    Congrats on the purchase, great bike. I seriously considered a chain guide, especially when I went up to a 52t ironman. Hasn't been an issue, been through a few rocks:evil

    The plastic aftermarket one on my KTM gets gouged accasionally. The way I look at it, if it hits something, chances are the sprocket or chain would've taken the hit instead?

    I usually build chain guides as tensioner/guides up close to the swing arm pivot and make them pivot at the attach point. Not too vulnerable.

    Dang, almost a year since the last post.

    Looking for some feedback on swingarm length:deal

    For the rat ninja builders that have extended the stocker or used a different swingarm.

    How much to lengthen?

    John let me jack your thread real quick. A guy I was riding with last weekend crashed his 2013 650. If you or anyone else has any spare parts let me know.
