2009 right side case on a 2012 klr650

I have a project bike, 2012 klr650 with a busted right case. I found a 2009 right case. my question is it compatible with the 2012 left side? My understanding is the 2008 bikes through 2017 have the same cases. any insight would be appreciated. thanks.

You should have no problems using the 2009 case. Please disregard this post as I thought the op was referring to the clutch cover. Sorry for any confusion.

Are you refering to the Outer covers? LH alternator & inner chain cover and RH clutch cover?

Or are you refering to the LH & RH CENTER CASES?

The center cases are supposed to be used/sold as a matched set, due to dowel pins & Line Boring of bearing & seal pockets for perfect alignment of all cross case shafts.

I am referring to the inner cases. I had read that people had used mismatched sets with no problem. just wondering what others thoughts were on the subject. thanks.

In the service manual it's written that they are machined in the assembled state and must be replaced as pair.

Maybe you can find both crankcase halves?

There is Only one way to find out just Exactly How Close of Tolerance the machining of All of the Intricately Machined surfaces of the 32 year old design on 32 year old machinery might be.

Buy it & Try it!

I've even suggested this with Broken cam bearing caps. Those only have 3 surfaces/interfaces to be concerned with.
