I was unable to find a zz chainguard, it may be of interest that the commonly available copies (got mine from M+P for around £20) can be modified to fit the zz swingarm. The mounting holes lined up ok, but a small section had to be cut out in order to fit around the lower shock mounting.
I have photos of the mod on photobucket if you're interested.

I've marked the section that will need cutting out, tin snips should work ok.

You're welcome, just been to the garage to check and found another mounting hole will have to be drilled in the top section just behind the cut out.

Not a problem for me, that tab has fell off my swingarm so I use three bolts and cable tie the top and bottom halves together (round the flanged bit)
