I just used 1/4" weather stripping. The foam is dense and the adhesion is good. I didn't have to remove the swingarm. Also, I put a small washer between the bolt and the large washer to hold it down. I have had no problems so far.

I had a guy weld it for me. He prepped and welded the crack and filled in most of the damage to the top of the swingarm. He did a pretty good job, and it only cost $35.
Here's a picture of it:

I got a strip of neoprene which is used as wear plates on truck turntables and cut it to the same shape as the original slider. i placed this under the original slider the same way you have described just a different material which works much better than an old tube.

No crack yet but since I dont have any neoprene I guess Ill use the tire tube also.
Thanks a million!

I just bought a TM Designworks chain buffer.
Do I need to put something under it too or is it supposed to keep the swingarm from wearing unlike the stocker.
Also I have read that the TM makes some noise. What do you all recommend for that? Did I hear someone say Goop?
Isnt that what you use to clean your hands?

Thats what I really want to know. Do I need the goop for that?
I just tore down my '00, about 100 hours with the TM guide and about 4 with the stocker
There is a few scratches that obviously occurred when the stocker wore through over the seam/weld, but no other damage to speak of. I've heard of folks sealing under the guide but I thought that was to prevent the fasteners from vibrating out and lessen the noise.
I have a more recent model of the TM piece on my '01, it has a rail preformed into the slider for the chain rollers to ride on, as a result that spooky whining noise is nonexistant.
Doesn't look to be any damage to my '01 swingarm after another 80 to 100 hours with the TM slider. So that is my experience...

GOOP is an all purpose addhesive found everywhere.
