2014 Adventure R - clutch cover pin hole

I had a slight oil leaked fixed under warranty as a suspected leaking clutch cover gasket ... the leaked returned during an AZBDR trip and troubleshooting revealed it to be a tiny pin hole in the clutch cover itself. Biggest bummer is that the cover is backordered until the beginning of December.

Nothing much to do but wait for the parts, anyone else have this issue?

Depending on where the pin hole is....JB Weld it and ride it till the part comes in.

The leak isn't very bad ... almost no oil loss at all. I'm just gonna let her mark her territory until I get the new cover. Lol ...

KTM Billet clutch cover

I noticed on the KTM Twins website last night that KTM now offers a billet clutch cover for the 1190/1290. The description states that the stock cast clutch cover "is filled with air pockets that make it brittle and easily damaged". Not that you should have to pay $399 to replace your cover but I always like to think that the aftermarket is born out of customers needs so obviously you are not the only one who has experienced issues with the cheap cast aluminum cover.

JB weld it for now or upgrade to the billet part if you want to improve the durability of the cover in regards to rock damage or a tip over that may punch the rear brake lever thru the side of the stock cover leaving you stranded out in the middle of no where. These are bikes designed for adventures right?

Somebody on this forum had the leaking porous cover replaced under warranty, only to have the replacement do the exact same thing. It happens on 1290 Superdukes as well.

The leak is on the inner cover ... things would have to go terribly bad for the brake lever to contact it. Interesting info on the billet cover though, I'm going with the warranty replacement for now but maybe in the future this will be in the cards.

Wait, $399 for a CNC machined part that small? At that price it sounds more like a guy with a dremel is custom making them.

Maybe a photo would shed some light?

What part are we talking about? Clutch cover is not that small.

But it's probably cast aluminium, not CNC machined
