Chain rubbing strip for XC2011?
« on: March 02, 2019, 07:35:14 PM »
What rubbing strip should I buy as a replacement? At the moment the bike has the one with only one rubber. Read in a thread here that the dual one is a bad fit for the models between 2011-2015?
Thanks

I doubt you'll get any choice, I wouldn't hold much hope for still sourcing an original style (single insert ).  :027:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Just curious, why was the single insert better?

The new type is just perfect. I did 46,500 miles on my original 2011 and could probably have made it last longer. The new type reduces the chain slap noise that I found pretty tedious when on dirt roads.

I have a full maintenance log with photos of the new and old rubbing strips at http://www.tiger800rtw.com/tigger-maintenance-repair/
