Engine Case Damaged at Sprocket Cover Mount

Picked up this 01 6R and have an issue with the case where the sprocket cover attaches.

(Disclaimer: Having this area built back up and retapped... so I am going to resolve it.)

However, I have some riding buddies who have the same scenario from their "catastrophic chain failures". They claim it is not an issue and I am making a big deal out of nothing... However, this being the bolt which holds the spacer on the rear of the sprocket cover, I cannot imagine this is advisable, but I am wondering how many people, if any on this forum ride with this broken off.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry for that. I am not with the bike right now, but I grabbed a screenshot for clarification. The circled pin which the sprocket cover threads into... The mount pictured is where that pin threads into the engine case.

Thanks again!

I don't think I would get very excited about that one, TBH.

If it's the mount for the stand off that holds the cover over the front sprocket, and it's not caused a crack in the engine case to allow an oil leak.... probably not all that significant. You still have at least two screws holding the cover in place, which should suffice. Not a load bearing member.

If you can, I would however use some metal epoxy and bond the mount back in place so you could use all three mounting points.

They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
