    Sliders?

    Anyone mounted swing arm spool sliders? Seems like a good idea for stability when jacking up the back to pull off the rear wheel.

    When Joemama extended my swingarm, I had him weld on a couple of nuts so that I could use some carriage bolts to serve the same purpose as spools. They work great!

    I wouldn't call them sliders because they are not. They are more like bobbins. Great idea and execution.

    You may want to re-think your dinner plans now!

    I have that same tri-fold ramp. Nice and lightweight and compact, but I always have to watch out so my boot doesn’t slip through the openings.

    I hear you, and totally agree!

    I really like this concept and think that it makes a lot sense - except for the price.

    Just a fast question... For you guys with two sprokets...
    How do you change one or other? Do you have 2 chains in your bags? How it's centered to work fair well with the chain?

    Thanks

    I either add or remove a small section of chain as needed. There is some slight mis-alignment between the front and rear sprockets, but I have not found that this presents any significant problems.

    If you measure between full forward versus full rear for your chain adjustment all you need do is loosen and kick it forward or back with no need to add or remove chain. My difference isn't as radical as Brians but it does make a big difference between on the road and off.
