............. I remember using a piece of plastic cut from a kitchen cutting board to protect the swingarm. Come to think of it, that piece of plastic is still there doing sterling service. I drilled and tapped a couple of 6mm holes in the top swingarm gusset to hold it there. Wow David, Cool, I wa...

Re: chain block

.....if you or rob need some give me a hoy. Thanks Matt, I may need to take you up on that when the wood wears out ! Would you know why the standard guide goes right around the pivot shaft - is it needed to protect something near the sprocket, or do you think it's just top and bottom of the swingar...

Hey if I'd a had a bit of nylon lying around - I'd have made it out of nylon ! Anyway, I was out for a few hours on the weekend, and it worked fine, and remember that this prototype was only pine, imagine if I'd carved it out of ironbark ?! Hmmm now that set's me thinking, I might even have an old l...

Well thanks again Rob. I've had a go at making something myself. And without one to copy, I just made a guide for the top of the swing arm. I know the proper ones also go underneath, but I think the top is the main place where the chain rubs. It also saved me from having to completely remove the swi...

Thanks for that info Rob, Now that I can describe it a bit better, a dealer has just advised me that they cost around AUD$50. Which was a bit more than I was expecting ! Perhaps I could make one out of wood ? But I don't know how hot it'd get ? and there's some of it missing on my broken one so not ...

TY Chain Guide ?

My mid 80's TY350 has some sort of wooden looking chain guide or protector, just behind the front sprocket. I don't know what it is called - but it's broken.

Can anyone tell me what it's for ?
Is it critical, so should I replace it ? And if so, what it's called !

Thanks

Thanks, yes I finally got one through the dealer. It took weeks due to some sort of delay from Japan !
I've searched far and wide on the net while I was waiting, about the only place I found seems to be this UK ebayer:
