Lead to this.....


I got together with a bunch of friends and we had a 1.1 mile road course layed out on the ice. Homemade tires were hooking up real good, on the 6th lap I came out of the last turn in 3rd, twisted the throttle and BAM!

I guess I need to decide what to do with the bike now. Can't wait to see what this is gonna cost.
Mate!!!! FKN SPEWIN!!!!

I just want to say thank you for posting that! That must be devistating. Like me, you have probably looked at case savers and thought "I'll have to get one of them one day" Then BANG!!! I can imagine the violent thoughts that went through your mind as you stared at that gaping hole.

I just ordered my Billet case saver.......

Just an update folks. I finally had a chance to sort through my junk mail, and a message from Paul at HDB had been sitting in there for two days, so he had gotten back to me right away, and is shipping the replacement post haste.

Marks for customer service...

Mine has 3844 miles...

Funny thing is I ordered new chain and sprockets last week.


I think it's stamped CZ also.

Be interesting to see if the factory put the same POS chain on the TE630. I have seen multiple reports now of very early chain failures with the stock CZ unit. Anyone out there still on the original chain... consider yourself warned.

Yup,,, I knew I was on borrowed time. Especially with racing the bike and the high stress of ice riding.

Hmm, looks like I have two stock chains to weld into spiders or some other yard art............

I'm looking to make my own solution that, like many other types of case savers, incorporates the upper chain roller mount. I don't think the mount points on the case will necessarily hold in a chain break situation. On the other hand broken mount points are still better than a fragged clutch actuator housing.

I think it's about $300, but to put that in perspective, I broke my stock cable, so I had to buy a new one and a spare and that was like 150. $300 "fixes" the issue.

Sorry you guys had trouble.








I will sacrifice the small plastic chain cover in order to protect the case.





Just a couple of thoughts.


I replace stock chains on all bikes at first oil change.

I replace good chains around 2,000 - 3,000 miles.

Call it silly, I've never had a chain related failure. I carry extra master links primarily for other people.

Again, sorry you guys had the problem.

Since we're talking chains, I just replaced the inner plastic guide on the bottom chain guide @ 5k miles.

Then I did a 1,200 mile trip to Cabo, and the thing looks just as worn our as before. putting a few gouges in the Aluminium

How often do you guys change that? Or do you leave it kinda worn away at front?

I'm on #3 of the rear guide plastic insert.

Hey Debandi - have you tried that casesaver with a 16T sprocket? Wondering about clearances.

No sir. I'm running a 15t. On #3 on the front sprocket.

It's a very tight fit with the 15t.
