Does anyone use the XR'S Only 15T case saver with the 14T sprocket?, or do you have to have the 14T case saver when using the 14T sprocket? :thumbsup:

yes. I have the 15t with a 14t sprocket. No issues. I even clamped the stock metal cage back on top of the case saver. Use plenty of loctite when installing. Make sure your allen wrench for the flat-head screw is a good allen wrench. That is not a screw that you want to strip.

The manual does not mention to use loctite, but I have read posts that guys are recommending to use it. Are you talking about using loctite on the setting plate bolts on the CS, or the case saver?

Do others recommend loctite on the CS bolts?

I cant really see no downside to using a threadlocker on all of the CS mounting hardware. I used red locktite on mine as it was not something I wanted to worry about coming off :thumbsup:

I use the red loctite on nearly EVERYTHING! I don't use it on the 10mm head gas tank bolts or the seat bolts. Those, I am careful to torque enough so they don't back out.

Oh yeah, I don't put it on any valve cover bolts (it can get in the oil during installation or removal). I also don't use it on the upper engine frame mount bolts.

Thanks for the info... I wanted to buy a XR's Only case saver, and just bought a 15T CS, and hoped the 15T case saver would be ok to run with the 14T CS and still get the protection the case saver offers. I like the idea of running the stock cover with the case saver as well. :thumbsup:
