Swing arm protector seems too big?
Bike XT600 43F
I am replacing the round buffer that protects the swingarm from getting eaten by the chain.
It looks like a round (plastic) collar then a metal shim sits inside then this assembly goes on the swing arm at the front where the pivot bolt passes through.
Problem is the assembly is really loose 2mm+ clearance which seems would flop around quite a bit. Also as this assembly spins around it is effectivly metal on metal as the inner part of the buffer is metal and the outer part of the swingarm seal is metal.
Doesn't seem right? Anyone changed this recently and have some guidence?
Stupidly, I binned the old buffer long ago and can't remember if it fit loose or not?????
I'll try and dig up a picture of the bits. In this case a single picture is worth much more than a thousand of my words!
