I just tried to install a TM Designworks 2 stage Chain Slide-n-Guide chainslider on my 2006 YZ450F. The top hole matches up perfectly, but the bottom hole is 8 to 10 mm short. Anybody else have this problem??

I tried to call TM Designworks, but they are on vacation from 12/19 through January 1st. I think they may have put the wrong part in the bag.

Try giving Zip-Ty Racing a call at 1-760-244-7028. I just ordered a TM Design kit for my '07 YZ450F from them. I installed two sets of TM Design kits on my other bikes last year without a problem. My guess would be you the wrong part or a defective one.

Mine fitted perfectly, except the allen bolt holding the stock slider on was stripped.

After contacting TM designworks and explaining my sistuation it appears that Motosport has their head up the a$$. Their entire inventory is mislabeled. They are sending out the 2002-2004 chain slider in bags labeled 2005-06. The only difference between the 2002-4 part and the 2005-07 part is that the 2005-07 part has noise suppression foam covering 3/4 of the length on the inside of both the top and the bottom while the 2002-04 part foam only covers the rear 40% of the inside. Also the bottom whole on the 2002-04 part is 3/16 farther forward than the 2005-07 part.

DO NOT ORDER THIS PART FROM MOTOSPORT UNTIL THEY GET THIS STRAIGHTENED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!
