Chain Guard screw/bucket needed

Hi all,
I just got in from washing my bike (second time in 3 years, so it needed it) and I noticed that the collar screw and 'bucket' were missing from the chain slider guard as you're looking at the top of the swingarm. I did a 600km solo ride yesterday so I'm glad it didn't cause any issues….

I'm in Vancouver, Canada - does anyone know where I could get these 2 small parts quickly? I'm going to try my 2 local dealers in the morning, but if anyone had these parts just lying around gathering dust….

It's part 8 and 9 on the 2006 950 ADV Swingarm parts fiche. (is there meant to be one on the underside of the swingarm too??)

Thanks as always,
Matthew.

You are a lucky man! That guide can get picked up by the chain and wrap around the sprocket, locking the rear end so you can do nothing but skid to a halt.

The best repair is to put a long M6 screw all the way through the swingarm and loctite a nyloc nut in place. Much more permanent than the small amount of alloy that the stock screw goes into.

I do this mod on all my KTMs EXC/SX and Adv



The cupped washer is a common part, used on EXC/SX models so small off road dealers or breakers yards should have them. Used for chain guide and to hold the shock flap in place.

Just get the new bucket and drill out top hole:



Get a long bolt that goes all the way through the swingarm, lower threads can reused and you bolt it in place or drill out bottom threads also and secure bottom side with lock nut underneath:





Having the chain slider wrap up around the front sprocket will be very scary and highly likely to cause a crash when the rear wheel locks up.

Quite sure the bolt should be M6 thread 100mm long.

EDIT: See Peanut beat me to reply.

Thanks

Thanks very much to both of you for responding - this is exactly what I need to do.

I am very lucky - I was thinking about my last ride, in a pretty remote road with rocks and drop offs all round. A seized rear would not have been a happy situation at all.
PLEASE EVERYONE CHECK THIS!

Will order parts this morning.

Thanks again DirtyADV and Peanuts!

Matthew.
