I got about 300 miles out of the original chain guard then the front attachment broke . I repaired it by soldering a steel washer around the attaching point . About 50 miles later the guard broke about 1/4" away from my repair . I made a new one of the same design out of much thicker cold rolled steel and also installed a cushioning piece of rubber at the rear mount . I Have traveled over 600 miles with the new guard with no problems and no more rattles either . .....D.J.
so cool.... I have friends in the metal fab shop where I work. The company doesn't mind if you build things there...off the clock, of course.
and pay for the metal. you can hang your stuff on the paint line & get it powdercoated too. not a big choice of colors. black-red-green. black works :lol:
Thanks guys . we do have a bead roller at work . This guard is so thick that you don't need the beads . I like the smooth look too . I can't seem to take a good picture of the all black guard . I would like to match the guard on the other side but it is a tough one to copy . It is meant to look like a muscle car side panel . The bike is a mid 60's CCM .....D.J.
Supposing I want to install. Got a new one to put on used engine. So not sure how. Do I use the a longer bolt to go through the cover and attach to the back of the chain cover under the clutch lever? Seems a bit deep and close to the chain for inevitable failure or worse get caught up in the path of the chain!
