Noss Case Saver-Sprocket Cover Combo

To anyone that has the Noss Case Saver-Sprocket Cover Combo for the Z400 does it protect the shifter area also?


The shifter area is a big concern of mine.

Is the Noss one worth the $65.00 price compares to the Pro Design one at $25.00?

The good thing about the noss. Is that it covers the sprocket.

Ive torn up pants by them gettn in the sprocket. And my ankles have gottin chewed up by the bolts on the sprocket.

I have the pro design and no it doesnt cover the shifter to well. But usually running a case saver will save every part of the case.

Jus make sure you run some sort of case saver

The Noss cover is not a selling point with me because I can convert my stock cover to cover the sprocket with a Pro Design case saver on it.

I was just wondering if the Noss case saver protects the shifter area any better than the Pro Design case saver?

if I was YOU, I would look at a picture of each....see where the bottom bolt holes are and see how much longer each one was.

pro design

the pro design looks a little longer, BUT as I said with the added billet sprocket cover it will help protect the shifter side, but the stock plastic will do the same.

heres a link to ebay with a guy making custom case savers. looks easy to copy if you have any fab skills at all.

don't buy a tusk, they are a piece of crap and made of crappy aluminum not billet like the pro design

I have the NOSS cover on mine, it protects very well, much better than the stock guard or any other guards I've had. I'll take a picture later on for you.

The Tusk one is cheaper than both and can be used with the stock cover with no modification. I've thrown a chain with it and it did its job very well.

Biggie42 do you think the Noss case saver/cover is better then this one?

Here it is:


And yes, I think the NOSS case saver is the best out there.

Looks good!
Well before this week is over I will have a Noss case saver/cover or the UPP Racing case saver.

The thing I like about the UPP case saver is it fits tight to the case, it is not just relying on the mounting bolts to stop the chain and it is made out of polyurethane.

Well I bought the Noss case saver/cover.
Bolted up perfect and looks good.
My only concern is if the chain does break it looks like the case saver will direct the chain right into the shifter shaft area.


Anyone ever had this happen?

I just had a Noss fail on a customers machine. He threw the chain this past weekend and it busted the top post for the case saver and busted the shifter post on the case. This "case saver" doesn't save WooterWooterWooterWooter!

I ended up going with the Modquad chain guard. It utilizes either the stock metal case saver, or modquad's billet one (sticks out 1/4" farther). I opted to not spend the extra 25 bucks on their case saver and used the stock one. This chain guard was $54 on ebay I think. The noss machine definitely looks nice, the quality is there, but the function to absorb the impact does not. I threw one chain with this set up this summer, I was lucky that it just flew out the back and did not bind up.
