How much to fix?

My buddy dropped a bike similar to one i was looking at. Here is the pic.


He dropped it on the side and the fairing is messed and the round silver part on that picture got cracked and oil spilled out of it.. how much you think it is gonna cost to fix? His deductible is $700 should he claime or fix it at a shop (exclude fairing damage)

Definitely fix it.....You can probably get the parts on ebay for pretty cheap. Even if it does cost a little more now, it would still beat paying higher insurance premiums next year.

OH... well I still think you could get it fixed cheaper off EBay than the $700 deduct.

Just hit up ebay...

Look for the fairings...

The engine case is his Stator Cover.

Honda CBR 600 91-98 Stator Cover & Gasket NEW OEM

Question is does this keep oil in the bike? Because buddies bike leaked bad.. or maybe.. there is something behind that that he messed up.. that could get really costly.

Nope its just oiled from the oil pump. The stator is your bike's version of a alternator. Leave the bike on the side stand which will pull most of the oil out of that area.

Pull off the old cover
clean gasket off engine case
replace new gasket on engine with some high temp RTV silicone
put on new cover and torque bolts.


Now you will find that sense the stator uses magnets it is sometimes a firm pull to remove the cover.

$300 seems high to fix the stator cover. You guys can do it your self.

Yep! Its a common part to get rashed and cracked in a crash for all the F2's and F3's.

Be sure to clean ALL of the old gasket off and use a high temp silicone or something similar when putting the new stator cover back on. It will save you some time trying to find out why the bike leaks oil after everything is back together. I had to learn the hard way

This is absolutely paramount. Trust me...I know from experience relplacing an oil pan. The job had to be done a second time because I failed to scrape the old material from the engine...thus leaking oil all over the place.

I would recommend posting on racing forums for parts.
F2's are very common on the track. I used to have a complete set of spares including 2 engines.

A wire brush is essential to cleaning off the old gaskets.
