I found this on eBay. If somebody has one please post a review. Not bad for $24.00. I just purchased the JNS Case Saver and couldn't be happier.

I need the case cover shown in pic, but the guy is also selling a case saver, which is also pictured. So how do you buy the
Alu case cover? (covers left side stator cover)

Looks like when you order you get the Case saver ... different item.
Any ideas?

He's not selling the stator cover guard. He just happened to have one on the bike when he took the pics of the case saver. You can get those stator and clutch cover guards from Procycle and this place: http://motorcycleproducts.org/Engine_Gu ... R650SE.htm

Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered one and will let you know what I think when it gets here.

Well I guess you get what you pay for. Bolted this on today. It's too thin and covers about 1/3 of the chain.

You could just space it off the case.
Centre it to the middle of the chain.
Probably 1/4 inch would do it.
Would allow the mud to escape.

My b&b saver is spaced off the case.

+1 ^^^ Steel casesavers are even thinner. They all need to be centered on the rollers of the chain so they can feed off the chain without damage. A casesaver that is too wide to center on the chain rollers only is no good. Like using an aluminum case saver (normally a lot wider/thicker than steel) designed for a 525 chain on a 520 chain conversion. There is a far greater chance of damage if the side plates of the chain are what contacts the casesaver instead of the rollers.

Yup, you have to put a spacer behind it. I have very high tech spacers, if I recall right they are 7/16 stainless nuts, sets it right in the middle of the chain.

The lowest of high tech is way better than no tech. :2_thumbsup: To really "trick it out" consider using stainless nuts.... :s_wink
