Chain guide.

94 to 06 style chain guide, but without the alloy outer. Superior to the later version.

Stock part on the 450 Rally

Nice closeup, if you took a step back I 'd use my binoculars to see the part you're talking about...

why would you need one of those? what's the function?

Keeping stuff out so it won't break/snap off the sprocket.

Dual sport and dirt bike chains have a good amount of slack in them. The guide makes sure the chain stays on the sprocket.

Thank you!

Keeps your body parts out of the dangerous nip point between chain and sprocket.

No bike will pass scrutineering without one.
