Gt thunder sprocket guard

I just got an outer sprocket guard for my z400 and can't figure out how to install it. I have 4 Allen bolts and 4 lock nuts. L. Summers told me the Allen bolts replace the stock sprocket bolts, and go in from the backside. Then the nuts go on the outside. ??? Doesn't sound right...
Anyone put one of these on?

That's correct info.. what are u going to use to protect the rotor?

Stock frame... Stock wiring harness... Stock rear brake caliper and master cylinder.. that's about it for stock stuff left on bike.. $...$...$...

You mean the instructions Lazarus gave me are correct?
It just doesn't work with the nuts and bolts he gave me. There's no room to put anything in from the inside of the hub/ sprocket. Everything is stock here, swing arm, sprocket, etc. I sent him some pics so be could see what I mean.

I want to find a poly guard for the brake rotor. Or, a half aluminum skid just for that side. Not much needed, really, here in the sand of Florida. Any suggestions for that?

Might have to slide the axle over to the left a little bit. Running a sprocket guard is nice, but they don't have a great setup for the z. Without a rotor guard, it kinda defeats the purpose. Plus, if your running a cast carrier, sprocket guards could snap them with a big hit...

I think you will have to slide your sprocket and hub out where you can work on it and then re-install it when you are done.
