Chain guide problems!!!!

So, I am out in the middle of nowhere right now and am short on money....... That being said, I snapped my chain guide off and had it make it all the way around the sprocket and lodge against the frame.

My questions are, can I ride it without the guide without doing damage to anything else on the bike? Is it safe to ride without it on there? Anyone recommend a good replacement?

Thank you all in advance.

That sounds promising, Brian! Well, not the part about replacing tires every week...

My chain guard was ripped off my bike at 70 MPH, approx 100 or so miles from home. Talk about scaring the s**t out of you. Rode home with minimal amount of wear on the swing arm. Bought a OEM one, don't know about aftermarket ones. Good luck.

Here you go for a cheap good replacement guide. I have been using one for about 3 years now. I want to say its even better that the oem one. As for running the bike without a guide it can be done. but just fix it when you get a chance. http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...rm=chain+guide

Self tapping screws! I wish I'd thought of that yesterday! Woulda probably worked better than what I ended up using. I think I finally got it so it might just leak a little bit in one spot. The good news... I found the hammer that I thought I had lost!
Enough typing four beers in... time to head out to the garage

You cant make this shit up!

First, and let me get this out of the way, you are talking about the chain guard that mounts to the front of the swing arm, top and bottom, right?
If yes! I have a well used but still usable OEM one I'll make you one HELL of a deal on. But wait, there's more, if you act now, FREE SHIPPING. Let me know, I can't do this all day.

PM me!!!!
