What is the eliptical silver cover in the middle of the engine cover called? ...and do I need to drain the oil to remove it? Better to ask a stupid question now than to end up with a messy garage floor!:(

Cheers.

That would be your alternator cover. Speedy Moto sells a great looking replacement at a fair price.

Thank you gentlemen,

I figured it could be removed without oil draining - but better to play it safe and ask first!.

Not looking to replace it as I dont have any issues with it as far as aesthetics go... but I have been meaning to get it engraved ever since I got the bike - just for a 'personal' touch. Need to get my wedding band engraved this week and got referred to a very good engraver... so planning to kill two birds...

ps - that bike is not mine (although mine looks very similar) - just the quickest pic I could find on the computer showing the 'alternator cover' - now that I know the name of it;)
