Sprocket cover? Anyone interested 🤔

Recommended Posts

I am contemplating with the idea of getting rid of the plastic cover for the sprocket and getting a stainless cover laser cut to mount on the existing bolts? Might need to be bend to clear things but that's not a problem.

Aim to have it done in 2.0mm thick stainless and have maybe a logo laser cut or just open holes. No machining to keep cost down and with PPC finish in black. 

I've attached a photo for reference only. 

Would like to know if this is a good idea and if people find this useful for the t7 especially for the ones that use it off road and would like to clean that part of the engine on the quick. 

Attached is a rough guide of what I intend to do but without fancy radiuses on the edges. 

Look forward to some feedback. 

Thank you,

Aleks

Thank you for your feedback... the picture would be reference only as a guide and the front can be made differently.. I would have thought that people riding off road and on road don't have shoe laces but then I'm not an expert I wear sidi race goretex boots or adventure boots. 

Most motorcycle riding boots that have laces have a velcro for the laces to be covered with... At least that's what I'm seeing online.

I'm in. Great idea and one thing I was looking for to aid cleaning after mud build up.

 

Only for people who off road and don't have shoe laces...

Thanks for the feedback.. I'll get the cover off next week and start a cad design, see where we end up with the logo side of things and how it will look in cad before cutting.

This looks pretty rad.

 

Side track: personally I would love to see a quick release (turn-click-lock) style for front sprocket cover.

 

I always hate (and lazy) to take so many bolts off to clear/change the chain. Knowing myself, I WILL strip one of those bolts as usually one or two (doze) beers are involved when I do my own maintenance.🤣

There might be some options out there but I haven't seen them yet for a quick release.. If you have anything in mind please share with us... I usually f... ck the bolts up when I work on the bike but then have access to 10k bolts nuts and all sorts at work and replace them on the quick with stainless ones 🤣🤣

You are not the only one trust me.

…shoe lace ?  What’s a shoe lace?

That is something that should NOT be part of motorcycle footwear.

Well you better be more careful than to have your shoe laces dangling that long, geez!

Definitely. Never mind the sprocket (would likely just rip off barely giving your foot a tug) 

The worst thing with shoe laces is coming to a stop and potentially hooking a loop on your footpeg as you put a foot down leading to the most embarrassing traffic light drop ever
