Hey Blue guys, hows it going over here? I have a question as to: does your buffer wear out more rapidly than the yz 250 or about the same? The reason I ask (some of you problably know this already) is because we are having over the past few months quite a dilemma as to why a large percentage of us are wearing them out extremly fast. Some say it's not running the chain tight enough (on the honda's this year you only run them with about 3/4 inch play at the most) others say they get much better wear if you use a 00-02 250 slider, others say it was just a bad batch made with inferior material so this is why I am asking you guys because of the 426 and 400 being out for years I'd fiquire I would get alot more feedback possibly. I myself think it might be a combination of too loose a chain and the fact that the 4-strokes vibrate the chain more when it's loose. I noticed that it's slightly scraping the edge of my mudflap too. THANKS FOR YOUR REPLYS - Apreciate it!
