Can I get those orange rollers on SRP's chain guides in other colors, like black maybe? Also where? Thanks in advance for any help.

you can dye the orange rollers. I did and it looks killer. All u need is an old pot or pan, and a $2 box of black Rit fabric dye. Simply remove all of the hardware from the roller clean it good, and put the dye in some boiling water (dont need a whole lot) and drop in the roller and let it simmer for a while. I let mine go for a couple hrs. then dump out into the sink and and rinse in cold water. I think that you can dunk it in vinegar to help set the dye, but that might just be for fabric. Keep in mind that any "black" dye is going to be a derivative of like purple or brown, so you might see some of those hues come out. But really it looks killer. One tip, if you stain the sink or pan with the dye, just use a little bleach to get it out. That way you dont have to scrub anything, just bleach it away. give this a shot it really does work and i know a few other people on the board have done it to their MRP's too

Yeah,

If you dont want to go the Die route. Then Call White Brothers. They
bought MRP. Just ask for a set in Black. Should be no more than 10 bucks.
When I was at Sea Otter,I bought 8 sets and paid 56 Bucks. Peace.
