Wink KTM 950 chain guard extention

Made up this extention to stop the oil throw. Tried it today and hey, no more oil burnt onto the LH muffler .

Cause it doesn't fit in "Big Mean and Nasty" Maybe a "Large, Nice & Clean" forum ?

Uh, sir, that really needs some mud on it.

I love those simple but very handy bike mods. Makes you feel like making the manuf a good suggestion if they listened.

Hey guys, look at his locale! I suspect the bike is so shiny clean, as most likely rides in periscope up mode 98% of the time.

One of the VFR list guys made a fiberglass surround for the rear sprocket and chain, said he was getting 50% longer chain life. Though I doubt it would workd for dirt riding.

hey Zeph, nice work - what kind of material did you use for that? Also I see your chain oiler - is that a Scot or a Hawke? Can you post a few pics of how you set that up?

How did I fit that oiler?

Picture shows attachment point with snap ties. It's a Scot Oiler. Used the spare vacumm pipe off the base of the front carb. All pretty straight forward.
Question: Am I only the guy who cleans his bike? Yesterday ridding for fun in the pissing rain and on back dirt roads at up to 110 ks/hr - OK!! So lets not jump to the conclusion clean bike equals coffee bar cruiser.
Last week we were up to our boot tops in a lovely mud soup, taking an hour to drag, slip and slide our way up 5 kms of completely rooted track thanks to f 'ing 4-wheel drives and that's why I have a WR250. The 950's for all the dirt roads and trails and as my normal everday bike. There, I feel much better.
Oh yea, the extention was made from a piece of perspex I had. It's the shape that's important. Steel or alloy would do the same job.

Hi zeph!

I installed my scotoiler under the seat,in the toolcompartment!

It ceeps clean overthere, and is not in the way!

Works now already for 10000km perfectly,

I am verry pleased with it!!!

Hi Daan.

Under the seat is a smart location. I had already filled that up with rain pants and tool kit, so no room for oiler. I've used Scot oilers on all my chain bikes, except the small dirt bikes,and they make life real easy.

Hi,

I installed the scottoiler on the headlight-holder.

After installing the Mudguard "OBS" from MAMF the refiling is not so easy anymore.
