I just got this chain guide , it came really quickly but it was a tight fit fit for my CRF 450R, I used the exsisting rubber originally that came with the stock guide, it seems to work just fine, the only problem was that the bolt holes didn't line up correctly, but with a little coaxing it worked.

Strong,light cool looking,just make sure you get Oem guide because some after market guides will not fit this cage.
Let's face it...carbon fiber parts look sick. While this part adds sweet, sweet black bling, it doesn't do much for weight savings or better function. Still worth the money for all the longing looks at the track.
Getting it on my drz 400 is a whole other story the mounting holes are about 1/16 off center to big. Not a problem a drill can't fix but still just another step you have to take. This issue was not one I would expect from lightspeed. Still it works good looks trick and we will see if it stands the test of time!
I bought this without the Acerbis (or stock) chain guide block and unfortunately the chain burned through the carbon fiber after 1 ride and before I noticed that I didn't have the block. Moral of story: don't forget the chain guide block! jumps price up to $80 and might not be worth it.
Do you need carbon fiber? No. It's pretty cool, it's light and it's tough, but where I was dissapointed is that this is just the 2 outer plates, it had no bottom to it. However, it's been on my bike for 3 years with no problems at all, so I can't complain too much
Fits well although there is a problem with one of the bolts being too long and potentially hitting the sprocket because the carbon fiber guide is so much thinner than the plastic one. Also helps to have the stock spacer in place.
This product is way lighter, look really good on the bike, and is tough! I would highly recommend getting this!
First Lightspeed product that I have bought and all I can say is WOW. Amazing Quality. Looks crazy good. Fit like a charm. Highly Recommended.
LightSpeed makes trick stuff and this is just another one, plus it works great.
the guide is noticably lighter that stock it looks great and matches oem exactly the only thing that would make it better would be if the rubber was included
The chain cut through the bottom of this chain guide in just a few hours of riding time. Absolutely a no buy item! Product should be removed from Motosport inventory. Motosport does not need to offer these types of inferior products.
I put this on an '02 YZF426 and the install was easy. Everything matched stock chain guide perfectly, just a few screws and you're in business. I also added the front sprocket cover and rear master brake guard to compliment the carbon fiber look. Have gotten a lot of comments on them. Other reviews complain about these being cheap, but carbon fiber is supposed to be thinner and lighter AND STRONGER, than the stock steel/aluminum. I would buy again for next bike.
Fits great that's all I know for now. You'll have to buy the rubber liner seperately. Haven't had time to test yet. It is light weight for sure so I kept the stock one on my top shelf. I'll post a review after my first "wash" ride
I bought this for my 08 YZ 450f and i didnt necessarily need it but i figured since i was buying other light speed stuff that i would go ahead and get this as well. fit was excellent
Beautifully made, looks very solid, too nice to bash up on the trail bike so I bolted it to the supermoto!!
Great chain guard, looks alot better over stock metal one. only problem is if its the only carbon fiber thing on your bike it might look a little out of place
Bolted on nicely with stock CR450 guide insert, holding up well, great Lightspeed product
Fits perfect and holds up really well. It will get a little rough looking but all you have to do is hit it with a little tire dressing and it's brand new again. Carbon looks real good.
The carbon fiber looks great! Stronger than in appears in the picture. The shape was exactly the same as the factory part. Holds the OEM (rubber) block perfectly.
