The center wear rail was pretty much gone, I’ll take a comparison shot next to a new one. I started to notice more chain noise which made me take a closer look. Probably should have replaced them a little while ago. Interestingly, my wife’s bike only has 200 less miles and look much better, but I had put a Hot Foot Moto swing arm slider on it when it had maybe 50 miles on the odometer.

Steve, can i ask please what chain your running, and also front & rear sprocket sizes?.

Be good to know if its a stock set up still?, or you have a bigger or smaller front/rear sprocket etc to get an idea on the wear/use.

As thinking maybe with a 13t it might wear a little less than with a stock 12t given a little extra height?.

Stock gearing all around. I have the same chain on both bikes, which I'd have to double check what the exact model is but they were sealed chains, I believe x-rings but I'll have to look to be sure. I agree the 13 should certainly help, and is a popular change with many MX guys.

Are these parts still available from LP, or did you stock up when they were? I should get an extra set.
