Default chain slider and guide.

     

Hi all, got an 06crf250r and I need to replace chain slider and guides. I was wondering if anyone had any preferences on what brand to buy and for good reason? Has anyone ever used the TM design works? They're very expensive and cant justify buying the set, unless I could get a blue one Then id buy..

I will also be replacing front and rear sprockets as well as a new chain. When I replace the slider and guide. im still researching on a set up I should go with for MX riding.

Thanks for reading

What is wrong with OEM parts?

I forgot to mention the bike is used and I dont know how long thw OEM stuff has been on there. How long does OEM typically last if the chain has the correct slack?

They will last a long time. If the bike is used, then I would suspect that it still has the OEM units on it. I have very rarely had to change them on my Hondas.

I've run both OEM and aftermarket on many different bikes, and I can't tell if one lasts longer than the other.....

Proper chain adjustment and lubrication will help the chain guide and guide blocks last longer.

Things to also keep in mind,

Too small of a counter sprocket can cause excelerated wear on the slider, as well as too large or small of a rear sprocket will excelerated wear on the guide blocks.

all last a long time just give them a bit of grease on the sliding part before riding or after washing.
