The gentelman at xrs only said the chain guide they make for the XR650L goes on the outside of the bracket on the XR...........if I did that.....it made the chain angle way to much so I bolted it on just like the stock was before i removed it. Does anyone know the correct postion? Im way to much of a newbie at this to know!

The guide that goes in front of the rear sprocket?
It goes in between the sides of the nylon holder.

It bolts to the inside of the swingarm; I 've got one on mine. Others have had good luck but I've found the people at XR's Only totally worthless.

A little chilly right now; guess we're actually going to have a winter this year. I'm stoved up from a 70+ mph endo last weekend but wishing I could be riding. I used to live in Brookhaven, MS back in the early '60s and across the river from Natchez in the early '70s. Used to have a blast hanging out at the parks along the Natchez Trace.
