Default Cracked chain case cover on Wifes 2014 ZR 7K LTD

2014 ZR 7000 Ltd
Chain case cover issue.

Cracked cover. (two of the ears broke off)

Need new one (chaincase cover) as there isn't a fix for it.
Replace only.

Also, What is the possible cause of this wear in the bottom of the cover itself? ( inside wear)

Final issue...
Late Last season the speedometer wasn't working properly. It was bit or miss.
Figured it was a bad Speedo sensor.
Friggen thing pops right out of position.

Time for some lovin I guess.

Push on your dealer you have some time, my bubby has a '14 I was at the dealer and told them he has a broken ear on his cover, they told me to have him bring it in and they would take care of it. The Cover is like $175

Bring up the fact the part number changed because of this issue

Cover, Chain Case (inc. 42-47)
was 1702-368 is 1702-495

I'd loosen the track, unbolt the caliper, pull lower gear off, and stare at the bearings while wiggling the shaft. Although that little wear mark is not entirely uncommon, and it could be just fine and never wear any more than that anyway. New cover might not even make contact.

How many miles? Me experience with the 7000 once the shafts get a bit of wear the reverse will bind up and not work right. That reverse chain case is complete nightmare of an engineering job.

I will certainly speak with my dealer.
I don't have high hopes but it's worth a shot.
Pricy chaincase cover that's for sure.

Is this the first time you removed the CC? I think the only way to crack the ears would be installing.

My '15 XF9000 LTD had the rear cover tab busted off just like yours,, you could see the o-ring . That was at 1300 miles. Was having a Hyvo gear/chain installed and that's when it was noticed.
