Oh sorry , 2cm-3cm. I says in manual 20-30mm so I confused them. Any way I've checked almost everything that can probably make the noise. But I think ita the chain slider, If not , moving to the next thing . I m gonna find it no matter what. It's the only thing that turns me off in my bike. I want to ride and the only think that makes noise is the breeze 🙂 . I didn't have time to build the slider yet cause I built racks for the side bags. I will upload better photos the following days.

Did you get earplugs yet?


P.S. racks look good!

Not yet, I still got some energy to spend on searching and fixing things. I will give a shot to the slider and if it's the same I will get the earplugs.

So I did make the slider but the noise was worse. I think cause it doesn't fit on the swingarm 100% . The good thing is that finally I know for sure that the noise is from the chain hitting the chain slider. As I install it I noticed that the chain was to close to swing arm at the top of the slider and that got me worried. Is the 15 tooth the stock size indeed ? I did a search but couldn't find a solid answer . The noise is coming from the bottom side of the slider , the chain hits the slider in every bump but I can't say for sure if the noise is from the chain hitting the slider or the the slider hitting the swingarm ( cause it doesn't touch all the way the swingarm ). Can anyone with gen 3 please take a picture of your slider ?

Thx . I saw that site but I saw another thread here in this forum that one guys claimed that stock sprocket is 16t . So 15t it is! Can you please take a photo of your slider ? I want to see how it fits to the swingarm. Check the attached photo to see the two points I want to check. Thank you very much, I appreciate your help.

Photos of mine:











Looks like I've run both 15front-41rear and 15front-42rear. The change on the second one was accidental.

excellent. Looks exactly like mine. I ve got an idea while looking your pics , maybe my rear shock need to be tighter so the swingarm doesn't have so much movement and touch the slider so hard ? Since I got the bike I didn't check the shock, and as I've been told ( I didnt saw him cause I bought the bike through a store ) the previous owner was a skinny guy , I'm 90kg. Check the shock in photos , can you understand if it's too loose ?

I can't tell. I suppose I can take a look at mine, but I've run it at the same setting with me riding two years ago at 165 lbs and with me at 195 lbs and my wife on the back. I'm not saying this is a good practice, but I'm still getting 17k miles out of a chain and sprocket set.


Here's the ear plugs I've been using the last few years. You can order them in a minute, and they show up in the mail.
