Stator Cover has hair line crack causing small oil leak

Hi all I have a 02 monster 620ies, was just wondering if anyone has used a product to repair or if it can be welded. Also looking at replacement second hand covers, but the only 620 ones I can find are pretty rough will a 696, 750 or 900 fit?

Cast aluminum is hard to weld and likely will not work. It's better to replace the part. I do know a guy who JB Welded a small hole in his and it worked, but a Crack is likely to expand and contract with all the heat.

Replace it. You can score a used cover off eBay for about a Franklin, post in the classifieds here, hopefully a fellow member will help you out. To have a good quality welder repair it will cost you about the same. And after that you have to hope they did a good job and deal with the cosmetics. As the Bastard said, the crack will grow even if you JB weld it.

Good Luck
