'nother "New Guy" to this forum Empty chainguard

deadly,
Dude, you have a sharp eye! Long story, but it is fabbed (barely) from XR650L chainguard ($40 from Dennis Kirk, IIRC) and 5" length of 1/8" aluminum angle (bulk stock from Home Despot); fastened with pipe clamp (about 3") over rubber adhesive tape with the (red cover still adhered). Only fabbing was grinding (only fabbing tool I have) the alum stock through at the angle for about 1/8" through slot to attach clamp.

You can read about it here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3354022&postcount=126

Lots of folks have commented that the plastic guard rubs the tire - worrying about 'friction loss' of power ?!
Beauty of the pig; I could be dragging my brake pads and not notice. As for wearing away the fender guard, hasn't happened and I consider it a 'wearing surface' anyway. BTW, the nuts and bolts that came to mount the fender on the XRL were good to mount on my setup as I recall.

Needed it for plating in Muddyland and guys were saying you only need it to get the tags but it hasn't been a problem so it's still on there.
Hope this helps.

XRR, I just noticed the MFI stickers. I used to go by there often. I have some high school friends that used to run the joint working there. Where in MD are you? That one pic on the sand road looks like the Pine Barrens 500. Did you go up there this year?

The forum is still in its infancy...In fact it just a month old. It's hard spreading the word but so far with an exception of a few personal invites its been by word of mouth.

Glad you made it.

I guess I wont's have to ask - "Have you taken it off any sweet jumps"?
