Greetings Sir Spud. I am pleased to report that after a "season" of riding with the front roller, all is well. Little wear is apparent and she still rolls smoothly. MSR replacement designated for the XR500R (my receipt doesn't show the MSR part number )

That's great! Thanks for posting the update.

I have now ridden about 30,000 miles with my 'chain slipper roller.' It continues to function very well, and I haven't had any problems whatsoever.

However, I have stopped using my Spud Rollers in the bike's chain guide. I discovered the impact from the drive chain was causing the roller bolts to fracture the plastic chain guide. Therefore, I have removed the Spud Rollers from my chain guide. In fact, I haven't even replaced the chain guide slider. I have left the bottom of the chain guide open. Since I am not taxing the bike's suspension anywhere near its limits, I haven't had any problems result from opening the bottom of the chain guide.

Therefore, my experiment with chain rollers is complete. If I ever decide to once again enclose the bottom of the chain guide, I will revert back to the stock, chain guide slider. I have sent a personal message to the forum moderator asking him to close my Spud Roller thread in the Vendor's Forum. I wish to thank everyone who purchased my Spud Rollers, and I wish you all ride nothing but happy trails.

Spud

spud, I have looked till my eyes are sore, what size roller to use for the single roller with a 48 tooth rear sprocket?

now i am confused, read post 48 and just don't see the reference to no rollers in ther rear slider bracket.

was it some where else?
post 48

"If you can manufacture any size you want, here are the optimal dimensions.

Rear Chain Guide Roller: 24mm X 24mm
Front Chain Guide Roller: 30mm X 24mm

I am currently using two identical chain rollers, size 24mm X 26mm, in my chain guide. "

I'm not sure I understand your question. However, as I stated in post #78 of this thread, I am no longer using any rollers in the chain guide. In fact, I have left the bottom of the chain guide open.

I replaced the 'chain slipper' with a single roller as described in post #5 of this thread.

sorry for the confusion, maybe the fact you are no longer using a roller where the chain guide is in front of the sprocket speaks volumes. why have you gone there, if i may ask?
thx
bob
you mean #78, right?
currently i don't even have a slider bracket on my swing arm much less a roller. guess i will just do the front roller.

Yes, I made a typographical error. Post #78 explains why I am no longer using rollers in my chain guide. I have corrected my previous post.

I do encourage you to substitute a chain roller for the 'chain slipper' located near the counter shaft sprocket.
