Clutch cover 11340-MEM-671 $144.33 Partzilla

Some have painted the clutch cover. Black or paint to match tank and tins.
Someone used chrome finger nail polish to touch up some part..

Sometimes when a cylinder has a no spark situation the A/F can burn in the exhaust pipe.
Exhaust pipes with a cross-over provides the fire from the good cylinder.

Other possibility was from the bath. Steam...

Thanks! Yeah, I'm guessing it was from the bath, and somehow got some moisture in there. I hadn't saw anyone else post about any issues with this, in the past, so I figured I'd share. I was under the impression that it was sealed well enough, that no water would've been able to seep in there and cause the issue.

Yes a few have had issues.
I Googled vtxoa: clutch cover bubble

The first response> https://www.vtxoa.com/forums/7-vtx-1...-bubbling.html

Another thread, this post> https://www.vtxoa.com/forums/7-vtx-1...ml#post2784909

Other 1300 plasti-covers have suffered from bubbles also with no heat involved.

No worries! Are they metal on the 1800's? Would've been nice for Honda to make them something other than plastic.
