when it gets it dont worry it goes no where but if you want put some rtv around it and then some on the pull cord and you will be fine

I have one on my 07. To me it is something to worry about, the pull start fills with mud, wears out the seal and then your exposing your crankcase to mud and water. You can order one for an 08 from your local dealer or online at any of the oem places for cheap.

I found one on bikebandit.com for a 08 750, about 12.00 for the cover and 6.00 for the gasket.

so the 08 cover will fit over the pulley on the end of the crank without having to remove it

For all the good my pull start does I might as well cut the rope and seal it with silicone.
I thought about that....:thinking::rockn:

No you will have to remove the pulley. Atleast I did on mine, but when I got my bike the guy gave me a metal cover. I ordered the one from bikebandit for my wife's bike and it is plastic, may stick out further. I'll check tonight and let you know for sure.

I put the bolt back and I forgot to look last night to make sure the plastic cover from bikebandit fit over the pulley or not.
