That doesn't mean a thing. You really think 2 little 6 mm bolts that guard is held on with is going to hold a bunched up chain under power back?

No garentees but, sure rather have it than not to take the blow instead on the case...

only thing a case guard helps against is a loose link slapping the case which causes a crack.... not a wadded up ball of chain. Which (knock on wood), hopefully it doesn't happen to me.

to the OP, your buddy has two options;

1. he ponies up the prolly close to 3-4 large to fix his bike (new case, bearings, seals) or;

2. he parts the bike and "hopefully" recuperates some of his costs in the bike (which never works, too many low ballers out there), or;

3. he pulls the ultimate cheap option and JB welds the case hoping it doesn't blow cause it's lost oil and throw a rod thru the case 20 miles into a bush,

good luck my friend.
