I got bored yesterday and since I am currently unemployed, I have no money for mods. I took a look at the front sprocket cover and thought, " I can vent that". :D

After some Dremel time, this is the result. Not perfect, but not bad for free.

That's funny that you posted it, cause I did that over the weekend last week as well since I just didn't want to pay for one..

I paid $40 for a vented front cover that doesn't look any better than that. My friend, you don't need a job -- you need venture capital. :D

Cool. Now... you should pull your clutch side case and vent it. It's real easy to do and also free.

Maybe if I really get brave.

Nice handywork!!
Good looking paint as well!
Tell me, so I will know....why vent this cover?
I don't think there is much heat here and the weight of the plastic or
aluminum removed equils about 1 shoe lace.
If for no other reason.....
It really looks sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and I guess that is the answer to my question.

I received an aluminum one as an extra when I got my Charlie Smith clutch. The reason you need venting here is to recognize when grease build up occurs from the chain and remove it.

That's a great line to tell your wife if you want to get a new vented cover ;) , but IMHO, o-ring type chains don't need anything more that a bit of WD-40 every now and then. I use WD-40 to clean all that thick crap off the chain as soon as I take it out of the box.

I do have a cool BFP C/F vented cover. I got it because I love C/F. :D

Oh man, that's a good troll... :) Ok, now I need the following topics covered and that will make this forum complete:

1. Synthetic vs. Dino Juice
2. Shafties can't wheelie
3. Fur vs. Carbon Fibre
