RMATV has the cover for $87. Not as bad as I thought. I'll call Lindsey tomorrow I'll send him a picture and see what they say

Actually with just a new oil filter cover and bolt it should be fine. There may still be enough surface area even with the piece in the cover missing. The opening does not go all the way into the side cover. Just a chamber that the bolt goes.

Had a similar get off over christmas, luckily I was near camp. I now have a spare side cover in my parts box and quicksteel in my tool pack for this exact reason.

I'd second this. If you planned on running is as-is you could clean the area really well and then try the quicksteel. Put some release agent (like vaseline) on the bolt and finger tighten into the cover. Then pack in your quicksteel and lightly torque the bolt while it cures. Clean the release agent off the bolt and retighten to spec and your back in business. Just a thought.

Yeah I just ordered all new parts. I called a local shop and was told it would be at least $70 to repair. A new cover was $87.

You've spent $$$$ another $87 is just icing on the cake.

I got the bike tore down this afternoon and started replacing parts and checking things out. Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1344227606.305000.jpg

Then later in the afternoon Fano and Steve stopped by for a margarita/bib party.
We got the front bibs in both mine and Steves wheels (Steve's will be used as spares for the race) but the rear bibs I think we're miss labeled. They are too small for the tires. Instead of a 12 psi feel they are more like 8-9 psi. Way too soft. So it's on the horn with MX1 in the morning to hopefully get this straightened out. Otherwise it's buy smaller tires or run tubes.

I hope to finally get to my tires tonight. What combination of bib and tire were you using? I am so tight on time I really pray mine goes smoothly. I start heading west Friday after work (visiting family on the way).

up front i'm running the Mefo 21 bib from MX1 West and a Dunlop MX71 80/100-21 and on the rear a 18-1 bib and a Maxxis IT 120/100-18.
however i think i was sent the wrong bibs for the rear. They went in way too easy and the tire is too soft. I need to contact MX1 today about it.

If you can't resolve the rear bib issue in time, I'd recommend going with the bridgestone UHD tubes and slime.
Not as much piece of mind, but a very solid combo in my experience.
