Never had to open his bike up? I call that a win.

Damocles, the clutch cover does hold the water pump, oil filter and also the sight glass for the oil level. Though, the oil level does completely disappear in the sight glass with the bike only leaning on the kickstand. Other the the dribble out of the oil filter, it's likely the engine would not dump all of it's oil out with that side cover removed.

They're not like some bikes that have an independent clutch cover.
