TM designs chain slider

7 posts in this topic

I have searched threads and didn't find the exact anzwer I was looking for. I have two issues that I need to solve on my 08 yz450f. The first issue is chain slapping. My chain slaps voilently when I ride a gear high and lug the bike. I know I could just shift down but I don't like revving the bike when I don't have to when I am out trail riding. My chain is tensioned properly( using a regina ZR z-ring chain) and I am using the stock slider. My other problem like everyone else has is the stock slider rubbing into the swingarm. I know of the examples on how to fix this but am asking if using the TM designs chain slider will solve both my problems?

The TM design chain slider will solve the rubbing on the swing arm issue as it has a rubber pad on the underside of the slider. As far as the chain slapping that is just the nature of a four stroke. Mine does the very same thing. I notice it more when the chain is overly loose but it will still do it when the chain is properly tensioned.

As far as wear and tear I would highly recommend the TM slider!

I was debating on buying the slider or fixing the issue such as you (Grayracer) went about it. If the TM designs slider wont do anything for chain slap I will most likely use Grayracer's method.

Thanks

I have a TM designs slider. While it is stronger and supposedly "indestructable" (haha yeah right), it is actually much louder than my stock slider was. It makes an annoying slapping sound that makes it sound like something is about to break and fly off my bike. But they look great and are much more durable than stock (stock without the plate mod) so I think I can deal with the noise. Had I seen the plate mod before now, I would have gone that rout

You should have heard one of the original design ones, before the rubber pad went on the bottom. :thumbsup:
