    Chainguard with 190

    What are you guys with zx10 wheels and 190 rears doing with your chain guards. I have one of the Ted (I think) aluminum chain guards and I'm not surprised that it won't fit with this tire. Thinking about just using some spacers to move it out a bit and cut a bit away form the top if there is some spring clearance issues. Just curious what anyone else is doing......


    Thanks

    I only had to make a bit of room at the top of the chainguard where it interfered. 15 seconds with a dremmel. Done.

    To clarify:
    I took the little nibble out where the outside edge of the tire would rub the inner lip of the cg.

    i had a Teds chainguard running a 190 on a ZX 14 wheel w/o a clearance issue, I did however have it break off due to me procrastinating on attaching the rear brace.

    man that thing looks so cool; but SO wimpy....a chain breaking would cut right thru that & possibly into your leg/hip/cases...

    I know, I know, today's 530 chains are much more durable. Back in the day I saw several of the 630 size chains break on high-hp Kaw's (mostly drag-bikes), & the results were much more $$$$ expensive (broken cases.)

    I was chasing my riding partner on a high-hp Z1b 900 (1024cc AMA kitted monster), & his broke on a hard 2nd to 3rd shift, & it went flying over my shoulder.....shew! I'll never forget what looked like a snake flying at me at extreme speed.....

    I wasn't knocking yours. I was just stating the risk(ish) of not having one at all....

    Why would the lightest ZRX on the planet have something as heavy as a stainless chain guard? In the towing industry, while winching 100,00 lb. trucks out of 4 feet of mud with 300 ft. of 3/4 inch cable stretched to the breaking point, all that is necessary to stop the cables momentum is to simply place a red shop rag on the cable about 100 ft. out and when the cable breaks the rag will cause it to drop to the ground and stop it from coming back and hitting you or the truck. I'm sure that cable has considerably more stored energy than that 3 ft. of chain.

    Mines 30 percent thicker and weighs approx. 6 ounces total... meaning his is probably 4 or 5 ounces... Im sure the extra 2 or 3 ounces over the stock set up is not gonna off set anything in the grand scheme of things.

    Unless he doesnt ride until 4 hours after eating... his lunch affects the bikes weight more...lol
