I assume your referring to the round right side aluminum swing arm pivot cover with the radial ball mill dimples in the face.
If so I haven't thought of offering that part, as your the first one that asked about it, and I had posted up about it in a post I did about it and some other mods I had done to my bike, and I made it because the stock plastic cover looked like crap.
To install the swing arm pivot cover, the center of the swing arm pivot shaft must be drilled and tapped for a 10/24 thread, as the center that's already in the end of the shaft is the perfect diameter for the tap drill for a 10/24 thread. I probably could have also drilled and tapped the swing arm pivot shaft for an M5 thread.
So I can make the cap to accept either a 10/25 or M5 screw which have almost the same diameter tap drill size, depending out what drill and tap a person may already have. A 10/24 thread uses a #25 tap drill (.1495 dia.), and an M5 x .8 thread uses a #19 tap drill (.166 dia).
The shaft is easily drilled and tapped, and I drilled mine on the bike with an electric hand drill, and then tapped it by hand, and it came out great, as I have a lot of experience free drilling holes straight into things like this and then tapping them by hand.
Let me work up a price on the cover and I'll send you a PM with the price. I make similar round parts like this for other bikes and I make them up as an order comes in, which is easy or me to do as I design and make everything I sell in house.
