I was wondering if it was against the rules to have a split CVT guard that bolts together? The rules do not seem clear about the construction method of the guard. I ask because it would be easier for us to install on our chassis if we could put one piece in from one side and the other piece in from the other side.

It is my understanding that as long as rule B.9.2 (Hazardous Release of Energy) is met such that "No direct path shall exist tangent to any rotating components," then a multi-part CVT guard that is bolted together is allowed.  Basically as long as you overlap the parts of the guard where you bolt them together, then the CVT is still completely surrounded by material that meets the rule requirements.
