Well my brother has the bike itch now that I have one so he asked to take it down the road for a short trip. While turning around to come back he got into some loose gravel and next thing he knew the bike was on its side with his leg under it holding it up. Damage was cracked the Visor, Side 1 on the fairing and scratched the hell out of the Crankcase cover on the left side. He was ok, but was not looking forward to getting back and telling me the news. I took it rather well looking back :spank Looking in the service manual it says you have to drain the oil and the coolant to replace the crankcase cover side one. Can anyone confirm this? I was hoping it would be a simple pop off the old one and put on the new one, but now I'm not sure. Since the service manual only details removing the generator and the starter clutch I wonder if it's necessary to drain the oil and the coolant if your only going t replace the cover. There is a gasket behind it so I'm a little worried.
