The best reason to remove it is to replace it with the Zeta guard from Forrest over at www . wheelingcyclesupply . com

20 second, I cant get the damn thing off. They must have used super glue to put mine on. I cant get either of the 2 screws loose.

Funny you should mention that. I can get one off, the rear one, but can't get the front one off either. I've tried impact driver and other methods but no go.

I agree it seems like it's glued somehow. Cheap piece of plastic too. :thumbsup:

The only downside to it, which I looked past, is when you lube your chain...the guard keeps the excess "goo" from flinging back up at you and the bike. Other than that, its another ugly plastic piece!

I was worried about that when I replaced mine with the Zeta but I haven't seen any dirtiness on the bike from the chain after putting on the Zeta...But then again I use Maxima Chain Wax which is much cleaner anyway...
