Anyone interested in a subframe guard (see my pics above)? I made several for my friends and I, and I have one left over. They fit snug, and I attached mine with zip-ties and silicone.

Just buy some L shaped angle iron from ANY hardware store and a set of JB weld.
be done with it.
No zip ties needed.
I'll make a kit and sell it to you for an easy payment 19.99. PM me:busted:

on my 08 i don't think it's possible for the chain to hit the frame. there are no chew marks as of yet!
its 1.2-1.5" away from the chain.

I know from experience with roadrace bikes that you never trust the swingarm/axle block marks.
The chain has been rubbing slightly on my subframe and the bike has done less than 500km.
My first thought is that I will try to determine that my two sprockets are actually actually aligned perfectly.
I'll try to clamp a straight edge to the rear sprocket (with chain removed) that extends as far up to the countershaft sprocket as possible.
Then I guess it will be a case of determining how much "allowance" I give a particular axle block in order to make the chain run true.
Your thoughts? .... Too pedantic for a dirt bike?
