^^^^^^I agree with that ****. Only case saver to get is the UPP or Moose, they are the same. It has saved me a couple times.

Well.... After some research on the different case savers available I think I'm going to make my own. I have access to the materials and machine shop. I don't think in my case it would have helped to have a case saver. So I'm going to make one with more coverage over the shifter to deflect the chain away. I also ordered a tmd chain guide to keep the chain on the rear sprocket. Just for extra insurance.

I'd put my T.M. Designworks up against the Moose or UPP plus it has a chain guard so if you don't wear boots it won't suck your pants into the chain.

I made my own case saver. Two actually. One for 14 tooth sprocket and one for my 15 tooth.





The blue one is what I mocked the shape and bolt hole locations from.

Depends on what u ride. I don't think the older model case savers have a chain guard. But I'm pretty sure u can put your stock chain guard on with the case saver. The newer models come with a chain guard built in. This is the TM stuff I'm talking about.

But are they capable of running a chain guard on top of that? Or no? If you can put a chain guard on top of the case saver ill most likely go with Moose or UPP

To the best of my knowledge I don't think any run a chain guard on earlier models. Or able to put one on top unless its home modified.

What will make yours "a cut above the rest"? I'm asking out of curiosity not criticism. Thats why mine was twice as thick. Its as thick as our chains

More coverage and thicker. It needs to offer more protection to the shift shaft.

it's their normal poly case save with a chain guard grafted on. It's as wide as the chain and will absorb the impact unlike the aluminum ones that don't give and crack the case anyway.
