ok thats not my bike but im wondering whats the little case in the middle of the lower fairing called, previous owner has dropped the bike and i need new frame sliders and that thing, i think its an engine case or crank case.
the circular thing right below the framslider in the middle of the fairing thanks.
i am thinking that is it.... now my next question is if it just covers the altenator i should be able to change this out easy. becuase there wouldnt be any fluid and such behind this thing correct? i could just get this and get a gasket
I dont think there is any fluid in your alternator but I'm not one to ask on that. I know your crank case and gear box have fluid. Be careful if you open it up, it might hold something in place and then youve got a problem if it falls out. Check your MOM or if you dont have one buy it or a Haynes manual.

Uhm... there IS oil behind that stator cover! Some will leak out when you remove the cover, but you can limit it by putting the bike up on a rearstand etc instead of leaving it on the kickstand
You will also have to have silicone or gasket maker handy to seal up area where the wires to the stator go through plus you might need a new OEM gasket if you tear the one up on the bike removing the cover & you will need to use red loc-tite on the 4 bolts holding the coil to the cover.
