Upper chain roller

Recommended Posts

When I put the wheels back on my bike this summer I couldn't find the upper chain roller. I've been riding without it. Finally found it the other day but it seems to be doing fine without it. How important do you think it is?

Honda fitted it for a reason , I would install it

Exactly! Their looking to save every ounce of weight on a race bike. Also, in today's times, Mfg's look to save every penny they can. If it wasn't needed, it wouldn't be there.

Most probably it is protecting the rectifier from the chain when the swingarm comes all the way up. That or the inside of the frame.

I wouldn't bottom out my bike without it if I were you.
