I am new to the bigger Orange rides. I've had a few of the smaller ones... 640 Adv, 125 MXC...
I purchased a 2007 990 Adv about 6 months ago. I will be putting locktite on my slider bolts before my next ride.

I am so sorry to hear about your crash and problem with the chain slider.
I am happy that you are alive and able to warn us about this potential problem.

Thank you for sharing this unfortunate event. You just might have saved a few of us from experiencing the same fate... or worse.

You really should talk to your dealer and see what he has to say.
That might give you some direction on your next step in getting this rectified.

I WAS one of those the guys that would say "don't add to the problem getting lawyers and insurance companies involved"... then I got wiped out by a car that ran a RED light. I didn't contact a lawyer and delt with the other drivers insurance company on my own. BIG MISTAKE. They will take advantage of you and see your "weakness" of not getting a lawyer.
They walk all over you. It was impossible to get them to pay my medical bills! NEVER AGAIN! I will contact a lawyer anytime I have a major problem. The insurance companies taught me this. They are their own worst enemy.

Personally responsibility is one thing that I believe in. I am not sure if this your fault like others suggest.

Hang in there, get well soon,
