Yesterday I decided to change the mounting hardware for the Spud Rollers in my chain guide.
For the last 4,700 miles, I have been using two, 5/16 x 2-inch bolts, nyloc nuts and washers to secure the polyurethane chain rollers in my chain guide. Yesterday I switched to to two, 3/8 x 2-inch bolts and nyloc nuts.
Since both the bolt heads, and the nyloc nuts of my new, 3/8-inch hardware are much larger, I decided not to use the washers shown in the photograph above.
I'm pleased to report the hex head bolts and nyloc nuts hold my Spud Rollers very securely in the chain guide.
