Hydraulic Side Cover

 

 

The Hydraulic Side Covers was one of the first parts in the FF product line. We took away all the ‘fat’ of the standard aftermarket side cover and left the function. The true art of any mechanical part is the function. The parts that make it happen, that do the work and yield the results. We sucked the side cover up to the bearing door as much as possible by utilizing aerospace derived hydraulic ball plugs, that enabled the bleeder screw and feed line ports to be right next to the gasket surface. We even put the conventional transmission dipstick on a diet.  Knowing what’s it like to be on the end of that wrench, hustling to get that bike done, ‘just right’ we tooled up these covers to offer either front or rear banjo fitting ports. Smashed out of virgin aluminum stock, just down I-94 in greater Chicago, these side covers are forged on 1500 ton presses with a beautiful one hit die. The result is the tidiest design possible, yielding the strength necessary to get the job done, and a smooth surface finish to match.
