the purpose behind that is to be able to quicky and easily change that front sprocket.

feel free to correct me if u think i'm wrong.

that's why I ran my motocross bikes without the front sprocket cover.

Whats the point?

Wouldn't this cause shoelaces to more easily get caught in the chain?

The housing is still there, it is trimmed to expose the sprocket and chain.

its a reasonable mod to a race bike.. going from msrh to TWS (Texas World Speedway) u might wanna go +1 or -1 on the front, and IF its cut properly then u should be able to loosen the chain, pull off the sprocket, put on new sprocket, and tighten chain... roll out. but on a street bike it just brings up the issues stated above. on the track u don't have shoe laces and jeans to get caught in there.

I had my stunt bike front sprocket exposed for a few months then I watched a video of a guy almost losong a finger while stunting... so I put it back on. and I have one on my track bike because I street it and stunt it some too... if it was 100 % track, I might do it... but only if I got in the possition where I needed it done...

We remove them on our race bikes, and like Clayton said, the main purpose is to facilitate changes- but for street bikes? Hmmm, might be more dangerous. Of course, anything can happen and you could be hurt from lots of other moving and hot parts on a bike in a crash too.

We also wear leathers on track, and there's no shoe laces or pant legs to get caught up in there...

Cutting them like that does look cool, but a what potential cost... (not meaning money)

What is the point here? I can't tell if you're agreeing with me, arguing with me, or just being a smartass...
