Hello community 馃憢

I鈥檓 looking for an "Exhaust Valve Cover" horizontal. I need the one with the "Wings" for the front fairing (radiator) to attach to. However, I couldn鈥檛 find this part for sale.

The current one I have has one wing broken, should I solder it instead? It would be ok?

Part number: 24010151AA

Thank you very much!

TIG welding cast parts, especially those that have lived a life exposed to oil, is a fools errand. If a temporary repair is needed, J.B. Weld may suffice. Otherwise buy once cry once.

A good welder with proper preparation will be able to do it. Forget JB weld, it's not strong enough and neither is the 'solder'.

Jim at Precision Chassis in Pa who I have known for 40 yrs can weld beer cans together. I have had a number of cast alum parts welded by him. While I agree w you in respect to a brake or clutch lever or similar, I'd pay the $20-30 for this application and take my chances.
