Clutch Cover Failure

Postby rungrandpa » 10:35 pm Oct 05 2018

The small aluminum part on the clutch cover that the governor shaft comes out of broke around the base. Not sure what happened. Anyone else have this happen? I'm wondering if it's caused by something or just an unusual failure for me. It's on a 1990 KDX 200.

Was it running odd before it broke?

Where is it cracked??
Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

PLEASE! Do not "dip" PWK Keihin carbs in Berryman's to clean them! It will damage the internal o-ring (jet block gasket).

Around the base. I did a patch job and ordered a clutch cover off e-bay.

I've been riding with a clutch cover I repaired with JB Weld for the last 3 years.

That's what I used. Took it for a quick ride and it seemed fine. I'll put the other cover on this winter.
