I also noticed that there were a few wear marks on the guard caused by my D606 tire - probably during the few times I hit around 70 mph. My guess is that the wind blew the guard back into the tire, so if this Velcro sticks, it may just solve the problem of tire wear.
I'd go with some elastic string, rather than velcro. The flap is moving up and down constantly against the swinger. I was thinking of the thinnest bungie cord you can find, 1/16" or less. The stuff they use as hold downs in toys and other packaging.
