Pulled the flywheel off my P200 to check the stator position and discovered that part of the "lip" (for lack of a better word) behind the flywheel has been broken off by a previous user (I assume he wasn't using the proper tools to get his flywheel off).

Is this something I need to be concerned about?

Ugly, but nothing to worry about.

Like greasy says, not a problem. It's only there to help keep road debris from getting behind the flywheel.

If that were mine, I'd test them to see if they were loose. If so, I'd use some JB Weld to fix it.

When you say you'd test them do you mean you would test the rest of the lip to make sure there are no cracks?

I mean I'd see if they were loose or wiggly in the slightest such that they might come off on the road. If still solidly fast, I'd leave them be, or maybe go ahead and reinforce them with JBWeld anyways.

There are no rules here. Just mechanical common sense. Either way, it's not a serious issue.

i'm with jim in that i'd investigate the situation; however i'd avoid any use of JB in or around there.

if you've got something that looks suspect i'd break it off and file it down rather than try and brace it up. if that came apart you risk trashing the stator and possibly damaging the flywheel. then you're stuck at the side of the road and out of pocket for those bits.

but not to poo-poo the use of JB (lord knows i've used my fair share) i just don't think this is the application for it given the possible ramifications.

Is your timeing set to 18 degrees on your P200, if so do you mind me asking why. Is it kitted per chance.

Yes, it has a Pollini 208 kit on it.
