The “Missing Belt Guard” is the one part that could save you hundreds of dollars in repairs that a warranty won’t cover. Now you can have complete peace of mind that your belt is protected.
This special “Missing Belt Guard” attaches onto the left swing arm and prevents stones or other debris from getting onto the drive belt and then lodging in the rear sprocket. Made of black Polycarbonate to be light, strong and durable.
Why did we not use aluminum or steel? Probably the same reason the factory didn't attach a belt guard on the inside. The tire is so close to the belt that it requires a very thin material and using metal would most likely damage the tire or belt if anything were to get lodged. The "Missing Belt Guard" will not blow out your tire or damage the belt and in fact if something does get lodged, it will tear off by design. Also, can you just imagine the pinging sound it would make every time a little stone hits metal? The tire and belt will always win the battle.
This is an easy install with complete instructions and additional hardware.
I have to travel about a mile to get to the paved road in New Hampshire from my house.
The Cam Am has also been up Mt Washington once which is also 7 or 8 miles up to the top. So far, no stones have landed on the belt. I did find it a bit difficult to get it attached without it touching the tire with the supplied directions. I'm sure I could do better (with alinement) if I had a second shot at attaching another one. Just be very careful before you stick it down. Unknown

I would have given it 5 stars BUT!!!!
I havnt had a chance to take it out for a ride after installing it yet. It went on just like the instructions said. VERY easy to follow the instructions and install. After I take it for a ride and determine that the plastic guard doesn't flop around and hit either the tire or the belt, I will change this to 5 stars.Unknown

Another thoughtful Product for older Can-am's.
Another great and easy to install product, for older Can-am's. I live on a gravel road and this belt guard adds piece of mind about keeping rocks out of the drive belt. Joe Parker

Great product and cheap insurance for your bike
This is as easy to install with little effort. Adds a extra level of protection for your Spyder for little cost. If you ride on any country roads, I would highly recommend it.Jason
