Swing arm cover thingymajig
« on: March 01, 2019, 12:20:33 pm »
I have lost the metal cover that goes over the swing arm mounting point (I dont know what you call that part)
Does anyone have one lying around from an old bike or something???
@BakgatJaco you stripped a GS, do you still have that part lying around?

The screw thread is still stuck in the hole.  Those covers are all aftermarket.  I got mine from Wild at Heart back in 2011.  Relatively cheap.

I went back to Atlantic Motorrad 2 days after buying my GS when I noticed what looked like a missing cover...
