Missing upper Chain Guard

Hey, so I was washing my Brutie and while degreasing an unusual amount of chain grease off my swing arm I thought, "Man, they should really have a guard to cover this!" Wait a minute...there WAS a guard to cover this!

I know it was there before because a previous thread about it being a touch to short had me checking it out not long ago.
What a

Not sure if it worked its way off (did hear an metalic ping the other day riding, thought it was a rock off the rad guard) or if someone filched it while parked at work (seems unlikely due to low demand in area).

Sucks either way, but begins my slide into aftermarket poverty with a Design Corse carbon fire replacement (...and a few other items to make it worth shipping ). By any chance does anyone know if this comes with the hardware or will I need to source replacement fasteners?

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

You'll need the fasteners too - whichever of there that are missing.

Common problem, make sure the new one is securely fastened, I used serrated washers and loctite on the rear fastener.

Was definitely thinking loctite. Thanks for the info on the fasteners, looked like only the top and front missing bolts, but thre must have been a third I missed, will have to look again.

Me thinks "common problems" should be "manufacturer mitigated" after a few years, ha. Oh well, I love my brut with all it's quirks.

I prefer manufacturer remigration.

The upper chain guard is held in place by one bolt.
That is number 24 in the picture above.

I remember someone losing a very nice lower carbon cover.

Yeah, looks like two rubber plugs (for vibration?), one pin to hold the front steady, and the top bolt to hold it on.

Wondering if I should just thread the swing arm hole and put a second bolt in instead of the front pin.

Yes indeed Andrew.
This one was jettisoned at Little Tally then run over by our man Randy.
