And yer right bro, If it works, It works. call me a perfectionist If ya want, but I just cant run around showing off my bike with a busted case. And while changing a case aint the easiest job but what better way to learn? These are a very simple engine with only a crank and clutch arm to deal with. Once ya see it you just say AWWWW SHYIT, THATS EASY!!! Just don't forget the three screws under the clutch.
