    Howdy Bill and first off I gotta call this a successful saga on the 08 WR250 you sold me that had the BMP engine guard mounted around the front sprocket ...

    No pics but I do have the video here of when the master-link(ML) released on a mountain-road climb and the chain unwound off the bike... Your engine protector saved the engine and did sustain a broken tip on its chain-leading edge ... So when I rolled back down to the river where I knew someone would be there to help install the ML I usually carry with me, your guard was mounted upside down to put the 'jagged' edge on exit\bottom side of the sprocket allowing the Husky to be ridden home as always :)

    Good to see you back ray_ray.

    Not under this particular circumstance but a lesson learned, we all should carry a spare master link.

    Sheared a cs bolt that junked the case saver and lug that it mounted too.
    Luck of the draw sometimes.

    I like that you kept the clutch pulled in with the engine still running. Safety first on the side of a mountain. Definitely always carry spare chain bits as well, great habit that makes it easier to get home safely.
