    The bad news: there are no more of them.

    The good news: I have all of Robb's original drawings, copies of which I've sent to Tim Haley. He's drawing the chainguard in CAD for me (along with some other stuff I sent him) and I'll be having a batch laser-cut & up for sale in the near future.

    Just don't hold your breath. The deadline I've given myself is nothing more specific than "sometime this year."

      Getting rid of the stock chain guard was one of the reasons I bought the wheel hugger. Much nicer looking...

        I have one of Robb's chain guards on my '89. I like it, but it barely qualifies for the name "chain guard".

        Now, for the combined chain guard/hugger in CF, I have a question. Is that wide enough to cover the 180/55/17 on a 5.5x17 VFR rear rim? Or does it really only work for the stock size rear wheel?

          doug are you going to have some made up without the holes for the zipties on the top??? those are for rear brake lines that are not throu the swing arm. i have one and broke one of the mounting tabs off wile i was trying to polish it. and the thought crossed my mind to just make one and not put those holes on the top. and run the brake line throu the arm. but then do you really need one? i like the way they look on the bike and your foot is really close so i do.

          also if you need the cad drawing done up faster, that would only take me like 30 minutes at the most.

            Pretty sure it should... the hugger comes with a few shims and one of the bolt holes you need to drill for your application.

              1) That's exactly what I plan on doing. With the right chain lube (for this season, I'm thinking I'll go with that new DuPont spray that people seem to like), who the hell needs a chainguard? As far as I'm concerned, mine just keeps my brakeline out of the chain.

              2) PM me your address. I may take you up on that! Would you mind doing up a few others for me?

                There was a small piece of metal on the bottom of my swingarm near the shock mount that was supposed to hold something. I don't know what was supposed to go there since it was gone when I got the bike but I am assuming it was for some type of vent hose. Anyway, I took it off and bolted it on the swingarm where the chain guard was supposed to bolt and clipped the brake line in it. It worked perfect, and does not look like some home made cob job.

                  hu?? i just polished my swingarm out and theres nothing on the bottom side of the swing arm in that area. could you snap a pic i would like to see what your talking about?

                  maybe your talking about the mounting holes for the chain slider???
                  it has two on the top side and two on the bottom side. those are just little embossed cyrcles.

                  i would like to find replacment chain sliders for the swing arm anyone know where i can get one of those with out going to honda and spending way to much money.

                    After checking the online parts diagrams, it appears to be the "clip" that bolts to the swingarm for the rear shock drain tube. It bolted to the swingarm directly below the shock, on the front part of the swingarm cross section. I'll get a picture of the part and post it.

                      Here are a couple pics of the part:



                      After looking again, it actually bolted to the top of the swingarm cross section, directly below the shock.

                        Hey Bill-ns what is your hugger from. It looks real cool and would finish my back end off just right.
