I had the same problem in my Slime Insurgent... I instaled a pair of small washers between the two plates... and voila!!! no more rubbing!!

It’s not rubbing for me, but chain slap in bumpy stuff.

Sugru is the answer.....put some on the chain stay and the noise goes away. Picture of my Wreckoning


F’ing brilliant! I’ll do that.

Can't say I came up with it. Bloke on the Evil Bikes FB Group suggested it and it bloody works!!

Anyone developed play in the dogbone links? I've got a tiny amount of play that I can feel when I pick up the rear of the bike using the saddle. Lifting it while holding each of the linkages in turn, it seems like it might be from the dogbone. Being from the antipodes, it will cost me around $120 to replace them - which is eye wateringly expensive for 4 pieces of forged (or cnc'd) metal.

My bottom shock bolt often comes loose on my Offering, and has this same effect. This would be an easier fix if this is the case.

Shock bolts are also the culprit for me

Not that unfortunately. I've torqued everything to spec in the linkages and rear wheel and I still get the slight movement.

Yeah that's quite a common thing

Are you sure the play on your dogbones isn't just play on your bearings?

check your shock bushings, my insurgent used to eat em regularly, when they would wear out, the shock would move side to side and do this clunk sound, and eventually it would side load my shock and scratch the shit out of the shaft the IFP rides on. I was rebuilding/replacing shocks 2x a season. sold that pig and got a calling. the trunnion mount is the way to go on these evils. zero play, and much more supple feeling. Check your bushings and shock hardware for any signs of wear.

Has anyone found a way to give the chain some more clearance on the chain stay? Currently running eagle and a 32t ring on my ‘19 Insurgent and would like to run a 30t ring. Only issue is that in my hardest gear the chain is probably 3/4 mm away from the chain stay protector.

Cheers. Stipped it down and I think you're right. Bearing swap time.

I was using a 32t with the E13 cassette, so a 9t in highest gear. It pretty much sat on the stay protector. I assumed it rubbed most of the time kept an eye out for damage - which didn't come. Never had an issue.

Might try to track down an idler pulley to reduce chain slap
