I'm not sure yet. My old chain slider was intact enough to use it for tinkering purposes. Then I'll have to get my wife to write in the changes on the 3D printer and make a trial mockup. I already have the design idea in my head. We're both just over the Covid and have been sleeping much more than usual after getting off work.
Any update yet?? I am stoked to see if you were able to make it!

My wife printed me the regular seal guard/ chain slider. She hasn't made me a modded one yet. So far the one she made me is holding up which is a good thing. Since I am looking at this again, seeing my picture of the new one installed, I have an idea on how to possibly make a prototype. Since the modded one will use some of the original print files, this may be doable without a lot of hassle.

Well I would love to buy a 3D printed one from you if your wife would be interested in making another one. Mine just broke.

I am going to have my wife print 2 of them. One a full usable regular one and the other the same thing but filled solid in front of the mounting bracket where the screw hole is. The solid filled one I will be able to cut out and get the exact dimensions for my modified seal guard / chain slider. Then I will ask her to print a working model of the modified seal guard/ chain slider. She always has something printing so I will have to have her slip these in between projects. For now, I did talk to her.

How’s the progress on that mod??

My wife printed me out the seal guard / chain slider for me to play with. This is a rough copy that I will butcher up to see if I
can make it work the way I want it to. It looks solid but it has very little in-fill so I can cut it up easier. The plan is to make the hole the correct size to go around the swingarm. My real mod will be trying to figure out a way to slide it on the swingarm and get it into position without messing up the strength and integrity of it. My initial idea is to leave an opening with a slight ramp so the chain will not and can't catch on it. I'll see if it's possible. I'm hoping to make this where it can snap on, spin around and then screw the mounting bolt on if there's enough room.

Here is a picture of my Buell engine. The gray circle in the middle is the cover that my wife printed out for me. This is also a prototype. The original cover wasn't bolted in place and fell off while I hit a bump. I installed the temporary cover to hide my electronic module under it.
