Front Sprocket eating my chain guide?

Hey guys-

I cracked open my front sprocket to swap my 16T for a 17T and I saw the chain guide chewed up. Is this normal? There does not seem to be any other issues that I can find.

Is this normal?

08 ADV, 16tx45t

The old girl does get a bit or a work out.

Shit happens. You may have got a rock in there. The 16 th sprocket normally doesn't touch it. The 17 th will over lap, but there's a slight cutout to miss it.

Don't ride it like that, it will lock up the rear wheel when it lets go.

Yes it is normal.

However, you should make sure the bolts that hold this plastic piece on the swingarm, are properly bolt. These bolts have been reported to get loose and create the problem Zuber is referring to. There is a nice fix, installing a bolt from the top to the bottom, M6x100 of the swingarm, as these two bolts are aligned.

Well actually...
I just replaced the chain slider on a 950.
It had completely worn though and came off in two pieces.

As stated before, it would have been BAD if it had come off and gotten in the rear sprocket while riding.

Something to check guys.
