- 1 big modular part for the chain stay with precuts for difficult stays, and two narrower parts for the seat stays.
- Identify the area to protect and proceed to install in a warm area (avoid installing at temperatures lower than 12ºC/ 53 F)
- Clean the area to protect from dust, mud and debris as well as from the rest of oils, or silicones, using alcohol or similar. Use only alcohol or alcohol derivatives. Do not use supermarket cleaners, as they have silicones that are the worst enemy of adhesives.
- Apply gently the Chain Guard, rubbing with your hand to help it adapt. While the glue is still fresh, you can reposition it if you placed it badly the first time.
- Apply pressure evenly around all the surfaces to help for a better adhesion
- Let it bond for some hours, and go use it!!!
AMS uses a strong automotive-grade adhesive, so for removal, they recommend using a hairdryer or heat gun to soften the adhesive and PVC and to facilitate the operation.
Install in a warm area. Avoid installing at temperatures below 12ºC/53 F.
