Front Sprocket Cover

Am I the only one who has huge issues getting this piece of plastic back on? Doing my first ever work on the SV changing the chain and sprockets. I made it through everything but I can't get this stupid cover back on. Am I missing something obvious here?

Taking the knuckle from the shift rod makes it a lot easier.

Re: Front Sprocket Cover

It's a PITA. Much easier when the bike is in GP shift. You can do what Absocold to make life easier.

You COULD just leave it off in the future, but that's up to you.

Re: Front Sprocket Cover

What?! No, it's quite straightforward. The only annoying part is the little clip that holds the kickstand switch wire, which takes about 5 seconds of fiddling to locate with the bolt.

Re: Front Sprocket Cover

It's straight forward but it's a pain to get it out with the shift star usually blocking it in.

Yup, need either a 10 or 12mm socket. I usually mark it with a sharpie so its quicker to put back on.

This is the truth. All you have to do. That cover will easily come off and back on no problems.

Re: Front Sprocket Cover

I've designed this. I just haven't had enough time to double/triple check all the measurements before Nucular can make them. I'm sure this might be a little cooler than a big black cover.


I say designed. Street and Comp used to sell these things, but they quit a while back.
