Upper chain gaurd came loose - scratched up wheel

I was going down a ramp off a freeway and heard an awful sound.

The front of the upper chain guard had come off, but instead of simply breaking at the screw and flying off, it rotated around and scratched up the inside of my rim (on the lip and the spokes especially)

Besides replacing the upper chain guard (I will see what CAG has in carbon fiber, I suppose) I need to get the wheel repainted. Anyone with experience repainting their wheels? I need to find someone in Southern California that will do a good job.

Ideally, I just want it to look as good as it did before, but I don't know if painting the wheel requires special expertise. I want to match original.

Any ideas or suggestions on how I go about this? The only thing I know to do is to go to the local dealer and ask if they know anyone.

I am trying very hard not to be overly upset about this. It's only a bike... it can be fixed...

Thanks.

Moto Forza has a bunch in stock.

Mine flew off a month ago on Palomar, never even noticed until I got home.

If you've got the time, hit me up as this is what I do for living and will be happy to help out. Depending on the damage, may even be able to repair it while on the bike. If not, I have a client in Oceanside that will do it.

This happened to me too...

2011 1090RR w/59miles...

MV sent me a new rear wheel & chain guard and all the fixins..

MV has an updated guard that attaches with hardware at both points rather than a plastic locating pin in front and a fastener on top of the swingarm.

Nice! Unfortunately, not an option for me with a 6 year old bike. Looking at it more, the hole for the pin is pretty deep - I am thinking I may try to rig up my new one so that the locating pin is longer. We'll see.

I've drilled the little pin out from the guard and then put a stainless steel screw and a rubber well nut in it's place for other guys bikes, on my bike I installed ally rivnuts on both chain guards and rear wheel hugger.

I also lost mine (no scratches though) and took Dons' advice with drilling the front pin and, though I used a wellnut instead of rivnuts, bolting the new cf piece. Rock solid and piece of mind. Should have been done from the shop

Thanks for the idea and images. I am definitely doing something like this.
