Chain slider
Permalink  
 


Hello,

I have just replaced my chain slider about 200 miles ago! and it has worn out already, has gone through so the chain is now hitting the end caps.

What could cause this? I am running 13-44 set up, i need new chain and sprokets anyway....

Any help would be great!!

Dan

Something very wrong to wear the new slider out in that short time Dan confuse

The only possible reason I can think of is a very slack chain curling up off the sprocket to wear on the slider but, even so, it should have taken that without wearing out so quickly.

Also, the material of the new sliders is harder than the original Yamaha part - or so it seem to me anyways.

I am very confused!

Brian

Yeah that's what i was thinking :/ the chain has a good 30-40mm slack, is this too much i wonder? i was advised it needs to be 30-50mm on here a while ago.
If i was to change to a 14mm sprocket, this would make it worse or better? (as i need new chain and sprockets anyway)
Thanks
Dan

just noticed the bottom half of the front chain slider

is hanging down... broke though the 6mm bolt hole..

The old trusty cable tie sort of fixed it...

Got a ride next week end.......

Steve... you have mail...
