Have any of you guys had this problem? It takes the Teflon coating off the top of my halflink chain and it's super annoying to hear the plastic sound when you pedal. I might just take a file to the guard and hopefully not screw up.

Exactly that. Just file it down. It'll take a bit but it works , don't go to a bike shop because they'll charge you.

I remember my primo alloy dsg moved on me a few times and went unnoticed. My chain actually ate up the guard lol. I though it was pretty weird especially since I never noticed till I took it off but my chain was undamaged.

I have a modded GLAND and it rubbed. Eventually your chain just rubs it enough for it to wear down

Yeah, but I like black chains and there's no point if a bunch of the color comes off..

Then get a file or grinder? Plus your chain would just be marked up on the inside/bottom where it makes contact. It wont hurt the chain.

Of course, materialwise, it's metal vs plastic. I'm just saying the Teflon coating is rubbing it all off of the top and stuff so there's no point in running my colored chain. I might go back to running my KMC Z 410 soon. That thing has been trusty since I had my Hyper Spinner Pro.

Wow your concerned about the colour coming off your chain? Quite BMX now and take up fingering your arsehole in the shower

I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.

So youre upset because your chain, which is metal and is ALWAYS in contact with other metal, is losing its paint?

Regardless, get a KMC 410H. I have the black one and its not painted, its just natural black, like a spindle, axle, stem bolts, etc. So aslong as you keep it oiled and maintained, it will always be black.

they do, you just have to use that spacer that comes with the dsg guard.

Of course you HAVE TO use the spacer/insert that comes with the plastic DSG. I didn't use it the first time and literally kept tightening and made a huge indent in the damn guard.

Anyways, the DSG is not great at holding itself. I have to tighten my axle nuts so DAMN much and the wheel still moved even the teeniest bit, but the chain is still tight.

Lolol doing a 360 on a scooter is no more impressive than pulling up just your front end on a bike which you probably can't even do that.

I can't. I can only do peg wheelies. And it's way harder on a nice scooter because now instead of a tiny ass one this one fits me ahah
