Maybe if it worked there is an aftermarket one for that?
Chain slider? $38.37 at cheapcycleparts.com. OEM Part number 52170-MN1-681. Item #15 on the list.

So, I did a valve adjustment on the L yesterday, and yes they were tight. After the adjustment (of which I did 3 times) just to "practice" it, but I feel I got some better throttle responce from it. Sound right? It's rather here this week, 38 high for the day, so, I'll take a longer ride maybe,......................friday. It'll warm up to 50 by then.

Boojum,

Well too bad for you. It's 57' here with a clear blue sky. I'm taking my bike out for a spin.

Hey man, I'm usually the first one to reccomend some aftermarket stuff or some type of modification, but in this case I would go with the OEM stuff, and in addition to the frame slider check the other plastic slider pieces too, I couldn't believe how worn mine were, they are cheap and must have parts.
