I have a very clean original condition shooting star & of course missing the chaingaurd. I bought a new one but it has a rear bracket with two holes and spears to mount to the shock mount. Is this correct & what is the bracket welded to the swing arm in front of the shock mount that has two holes, one above & one below the swing arm for? I can't find a good picture in my books. Any help will be great, thanks. Glenn.

A parts manual has really good parts pictures. The top hole of the brachet you refer to is for the bracket rivetted to the chain guard. The bottom hole is for the rear brake anchor strap.

There is an L-bracket welded to the front of the chain guard that bolts to another angle bracket that is welded to the swingarm. I could take a picture if you are in a hurry but the light would be better during the day.

The P/N for the chainguard is 41-7713.

There are 2 different chainguard setups, depending on the year. Earlier models, the rear bracket engaged a lug mounted on the swingarm in front of the axle, that I think you are describing... one lug above the arm, one directly below. Later models had a setup like I think your chainguard is, there is a bracket mounted further back with two holes that attach to the rear of the swingarm by the axle, on the flat.

So, you have the wrong one...you have a later chainguard, and an earlier swimgarm. I have an earlier, correct guard for your bike if you want to trade.... Email me at bleif@charter.net .

Edit...the lower lug under the swingarm is for the chainguide...it is all kind of an assembly. You need a parts book.

Thank you for your help. I knew how the front of the chainguard mounted and that the bottom hole on the bracket in front of the axel was for the brake stay and thought the top was most likely for the chainguard. Aparently I have an older frame & a late model chainguard. When I tried to buy one they all came up the same & even though I thought it was wrong, I figured I just did not know & when I got it I would understand how it mounted. I have a good manuel & parts book but trusted the people who were selling the chainguards to know if there were two different ones. They said there was only one & the part # has been changed. Live & learn.
