The numbers show what gear the transmission is in when the pointer is aligned with them....

Hi there,

I'm restoring a 1951 125cc machine and was reading about
the chain guards and I was wondering if the white part is
just for the numbers or that it is the whole raised
"Land" area.(i'm ready to start the painting job for this
part)

Plus my numbers are 3201 (not 1023 as described on the
website chainguard page) but mine is a replica so this
could have been done on purpose of course

and finally does anyone have an idea why these numbers
are there ? and if they stand for anything ?

Thanks
Joep
