The engine and Gearbox share the same oil sump. Unit Construction.
I'm not so sure what is available for a replacement rear fender. Hopefully some of the Adventurer guys will give you some suggestions.
I think there are some universal plastic dirt bike fenders that can be utilized, but I don't know specifics about that.
If it's the alternator bolt that holds the impeller onto the alternator, that noise will usually go away at idle if you turn on the high beam.
Or if you reach about 2500 to 3000 rpm's.
There is another bolt in the alternator drive that causes similar problem it bolts the other impeller to the drive mechanism in the engine.
That one is a little more difficult to remedy, but not too bad from accounts I've read here.
