Can the window handle some stones bashing into it compared to the oem aluminum cover?



The plastic junk is already cracked.

Which is why i mentioned earlier that i do not recommend JLS shit. Its shit.



I have my OEM cover, just havent reinstalled it.

I have an 8 month old kid and am in the middle of moving.

I dont hardly ride the thing.

I'll let it get up top temp while idling the way it sits and check the oil.



Thanks for the help and thanks for hanging in there with me lol

Yeah, and I like my sight glass one. But those full clear covers are asking to be smashed and oil pour everywhere. Apparently they've had a few different people complaining of issues.

Yup. Even the guys with lock up clutches say it's a drag only set up. they develop cracks and always begin to weep
