    I got mine the beginning of August. I had a little trouble getting it to fit in the frame so I ground down one of the spacers a little on the sidewalk to get it to fit. That could be throwing it off a little. Running the chain too tight might have tweaked something when the suspension compressed. Just because I'm a poor mechanic doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad product. I didn't get the braced one because I figured it would get in the way if I had to hop a curb someday.

    Yeah inexpensive if it's low price, but still decent quality!

    Definitely keep us posted. No working chain slider is a deal breaker for me.

    I've read that Kepspeed is bigger in some other area of motorcycling, I forget which, but supposedly they have a pretty good name. I read that on another thread on this site.

    If you get one with a brace will the rear tire hugger fit? Also, that brings up the question - does yours have mounting provisions for the stock, rear hugger?

    Bottom brace version should allow you to keep rear hugger, it does come with 4 small brackets and screws that you mount to pre-drilled holes in the swingarm.

    More than likely im going to fit the stock chain gaurd to the kepspeed

    Ah I didn't realize it was a bottom brace.

    I was hoping that could be made to fit somehow.

    The genuine G-Craft swingarm has a similar looking small chain slider. It's probably fine if you keep your chain adjusted properly. I was measuring the chain slack by pushing up and down on the chain in both directions. I think you're only supposed to push up on the chain and measure in one direction. The kepspeed is made to fit the stock fender. The spyker has the top brace, I'm not sure if the stock fender would fit, doesn't look like it would.

    The chain slider is small but sufficient considering its shape. The chain hovers off to the side of the frame with the pad as support, so its not 100% over the frame and doesnt make contact anywhere else. But do see that if chain were improperly aligned or to tight this would be an issue, I think it will be fine but only time will tell.

    Hash marks seem to be acccurate chain lines up perfect. I am very pleased with this purchase so far, thanks for all the insight guys.

    P. S. A... DubSolo is leaving the Dynojet Family and going aRacer!

    Before switching completely over will finish up Fine tuning with DynoJet set-up, this will give me a Comparison from an End Users perspective.

    A few good reasons to switch... #1 Hard Racing #2,,, this video showing a really cool feature.





    That is all for now Carry On...

    Already do with Dj set-up lol,,, but not on purpose. I suspect it has something to do with Pv3 dfco, not working properly.

    Im really not a fan of the back fire feature, but is pretty cool to see at night.
