chain guard extender?

I am tired cleaning off black dots from the back of my jacket after every ride. Chain lube keep flying off the chain on my back. I am not overlubing the chain, just as it says in the manual every other oil change. And the rear rim looks dirty all the time too. i want to install some kind of chain guard extender. Any ideas guys?

Either change your brand of chain lube...or stop lubing it altogether. It's a modern o-ring chain. It simply needs to be cleaned.

@silentservice703. I'm surprised you didn't tell him to put the year and model of his bike in the post or on his sig, Chuck. It's in his album but that takes two clicks to find out and get back.

Ha! When you are answering questions for several differing models and years of bikes, it gets tiresome to dig up the information for each issue. It's time consuming.

I suppose I could take the attitude that if the poster is too lazy to identify the bike in question, I don't have to expend my energy in order to figure it out.

It's selfish and inconsiderate...or maybe just flat out ignorant of what is involved in remotely diagnosing problems. Any bit of information...like whether it is a 3 or four cylinder bike helps....

It's not my nature though.
