I fitted the 14t gearbox sprocket today and while I was at it thought I'd investigate the case saver.
I made a small link that I bolted to the upper hole in the case saver which allowed me to secure the case saver using the gearbox sprocket cover bolts. With the cover in place it's completely hidden.

I'm in the process of moving to the winelands and mountains region, as soon as I'm a little settled I'll be cutting myself one. I was thinking 1mm should be OK.
What thickness is that plate in the pic

I didn't actually measure it but I reckon it's 1 mm. I don't think there will be enough space to fit the saver with a 15t sprocket and certainly not with a 16t.

From the angle of your pic the chain looks very close to the saver, how much clearance is there?

I'd need to take the cover off again to measure it but I'd think about 2-3mm

I suspect there's needs to be a reasonable air gap between the saver and the crank case to absorb the force and prevent the rumpling.

Yes, there is plenty of space behind it but it does sit quite close to the chain.

Mine will come soon, busy preparing the lexus to tow the ducati for my trek to the mountains. Heck even its front discs had hairline cracks. Not what I need right now but the car needs sorting first.

Can't believe I hadn't thought of doing it. So glad I saw that post in the custom ducati page. I do put master links on properly though, with a digital vernier. Anyway, it'll give me something to do, instead of BBQ on a weekend.
