I don't know, but it happened twice.

As good as the TUTORO is it does have a few design flaws. I carried them for a few a few years and became familar with both it's good and not so good attributes and the designer ws not open to design advice. A heat shield is another good user mod. No doubt about it.

By far the most common break occurs at the groove in the clear cylinder for the o-ring just beneath the level of the black base. It usually shows up first as a leak.

I made a few suggestions that would have improved reliability, but they weren't well recieved. The owner has a great deal of what in my previous life we called "pride in authorship." Sounds like a good thing, but it means you had reasons for doing what you did that you are hanging onto and preventing you from seeing better options. Or something like that.

I like what you did there.

Guard Pics

I've attached my chain guards and heat shield installs. I cant figure out why the heat shield pic wont straighten up, sorry about that. usually i can save it and it will straighten.

In the chain guard pic, you'll see it is 2 pieces. I started off just with the rear piece, about 45 deg and about 5". This took care of the top case fling. The side piece was added afterwards. The side piece hasnt done much about side case fling, but its there so i left it. Needs to be down further. For the time being, i rub a wd40 rag across the back of the side cases.
