As a high-side estimate I would guess (hope?) that the side cover never exceeds ~250F / 120C.

There is going to be some radiant heat gain from the exhaust which is going to be hard to estimate.

Maybe someone with an IR temperature gun could shoot a reading on the bottom-side of their stator cover after a good hard ride?

so...a 400F resin should be good enough? I do not want to end up with a bunch of melted resin on my bash plate....
