14t

I want to put a 14t cs on my bike. I see this is being asked a bit lately on a couple of forums. Ive searched and it seems there's 'some' modification of the case saver required? Skierd I think mentioned needing to grind it down?
Anyone done it and can give some advice. Ive just forked out a ridiculous amount on a new swing arm protector and had my chain maul it after a short ride. The chain obviously needs replacing and stretched this weekend. Ive had shock off, measured with cs axel etc in line, happy with where it works adjusted, not happy with the low tolerance once it stretches. So for peace of mind I want a 14t. This bikes not my single track toy, its for blasting and weekend trips etc so close to stocks fine, maybe a little shorter. Cheers

I use a 14 CS and the Sandman case saver and guard. Works fine.

I left mine alone, the stock case saver fit back on. I didn't know it wasn't supposed to fit. I took it off the other day & the chain had "clearanced" the plastic. Seems fine.

Got the bike buttoned up and ready to ride yesterday after spending a couple of weeks on the new mods; tires, sprocket & chain.

I just put on a 14 tooth with the factory case saver. Put the chain on the sprocket, then the case saver on the chain and then slide the whole works on to the counter shaft. It would be very hard to do with the case saver installed on the case first.

I don't think it is super important as I've been riding like this for 30k miles. It probably would've been better if he used anti seize or something because I think I'm going to have to cut off the cs nut.

T-63 comments

First time off-road with the new T-63 rear today. Whooped-out sandy ATV trails and some rutted, narrow single track through pine woods. Perfect conditions, and I had plenty of traction on the single track - damp earth, roots, etc. I had aired down to 18 (16 in the MT-21 front).

Needless to say, the T-63 is a huge improvement over the worn T-wing that I rode last season (I bought the WRR mid season, and opted for a new front immediately, decided to finish the OEM rear). On road the T-63 gives me no cause for complaint. I do more pavement and gravel miles, less off-road, and for me the T-63 seems a good compromise. Price is right too.

First day in Moab today. We rode Long Canyon Rd and Potash Rd. Nothing too serious.







Tomorrow we are riding White Rim Road which is around 130 miles and generally is an all day ride.

Swapped out to the 13 tooth about Thursday, today swapped in a 48 rear, looked at my slider, had abut 1/2 left in the front leading edge, went it for. 50km ride, it's all gone and into the swing arm. So ordered up a 52 rear and going back to 14 front permanently. I'm sick of replacing sliders.
