Not necessarily, depending on the crash of course. That would be like saying that the skid plates on the woodcrafts are one and done. I don't like the skid plate design on the woodcrafts because they are pretty small and I've never seen a crash where the slider was the only part that hit the pavement, and replacing the skid plate requires removal of the cover.


The things that I like about the gb covers:

The actual engine isn't riding on the pavement.

To replace a cover, there is no need to drain the oil, no need for a new gasket and you can replace it in about 3 minutes if needed.

The full set with the clutch cover is actually cheaper than the woodcrafts that don't have a clutch cover. (if you order them from Riders Discount).

I'd still call Riders Discount, as they may be cheaper than buying off that ebay link, even with shipping.

Two of my riders who crashed on em (one is one of my racers) the screws were so jacked up and it was in fact one and done.

My bike has been down like 7 times on the WC and ignition cover is still great. At a racing level that's the difference from finishing a weekend out vs going home or chasing your tail and not passing for re tech after the initial crash.

Re: GB Racing engine case covers

I believe Chief is referring to me as one of those riders. I had a minor lowside during a CCS race and to my surprise the GB Racing right side cover ground down stripping one of the bolts and causing a leak. Not only did Chief have the Woodcraft cover on hand but, he installed it for me and gave me a killer deal on it. I was able to get out there for my next race, I got out late so I started from Pit Lane and still came in 4th thanks to Chief. I've had a couple of low sides since and no issues at all with the Woodcraft cover.

Re: GB Racing engine case covers

Personally I like NRC case covers. They are tough as hell
I had them on my 2000 R6. They had been crashed on both sides prior to me owning the bike and I personally crashed the bike 7-9 times over the course of ownership and they never had to be replaced. I have NRC on one of my engines now and Woodcraft on the other. The NRC's definitely hold up better.

Re: GB Racing engine case covers

GB's are legit if you don't want to go through the hassel of removing the stock covers. Fit perfect.
