Chain Guard

So, I put my factory chain guard on with my extensions in place and all, and the tire wore through part of it from the the edge of the tire. anyone else have a problem like this or a solution?

I took my cain guard off a long time ago, but with the length of chain i have now i might order another.

yeah, Im running it with out. I also happen to just bolt a plate with my school parking permit there and the bolts arent long enough for both, but I was trying to figure out some way to run the guard without the tire eating it.

I really dont know either. Thats why I was curious if maybe I had a problem that I was unaware of. Or maybe Im missing a spacer or something. I was thinking that might actually be the problem. When I tighten down the rear axle nut, it goes past the holes for the cotter to the point where the cotter pin isnt between the spaces of the castle nut, its just in front of the nut.

U gotta put a grinder on the spaces in the nut to make them deeper then use a hammer to beat the wrench down to keep ur in the nut so u can slip the pin thru it

no, my problem is reverse of what youre thinking. the nut keeps going past the holes for the pin. like, the castle part of the nut goes past it. the cotter pin goes in and all with the nut on tight. Its like the nut keeps pulling the extensions closer like its pinching the back end

Tech here requires a chain guard. If you run extensions and the stock chain guard you will have to trim a little corner away (or the tire will do it for you). Tech here wanted a chain guard that went 1" past the axle (nice of them to not provide ANY information on what the rules are in advance) so I just made a new one out of some scrap sheet metal over the winter ... the shape is not very complicated, so it's pretty easy to make one.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

i just mark where the tire was hittin the chain guard and took some dikes and cut a lil piece out so the tire would clear the chain guard and wouldnt rub. now when people notice it they think i bought it that way, guess i did a good job on the cut
