1987 CR500 water pump/inner clutch cover help!!!!

I have a customer and his 87 CR500 has a ruined water pump/inner clutch cover.
Magnesium hates old radiator fluid :o

Since the inner clutch covers before 1994 are discontinued what can you do?
Buy a 2001 inner clutch cover, get a new radiator hose, and shim your rear brake lever out a bit to clear the new cover.
Everything else bolts up.
Now get out there and destroy some 4 strokes :lol:

Or, check out this cool chart researched and made available by Roost... Then go out and destroy some 4 strokes :lol:
