search as it has been covered before!

Adjust your chain regularly to minimise it.

It's hit my subframe now and again. Minimise it by keeping the chain adjusted properly and maybe wrap something plastic with zip ties around the subframe. I'm thinking about riveting a thin piece of stainless steel onto the frame as soon as I come across some.

Hey Everyone,
I too have experienced the chain moving over to the left striking the square aluminum frame. I took a 4" long piece of radiator hose, sliced it longways, and zip-tied it over the rub. I am 250 lbs and thought it may be a result of landing hard on the suspension after some air? Not sure though, I keep my chain always at the 2" freeplay mark. Paranoid about tightening it anymore since I'm so damn big. One thing that has help considerable was to tighten my rear coil spring to its limit. Love the blue man!

Hi there,

Mine is the same .
The chain hits the subframe in desacceleration, more using longer final ratio:
as 14/44 45 ... and at 14/50 and up it hits less. :thumbsup:
