Q: I have a 1989 Honda CBR1000F-K and its looks are spoiled by a scuffed round right-hand engine cover. It appears not to have a part number that I can find anywhere, even my Haynes Manual gives nothing away. Can you help point me at someone who might know how to replace this?
A: You could try to re-spray it using a special colour-matched paint from RS or similar, but in my experience the match is not perfect. The simplest solution though is just to buy new parts, as these are still available as Honda spares at a total cost of about £40. Ask your dealer for: 11311-MZ2-610 Cover, right, crankcase, 11396-MW3-601 Gasket, right cover.Enjoy more Classic Motorcycle Mechanics reading in the monthly magazine. Click here to subscribe.
