Hi Chris,  I am looking for the chain-guide that is mounted at the bottom of the swing arm just in front of the rear sprocket.

Hi Chris,  I am looking for the chain-guide that is mounted at the bottom of the swing arm just in front of the rear sprocket.

OK, our SW Motech 'Chain Guard' is more of a chain guard EXTENDER, attaching pictures here, will see what OTHER chain guards are available...
This one is R905, and we carry stock... (we stock SILVER, like in pic 3...)
from your description, it is not the one you are looking for...
Pic 1 = no chain-guard-extender shown (next to pillion peg, etc)
pic 2 = chain-guard-extender[/size] shown fitted, in place.
[/size]pic 3 =
More later

Yes, I will ask them, with their new management structure, it may get done. Nice crowd, but not without their (significant) issues.
i usually don't 'talk out of school', but they (AMP) have crossed certain barriers now, and let one single customer down between 12 and 14 times, I lose count!
But I will ask them.

We are in the final stages of manufacturing a full stainless chain guard (not just an extension) and looking at a chain guide this week. Trialed the prototype this past weekend on the Canola run. Chain guards ready in the next 10 days.
