Hi everybody,
check those chain slider on your bike from time to time.
I have often had bikes here where the chain is already grinding into the swingarm and
have often wondered what will happen when the chain pulls it into the front sprocket.
Here is the result.
Bike came to a very sudden stop. :pinch:

Jorg. Thanks for the update. These notifications/warnings/advice threads are very much apreciated. What do you think should be a maintenance shedule? Every oil change maybe? Replaced mine 15 000 km ago.

Voël die manual sê elke jaar of 12 000km vir 'n oil change, die Manual het al die nodige informasie van scheduled maintenance ens op. Ek persoonlik doen dit op elke 6000km. Hoe meer gereeld 'n mens dit doen hoe beter is die vir jou bike.

15 000km.... Ek dink jy is al overdue vir 'n service

Sorry vir die moontlike misverstand. Ek diens die bike elke 5000km. Het bedoel wanner om die slider te check. Dan weer. Sal min tyd vat om te check met elke ketting skoonmaak en lube.

Haha! Ek wou sê jou 15 000km tussen diens is moer baie! Het dit toe so mooi as moontlik probeer stel dat jy overdue is vir 'n diens... Bly dit was 'n misverstand.
Ek dink dit vorm maar deel van deurlopige maintenance, sal bietjie mooier na my chain slider kyk met volgende diens.

Thanks Jorg! I think it's definitely time for mine to be replaced as well!

Also helps if you lube your chain regularly - look how dry that chain is...

Is there an after market slider available locally? - mine needs replacing.

Not to my knowledge.
I normally keep one each in stock for the A model and the E model.
They are just over R 500,00, but I would not advise to try and safe on that part.
If it does come loose and goes into the front sprocket at speed your back wheel could lock
and see you sliding down the road.
Or if it just wears right through the chain will damage the swingarm and I don't even want to
know what that costs.
