990 Clutch saver (guard)

Postby sam46 » Fri May 04, 2018 11:44 am

Hey, just modding my new 990sd and trying to track down a clutch slave cylinder guard....... I've fitted one of these to every sxf and excf bike I've owned and it's saved my clutch/casing on more than one occasion.
Having flung a chain on my last SD I'm now looking to fit a saver guard on this bike.
Anyone come across one for a 990? I've had a good search but can only seem to find them for 250/350/450 ktms. To be honest the slave does seem to be very similar on both bikes but checking part numbers there different.
Any recommendations ?
Cheers

Part no. 60030047000 is described as CHAIN FAIL. PROTECTION but it did not save my clutch slave from being KO'd by a snapped chain....................

Ai there's one of them on there already.
Any aftermarket guards of covers available? I'm failing to find anything.
I don't run the oem sprocket guard as it's just a shit magnet but would like some e tea protection for slave cylinder.
