Chain rubbing strip T2051795
« on: March 23, 2020, 08:53:14 AM »
I just did my 10,000 km service in early March for my 2018 XR and the rubbing strip was not changed.

Maintenance schedule states renew every 10,000 km.
I eyeballed the rubbing strip and it still looks good to me though.
Probably a good idea to stock the part T2051795 rubbing strip moulded.

Any recommendations where I can get it at a cheaper price with shipping to Malaysia?

Thanks

I put over 120k km on my 2012 XC road & dirt with no need to replace the strip. The required replacement schedule on the part is over done IMO.

There is a rubbing strip included in the 40k (km) service kit. I looked at the one on my bike that was supposedly changed at 20k (km) and it is still like brand new so I didn't bother installing it. These newer ones seem to last way longer than the originals.

I think you might have  missed the point. I never bought or needed one.

I replaced one at about 30k miles just because I noticed that I should replace it according to Triumph. With the old one cleaned up, next to the new one, it was hard to see what the wear issue was. I did look at the strip at about 60k miles. Seemed in good shape. Maybe if riders run really loose chain tensions it is a problem?

The problem was with the actual manufacturing of the first ones back in 2011-2012. They wore quickly and then people started wearing groves in the swing arm with the chain rubbing on it. Triumph changed the design and construction and started recommending a replacement but the newer design strip does not seem to wear so although it is a recommended replacement item and I'm sure most dealers would do it because there is a fairly significant amount of chargeable work involved the reality is that if owners keep an eye on the rubbing strip and replace it only when it starts to wear badly they will in fact probably never need to replace it.
