Does anyone have information about aftermarket frame braces for the bulkhead area of my Rev? The bulkhead is buckled by the recoil. I've seen the braces on the internet or in magazine. I believe they cover the whole side by the recoil and under the chain case. Can anyone help with where I can them? this is the second big hit on r.s. there is not much left to work with i had the bulkhead welded once and replaced the nun now everything is bent or broken again the lower mounts for a arms are torn out as well help! all ideas welcome.

What are you doing to cause the damage?

When you replaced the nun - did you replace it with the 440 nun and add the additional 440 braces including the one that runs on the outside of the bulkhead next to the recoil.

Also, I don't think it would be too hard to make some of your own braces for your trouble areas. For example, I think a bolt-in brace that goes from the nun to the back of the bulk head/front of the tunnel running above the crankshaft just behind the primary clutch shaft would help to strengthen things up.

I didn't like what was available, so I fabricated my own bulkhead brace for that very spot behind the muffler. I used 2 pieces of 1/4" 6061 aluminum plate as raw material for the braces. There's a larger section of plate on the outside of the bulkhead and a smaller one on the inside.

The thin stock "brace" stays in place, and the two custom plates bolt together through the right side of the bulkhead, effectively forming a "sandwich". The result? An extremely rigid right side bulkhead assembly that will not bend.
