Where are you getting them and how long do they take to ship? I need it for next weekends night ride!
Also, what size front sprocket are you running?

Edit, the long version since I made it to a computer:

I'm guessing mine wore out because the OEM chain is getting kinky (despite being thoroughly lubed), and because I was using the full suspension travel yesterday on the jumps. Sooo, if I replace the slider, I should replace the chain. And if I replace the chain, I should replace the oem sprockets. And since I'm replacing the sprockets, I'd like to go up one in the front to 14 front and 47 rear. This will bring the overall ration down just a hair from OEM, but will get the chain much further from the slider, to hopefully eliminate slider wear. But if I go 14 front, then my current aftermarket engine case guard won't fit, and I'll have to buy the freedom industries one.
And that's how a $50 piece of plastic is going to cost me $300.
Dammit.
