal epoxy I had laying about, covering most of the battle scars.



24 hours later I gave everything a quick rub down with various grades of wet and dry paper. I kept sanding until I was satisfied with the finish. I wasn't too bothered about it being perfect as no doubt it is going to thrown down the track very soon anyway
affraid

A couple of coats of high temp paint later and here we have it.
