Chain Guard Flap or Extension
Dual Sport Chain Guard Flap by HorseRider650
The Honda XR650L dual sport motorcycle was not designed to ever stay clean and polished like a Harley or other street bike. It was made to get dirty. However, one day after routine maintenance on the chain I decided to take the bike for a test ride. My wife asked me if she could go along. So off we went. Upon our return and much to my fear and dismay, there was grease on the back of her new white riding jacket. So here is a cheap mod you can do to the chain guard to keep chain lube at bay.

You just need a couple stainless steal screws and nuts or pop rivets. I found a piece of plastic from the air intake of a 1983 Buick Century to make the chain guard extension.

This homemade chain guard extension cut down on chain grease splatter tremendously.
