Strengths:    review for Fusion version. same as system 3 except for the lexan bash ring.
mounts directly to frame with ISIS mounting holes. thick, but lightweight lexan bashring. smooth and silent bright orange rollers. quality fit and finish all around. fits the Demo 9 Pro with no modification, unlike the e13. most importantly, keeps my chain on.


Weaknesses:    not a wide enough assortment of spacers for my set up. I had to track down some washers to space it out correctly. Also, the instructions are total crap. One page that doesn't go into any kind of detail. you'll be fine if you're handy and patient. If not find someone who's done it before for some tips.

Bottom Line:   
4 chilis for 2 reasons unrelated to the product quality. 1. lack of detailed instructions. It's a relatively easy install, but deserves more than what they provide. 2. few spacing options for the bashring. It comes with one set of wide and one set of paper thin spacers. A couple more sizes to dial it in perfectly would have been really nice. I had to run to stop working and run to Home Depot to buy a washer that would space it just right.

Value rating of 3 because $130 is a lot for what's included in the kit. It is a high quality product, but can't be more than $30 worth of material including fabrication. With that said, considering the other options, I would buy the MRP all over again.

MRP System 3 and SB-3 compatibilty problem with Saint and SLX cranks

Why is the System 3 and SB-3 with the guide ring not recommended for the newer Saint and SLX cranksets, according the MRP website? Is it due to the different spider? Or are there any interference on the guide ring and the crankarm itself? I am looking at them as a high-quality replacement for my ... Read More »

MRP System 3 and SB-3

Any guys using the System 3 or SB-3? I am curious at MRP chain guides, and most of my buddies are running e13s. Strangely, I find MRP more expensive than e13 here in the far side of the Pacific. Is it the same in say, the US or Europe?Read More »

MRP G2/ MRP System 3 comparison

Hi guys, I'm in need of a new chain guide, I got sick of my e-13 SRS's performance due to its poor mud shedding capabilities and it was loud. I already own a gamut P20 but want to give MRP a try. I can get a brand new System 3 for the same price I could get a lightly used G2, so, what's your opinion ... Read More »
