    Shifting limitations on the Mojo

    This may be specific only to the 06' SL drivetrain spec.
    Heads up: You should NOT use your small chainring in combination with your 11-13-15 tooth cogs. When in this combination, the chain will rub the bottom of the swingarm near the bottom bracket. It's not a huge deal, as these gears can be duplicated in the middle ring. However, if you are a careless (read 'reckless') shifter like me, you will find yourself in these gears once in awhile.
    This chain rub will take the polyurethane coating off pretty quickly. So make sure you protect that area with something.

    I have had this problem with the 07 xtr build and solved it with a piece of velcro. I just used the fabric side with the sticky back on the under side of the bottom bracket. While the problem is not with rubbing but with the chain banging when the trail gets technical and I don't get a chance to shift into the middle chainring, it still does a number on the botom bracket gelcoat. If I ever stop riding I'll post some picks of what I did.
