Nahh, you don't need to take the cover off just to replace the gask.. HOLY SHEISSE, that sucks man. How did you manage that? I guess it could have been worse; balancers or something. These are good bikes, so don't let that get you down. Good luck!

that looks like the older style linkage. the newer one has a thicker body than the threaded ends if I recall correctly

DAMN! Welp, you're nearly halfway there. Glad you found the problem and that it's reparable (even if it is a PITA)

BTW, if that threaded rod is expensive to order as a Kawi part, it would be approximately dirt cheap to make or buy as a threaded rod.
