RT3 chain guard. #1
I have looked everywhere for the upper chain guard for this bike. I found the smaller lower chain guide but the larger upper guard is like hens teeth. Anyone have a suggestion where to find one? It's the only thing missing now since i've located all the other missing items and I would like one. Maybe I just need to keep looking on EBAY till i find one. If that's the case, so be it. Just thought i'd ask.

You probably know this but I'm pretty sure the DT2, DT3, RT2, and RT3 all use the same guard.

Someone once posted here how they made a small modification to install an AT/CT guard also I think...

1963 YG1-T, 1965 MG1-T, Allstate 250, 1970 CT1b, 1971 R5, 1973 AT3MX, 1974 TS400L, 1975 RD350, 1976 DT175C, 1976 Husqvarna 250CR, 1981 DT175G, 1988 DT50, 1990 "Super" DT50, 1991 RT180, 2017 XT250

I did not know any of that, still pretty new at knowing what alternate parts of other bikes that can be used else where. Thanks for the info, i'll get right on that and search more on the internet. I don't mind doing some modification if I need to. Part of the fun of restoration. Thanks Mark.

They are made out of thin unobtainium and my brother can’t weld that stuff.

I may have contributed to the shortage.



The CT2/CT3 guard will fit the RT2/RT3 with the 39 tooth rear sprocket but not DT2/DT3 with the 44 tooth.



For some reason the guards crack after awhile on the RT2/RT3.

The hours spent riding my Enduros is not deducted from my life span.

Now I know where all the chain guards are on the planet. Thanks for the info on what guard I can and can't use.
If any time in the near future you get tired of all those parts let me know, i'll take one off your hands, not for free of course. In the mean time, i'll start hunting on EBAY with my new info from you. Much appreciated.

They can be welded with the right person/welder, mine had the fatigue cracks and my guy TIG welded it up, looks like a scar now and makes my bike look tough.

Exactly what I found when I sand blasted it. I’m sure I can find the right guy when it’s time comes.

It's obvious from what I read here that a damaged one could be made to work and look good. That gives me more options as I look for one. Thanks guys.
