Just thought I'd let everyone know to check the Primary Drive Chain. I just removed the Primary cover to replace my chain as some on the forum here have had issues. When I removed it and started inspecting things I found some pieces of roller near the Tensioner. Also noted Tensioner was Extended a fair way out. Removed the Chain and inspected and guess what found where the pieces belonged.
Replaced the Primary Chain with a Renolds Item.

Glad I had found this before it became a serious problem. Phew.

Good save. RE ought to recall these and replace All UCE primary chains. And reimburse those of us that have done it preemptively. As if that will ever happen.
