I would like to either replace or mod the stock 500R chain guard. I would like to have an extremely minimal chainguard. I don't want to remove it all together... I don't want oil flipping up on my bike and/or me...

Anyone have pics of modding theirs, or aftermarket ones?

The chain guard on this bike , and really all bikes dosn't really guard the chain. That is prevent somthing getting caught by the chain. The bottom run is where the danger reallyis, and look at it , open. On my race bike I had a strong alumunium piece bolted in front of the rear sprocket to prevent parts of me from getting intangled in the spinning chain in a crash. Good Idea for all racers.

I made an aluminim chain guard. I'll attach a pic
very nice, looks sharp.

i thought of taking mine off all-together for looks, but with the left hand side muffler in the way, doesnt make any difference really.

Run an o-ring chain. No lube required. Just use a little chain wax to keep the side plates from rusting.

I tossed my chain guard and ground the brackets off the swingarm. But then, I'm not riding your average EX500.

I made a simple aluminum chainguard using 1"x1/8" flat stock. It keeps the oil from flinging onto the side of the bike better than the stock guard did.
