Ok so you have a hairline crack and want to use jb weld to fix it?

I would suggest pricing a used replacement. Those parts of the bike are not made to bandage up.


but if you decide to then you need to take the piece off anyways, clean it really well, I mean with degreaser, then lightly sand the area below the paint level to raw metals. Mix the JB weld really well follow the directions perfectly on it, or you will end up with a chunk of material that will be brittle and break off.
Dont make a molehill out of it, If you sanded right you will only need to fill the area with a think layer to try and keep the look and feel of a solid piece. Smooth like it is part of the bike. I would suggest repainting this piece after. Let is set for 48 hours before you put it back on the bike to let the mix cure 100%. This or take it to a welder and have him repair it. It would not cost you to much, Im not sure how much a new or used replacement would be.

I think he means the threads in the case to bolt on the cover, which is why I wanted a pic.

I can only think people are watching pennies bro. That is all I can think. Personally I would replace the item.
