So, Apple Jam, you read all the stuff, heck you even have all the links and over 3000 posts... BUT, you waited until you had a catastrophe before actually addressing it?

Classic.
Glad it did not result in more damage and/or being stranded in the middle of nowhere. :)

If you've got a better link to a place to purchase than another forum, I'll revise my post with it, or I'll just repost your link if that's all you've got. Google got me nowhere this time.

Oh yes, I knew better.
That's why I'm making a BIG point of it. Soooooo many threads started over the years,......
and still some don't see how big of a deal and how widespread the problem is.

I was soooo in the middle of nowhere when it happened. Many, many , many miles from the closest nice road.
But my riding partner had some JB Weld, and we were prepared to spend the night.
We cleaned it up as best we could with a sacrificed T-Shirt, JB Welded it up, and pitched our tents.
In the morning, we rode that bitch 400 miles home.

I now carry JB-Weld, too

BTW, most threads refer to a crack, I broke a 1" x 2" section with the bolt flange clean OFF !!
I could see inside the motor.
Thank goodness this thing's got a dry sump, and I had a half-litre of oil with me, too
When I finally got it welded, peterman took a slightly larger piece of aluminum diamond plate,
and patched it right over the hole

Thats is possibly a better approach than trying to retain the mount.

Since mine was broken clean off, where others were merely cracked, our options were more open.
I'm no welder, but it seemed much easier to patch weld it over the top,
than to but weld the original chunk back on.

And now.....I've got ANOTHER souvenir for my Garage wall !!

There's more to that story than I'll ever want to tell you fuggers.....
.....But, the bike fell down and hit a 6"-ish sharp rock in JUST the right (wrong?) spot.
It was a reasonably normal off, actually. Normal stuff.

Bike was still running, but when we picked it up, she was spewing oil out of that gaping hole

Same thing happened to me with my first ride on a brand new Berg 450, only i did not know it until we stopped to wait for other riders. At first i thought it was gas pouring out Upon closer inspection, there was a hole in my case.
WE used jb weld and i had no extra oil si i rode slowly back to the staging area taking the shortest route.
Ended up cleaning both sides of the clutch cover, using jb weld stik on both sides and it has never leaked in the 3 yrs i had the bike.

PS, your title is misleading. It was not the sidestand that caused it...it was the rock :grin:

Well let's be fair to the rock. It was just sitting there on the ground when a motorcycle landed on it!

Rocks are known to be an extremely patient critters. They can wait for millions of years, and then just at the right moment they would jump at your bike going for the kill....that how rocks are. patient and snicky.
Just saying.

Perhaps we should have a "Welcome new 9x0 owners!" thread?

Add other things to it like:

Trimming the sides of your back shock's mud guards so they don't cut into the swing arm over time...
Pulling the chain-adjustment studs out, coating them with anti seize and putting them back in...
Caution to not bang on the end of your front axle because you'll bugger the threads and they'll tear up the super-soft aluminum end nut (bolt?).
Sitting aside some money to replace your front wheel when you taco it...

etc..
