This plastic piece protects the swingarm where the drive chain runs over and under it. A little white lithium grease around the edge of the element where it contacts the air-cleaner housing completes the job. Any and all responses welcome! Its three-ring-binder format is filled with helpful information, everything from adjusting values and chain-adjustment specs to what kind of sealants and lubes to use. Should anything be repaced during process? This just means adding spacers to the top of the fork springs so that the spring already has a load before the suspension even compresses.
