Help!!!!!! lost side cover

Post by mike75 »

On a beautiful Sunday ride, :-D my left side cover blew off, actually pulled the little rubber grommets out of the frame so far nowhere to be found :( anyway looking for a new tin one to replace it. If anyone has a left side (clutch side) one collecting dust for a 74-75 750GT I am looking to buy one.

Thanks

As I recall Syd's Cycles has a listing for the glass ones.Call 727-522 -3333 ask for Malcome.He might be able to source an original but don't get your hopes up. Steve on this site sells the grommets so the other doesn't take flight.

I had three brand new grommets in it. I think at some point the previous owner (dad) bent the tabs in or changed the hole size in the frame to use a different grommet. so these didn't have much grip. Anyway after doing some community service (weed wacking all the drainage ditches) last night I found the original cover, unfortunately it looks like someone found it first with their car. I think it can be fixed but will have to be re-painted. I did order some dzus 1/4 turn hardware last night and am going to try to make that work on the glass set I have, and keep the steel ones on a shelf.

Thanks
