Cool The XS1100 Left side cover latch tab repair kits are ready!

They're Here!!!

We finally have a left side cover latch-tab repair for the XS1100's. It is hand machined the old way. They are made from 6061 Aluminum and are attached with a 18-8 Stainless Steel fastener. The washer is just 7/16" in diameter, screw head and washer together are only 1/8" in height. They are small and not very noticeable.

The first 8 members to purchase a repair kit, gets a new rubber grommet, to help hold the right side cover on as well. The cost with shipping is $32.99 to the USA and Canada. Europe will be $5.00 more due to the cost of postage. Send me a PM for payment details.

Thanks,
Larry

JAT but how do you recommend tightening it so it will not turn on the mounting screw? Maybe something as simple as a dab of silicone or as involved as making another stub stick out of the repair that would protrude into the side cover and keep it from turning. I suppose once it is locked in place it would not be able to turn at all. Mostly just looking, admiring and thinking out loud.

Once locked into place (thread locker required & properly tightened) it's solid and will not move under normal conditions. If you grab it with a wrench and try to turn it, it probably will, but that's not normal.
