Question Rear wheel spacer (2014) needs replacement

After 21000 km my front drive chain sprocket is well an truly worn out. The rear sprocket is also worn but not so much. However, the wheel spacers are both worn more that is accepatble. Any good source for buying new ones?

To have chain and sprockets wear out in 21,00k you must be riding in a terrible environment. My first set lasted nearly 50,000k. Always replace them all as a set.

Are you sure the spacers are worn out?

Sandstorm,

Are the sprockets worn evenly or have they been worn more on one side than the other? If they are worn more on one side than teh other please post pics. I have not seen any evidence of the Gen 1 chane alignment problem on Gen 2 DL1000s, but you have me wondering.

Regarding your question, teh parts warehouse prices on wheel spacers are not overly expensive. Figure $20 or so per spacer.

If you think the spacer is worn, which I can't see, what about the bearings? The spacer is clamped stationary by the axle so the only way there can be wear is if the adjacent bearing is causing it. Do the bearings turn without any notchiness and are the dust seals ok?

Do you use any chain lube or why would the front sprocket be "worn out" at 21k km? Show us some pictures so we can appreciate what you are seeing.

How does a spacer wear out? It doesn't move. You need to lube your chain more, I just replaced my chain and sprockets at 30,000 miles or 48,000 km and they could have gone way farther but I wanted to change the gearing.

Spacers could wear out. Many have a seal surface on them. Should that get grooved or pitted the seal won't hold. Needs replaced.

But at what amounts to 12,000 miles there should not be that kind of wear on the spacers.

My seal wore out a very long time ago (around 50k miles). I am pretty sure that is what caused my sprocket carrier bearing to fail. After installing a double-sealed replacement bearing, I haven't had any issues - ymmv.

The pictured spacer looks fine to me. I would wipe it off, reinstall it with some clean grease and see how it goes.

Uh-oh. Your right. His hands are way to clean. Now I'm wondering if the website has been hacked somehow.
