Help with stator cover damage?

When I got the bike, there was some rash on the stator cover. I've seen something like what im about to describe but dont know what it is. What I wanted was some sort of puddy to apply to the stator cover to fill in the rash. Once dried, I want to sand it down to smooth everything out and finish it off my painting it.

Would anyone know what this puddy is called?

you might just consider getting a new (or used) stator cover off ebay or some other website. get a new gasket as well if the fiche calls for it. you can always sell the old one on ebay, even with a little rash, someone might buy it.

If it doesn't have a hole in it, then don't bother fixing it. Unless you're really picky about how it looks, then just get a brand new one. Don't forget to replace the gasket too.

from personal experience order the gasket......if you use gasket maker/rtv sealant it feels in the bolt holes and when u torque the bolts down the residue in the bolt holes can crack your engine block.....

$3 gasket is cheaper than an ebay motor

Just sand it down smooth if the rash isn't too deep. Then prime and paint.

+1. sand it smooth (knock the off it), wipe it with rubbing alcohol, and paint(with it off the bike, dummy). Definitely get a gasket, or plan on making one.

i wouldn't bother fixing it until you have a few more miles under your belt. the odds are against you that you're going to lay it down again anyways.
