Last spring I got this beautiful Superior Chain Enclosure from the King of Kings: Dean Micetich, and I've been a bit afraid ever since. Afraid of the idea that I'll have to mount it to my bike one day.
Now I've heard quite a lot of stories about these covers being close to impossible to mount, which is a bit weird since I don't even know of that many people even seeing one in real life - much less mounting and running one on their bike. However, the rumors should all prove to be perfectly true.
The trick is to take exactly everything apart, fender mount, kick stand, original chain cover (obviously) even the chain needs to have the master link removed to do this. Then you have to remove the brake drum from the wheel hub, get the brake shield out and remove the brake leveler, then re-mount it through the outer cover, so the brake leveler goes through it. Then you bolt that part up to the frame and lower oil tank bracket. The rear kickstand, fender and luggage rack mounts along with the rear crash bar will have to be removed to do this. To tighten the front bolt with the little spring (og chain cover bolt that goes in the oil tank's lower bracket) you have to run the wrench from the inside of the oil tank, out through the little triangular hole at the bottom, before I came to think of that I was close to giving up. Then you place the drum over the brake shoes, mount the chain around the sprocket and put the master link back in, forget about running an o-ring chain - it's simply too wide.
After that it's ready for the inner cover and this is when things get complicated. But there is a way to fit it in there without removing the fender and transmission plate, but you will need a lot of patience. And after sticking the inner cover in there and lining up the mounting holes you're almost there.
The last thing you have to do is taking the air out of the tire and remove the crash bar and kickstand on the right side of the bike to make room for the tire to be bolted back up to the drum. This took right above 3 hours to complete, but then I already had massaged the inner and outer cover to make sure they had a good fit before trying to mount everything to the bike.
Now the only thing that remains is to see if the chain enclosure will increase chain life with 100% as stated in the ad...
