Hi all,
I recently noticed that my bike was rattling a bit when I was free wheeling. Today I noticed that one of the clips that holds the plastic disc between the gear cogs and the back wheel spokes has broken off(don't have a clue what the technical name is but I take it that it's there to stop the chain hitting the spokes in the event of the chain coming off) .

The plastic disc is now very loose and really needs to be taken off. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement from and also if there's a version on the market that can be put on without the need to take the back wheel assembly off? .. The bike is a CBR Corsa by the way.

Any help gratefully received.

Cheers,

Steve

The plastic disc you refer to is a spoke protector you need to remove the back wheel and remove the freewheel cluster (the cogs) or (the block) as it is sometimes called.
If you are not sure take it to a bike shop.

If your rear mech is set up correctly you have no need of that plastic thingy. I always cut mine off with a suitably sharp knife (no need even to remove the rear wheel let alone dismantle the cassette).

If in doubt about removing the plastic thing, try to remember the last time your chain came off the largest sprocket and fell in between that and the spokes...never has, has it? Never will if the top stop is correctly set.

Took your advice and took the protector off completely. Had no problems so no plans to replace it.
