    chain guides ?

    Looking for lower chain guide roller for my 2010 5 spot. I also still have hard time with stiff rear link movement. That's after removing shock and a year and a half of solid riding.

    Gamut chainguide

    I put a Gamut chainguide and bashguard on my new 5spot and have really liked it. It works way better than the BlackSpire Stinger on the Highline..

    The Gamut is the best 2 ring guide out there. That roller is super quiet super smooth, and you are not limited in your chain lube choice.

    I experienced the same, two of the pivots were quite sticky. I pushed the bushings out, wiped them off, greased them and reinserted them, and fastened all bolts according to the torque spec. That really helped a lot, but there was still some stiction so I retightened the two pivots with highest torque spec about 10% looser, which helped further.

    From searching on the forum I got the impression that some Spots have been delivered with bushings that were slightly too large, causing some stiction. You might want to call Turner if you think this may be the case for you, but I'd recommend loosening all bolts, then retightening one pivot at a time and checking for stiction. If one pivot has stiction try pushing out the bushing etc as I did (but be careful not to scratch the bushing).
