that something so simple could cause me so much greif? I am talking about my chain slider. a couple weeks ago I went riding and for some reason the slider started to bow to the side, allowing the chain to rub on the swingarm and tear the chain slider to hell. so I bought a new one. everything was fine for the first couple of rides. then on saturday its starting to do the same thing! what the hell?! its not like this is a complicated piece of equipment. its a damn piece of plastic held on with a couple screws. the only thing I can think of is possibly my wheel is misaligned... but I checked and everthing seems fine.
