chain eating frame away

you guys have been most helpfull and full respect to you for a cool forum.

but why is my chain eating my frame :thumbsup:

search as it has been covered before!

Adjust your chain regularly to minimise it.

is it some thing that won :thumbsup: t go away then

do you have a pic to show me where it's waring? I am curious.

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.

can someone please post a pic of this wear???

i have riveted a piece of metal to the alloy sub frame and it is working on that now

i packed up the runner on top of the swing arm with a packer and it cured it but it fell out so some thing permanent will cur this

sorry mountain max i will get you a pic as soon as pos

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!

can someone please post a pic of this wear???

Here Max. It is just scuffing on mine:

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:
