We have made this guard strong and light by using 7075
Aluminum. The window through the center of the part takes weight off and does
not trap mud, as other designs do! Of course it protects the Clutch slave
cylinder from debris that may be thrown its way by the chain. This Slave
cylinder needs protection as repeated pounding by the chain can damage it and
brake fluid l
eakage here,means failure.
* more clearance for 1 tooth larger front sprocket
* Works with Rekluse adjustable sender.
* More clearance, for the Shift Lever. Or, a Higher Position, if desired.
* Mud and debris build up on the underside here causing missed shifts ... .
* Designed / Wall thickness, between the Sprocket and Hydraulic sender- protects, CLEARANCE matters,larger front sprocket, still FUNCTIONAL.
* NO OTHER GUARD DOES ALL THIS !
And, its not an OVERWEIGHT Brick, on your High tech MACHINE.
The "Clog and Bog"
The stock chain guide "Clogs" with mud in wet
conditions . This translates into increased drag, Bogging down the engine and wearing the chain / sprockets.
The bogging is more noticeable with 2 stroke engines.
Note: Stock chain guard is
modified as shown below. To the right of the blade is used, as the "Bottom out rubbing block", for the chain.
