2010-12 chain slider wear

6 posts in this topic

my 2012 yz450f chain slider seems to be wearing out really fast. i have 13.7 hours on the bike and the chain sits so far down that the pin ends are rubbing the top of the slider. i dont ride in sand, i always keep my chain adjusted and lubed (bel ray super clean lube). i have never had a chain slider wear out ever. has anyone else had this problem.

Yeah, I have went threw one on my 11. R3 renthal chain, gold wore from the roller down on the 2nd ride, so I put an aftermarket one on. Not sure why it is doing this but there cheap enough.
