JPD Bomber Parts
« on: Apr 14, 2017, 08:38:48 AM »
Hey guys I've been sourcing the JPD bomber covers from eBay one at a time as I find them for cheap.  Recently got the primary drive cover but it did not have the little instruction sheet with it.  The first thing that stood out is the JPD does not have the big hole for the fill plug like the stock does.  Does the fill plug get removed for the JPD cover or does the cover go over it?

    As far as I can tell,the bomber cover hides the fill plug.The OEM cover simply has a hole in it for the plug.The plug isn't threaded into that piece at all.
    At least that's what I'm getting from looking at pics and part lists.
    I'd rather die on a motorcycle than live without one.

    That's what I'm thinking but wanted to double check.  Knowing how they built the reservoir covers to go over stock covers instead of just replacing them I'm thinking they took the same approach here.  Make it big enough to go over existing hardware, appears to be their motto.

      Actually I think you remove the stock cover and the bomber fits in its place.It just hides the fill plug at the same time,which isn't a bad thing IMHO

      Correct, the stock covers are removed to place the aftermarket covers.

      Thanks guys!  Getting ready to do an oil change this weekend so I'll tackle the covers at the same time!

      Do you have the gasket and the 2 crush washers for the cam cover replacement?You have to remove the cam drive gear cover to replace that one because it's bolted on from inside the engine

      I do not have the cam cover but I did notice it's screwed from the inside so I'll tackle that when I pick it up.  Thanks
