Is anyone else going thu chain sliders every time they ride?

Recommended Posts

Is anyone else going thru chain sliders like crazy? I have a brand new ssr 110dx3. I got the beefy slider from t bolt and I still went through it in 4hrs. The chain is not to tight, it popped off twice! I ride it hard. I cant keep buying them its going to get expensive. Also what modding can i do to the chain tightener to make it more beefy, the little bolt is crappy. Anyone have any ideas?

if you chain is to loose the remove a link. If you went through a beefy so called chain slider in 4 hours then you should contact where you bought it from and see if they can help, perhaps you got a bad one I am not sure. You will go through chain sliders, I even go through them on my rmz250 but not as fast as 4 hours.

Disable the chain tensioner while making the chain adjustments at the swingarm, and, if you run out of adjustment, remove two links like Jeremiah recommended. From the pictures, the chain is still extremely loose, even with the chain tensioner in place.

Also, move the chain adjusters all the way forward, overlap the chain, and cut it to fit. Looking again at the pictures, you're out of adjustment.

I took 2 links out of the chain, got 2 new chain sliders from t bolt, softened the rear shock, and ordered a 17 tooth 420 front sprocket to raise the chain a little. The only thing I am waiting on is a little warm weather, then its off to the ridge to test it out.

Heres the ol one...

I was having the same prob on my bike. I made a chain slider out of a snowmobile hifax. It only cost 5 bucks and a bout 1 hour of time plus I still have a lot of extra material left over. Just cut to size' heat with a heat gun. Mold to desired shape and counter sink all bolts. Have had it on the bike for more than 30 riding days with almost no signs of ware.

Ok guys I have been riding for 3 days in a row with not a lot of wear on the slider. To fix it I sofened up the rear suspension until it was the same stiffness as the forks. Then adjusted the chain to the correct tension. I should be getting the front 17tooth sprocket in soon, which should get it all the way off of my slider. Thanks everyone.
