Counter-shaft cover crashed, necessary?

'03 SV1000N, drive chain breaks, halves clutch push-rod, crumples chain-guard, and shatters counter-shaft cover.

Is counter-shaft cover a functionally necessary part?
Or, is it OK to only replace only the clutch rod and 'float' slave cylinder on its two mounting screws?

Sold my SV to fellow few years ago. Lost a bike & gained a friend. He doesn't pamper it and crashes some. Engine sounds like it did when she was mine.

Doesn't the speed sensor mount to that cover? If so, how do you plan to mount it without the cover?

Replace the cover. No two ways about that....

The clutch slave cylinder will never "float", it will be out of alignment all the time....in the end, you will end up on your butt because of a missed gear, and the damage to your whole drive train because of poor clutch control will be pretty expensive...

One owner..... 300,000kms and counting... yes, that much..........

Thank you, fellows.
Didn't look like a good option, but did not try fitting (broken clutch rod). Not my bike/money.
Yes: no cover leaves the speed sensor homeless.

SV-Portal community looks different, see familiar topics and members.
Best wishes.

I might still have my old cover. It's got a small crack in it but it's still usable.
