The first 5 years of KLR650's had chain guards which extended about 5 inches farther forward. To about the location of the forward Passenger peg mount bolt.
The original chain guard has put a permanent 'curl' and slight break in the drain flapper. And yes the inside/underside of the original chain guard has taken some chain abuse. But the guard had Kept the chain from 'eating' the flapper and nipple.
I gave a Chain Master to my brother (birthday gift) 2 years ago, he's yet to install it.
Yet would be soo simple.
I had to replace my original chain guard not too long back. ' Sun Warped', rubbing on things, snagging on the inside of passenger footpeg Bracket.
Maybe I'll offer to buy it back, my birthday isn't till Sept. (hint, hint)
I think I ordered that Chain Master thru Whitehorse Gear. $45.00 2yrs ago.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
