Cover the frame before the chain - frame guard

Yesterday I did a slide onto the frame because the frame is already heavily worn by the working chain.
To do it I used a cutting board. I wonder if would work?
How do you do you protect the frame?
Do you have any patents?

Thanks from kli, Idle and tourist

We've actually used cutting boards to make chain sliders for our vintage Husqvarna's since you can't find them.....

I regret to inform you that I hold a patent on this invention.

You will see that your design not only is identical to mine, and that mine precedes yours as evidenced by the date displayed.

My solicitors will be contacting you regarding this matter.

You can mark it with z paint pen as I did to see if it's doing it's job properly.

It's probably not a big concern for those that don't ride often.

I thought it was a good idea as I ride the piss out of mine.

Do you have split link or riveted chain?
I had noticed on mine that only split link was worned from frame, other links on chain were fine.

I have split link.
After today's ride, I can say it does not work.
Cutting board was too soft and disappeared after one hour.

I just change chain and go vith rivet link, maybe it' s just to wide on place of split link.
unfortunately didn' t ride it yet.

I have 2003 and I didn' t notice that chain is touching frame until i change to newer chain slider on swingarm.
Original chain slide was flat, without guide for middle of chain.
I' m thinking that newer chain guides are running chain more right, closer to frame.

Another thing that could have influance is maybe front sprocket.
if sprocket is wider or can be moves left/right, it will also guide chain in right closer to frame.
Maybe you can try put shim on axle between sprocket and zeger to keep sprocket more to right.

Wouldn't putting the split link the other way around make it work like a rivet link? Installing would be a bit PITA.
