RANS Rocket/VRex Rear Idler Kit

16 reviews
SKU: IDK176.1

The RANS Rocket/VRex Rear Idler Kit is a serious upgrade to your stock system. With custom idler brackets and a Power Idler, you won't believe how much smoother and quieter your bike will be until you ride with this kit. Easy to install, easier to enjoy! Works well with the RANS Rocket/VRex Rear Idler Kit.

Note: On older bikes with the square seat channel, you may need to trim the excess length from the right side seat clamp L bracket. Since our idlers are larger for greater efficiency, this raises the chainline and may produce rubbing of the chain on the right side L bracket unless it is shortened. Rad-Loc seat clamp bikes are OK.

VRex rear Idler

Easy purchase and fits my vrex just fine. Waiting for a new rear derailleur before I can actually ride the bike

V-Rex Rear Idler Kit

This was for an early “24” rear wheeled V-Rex, and the bolts attaching the unit to the frame were a bit large, but I was able to find what I needed at a local store, and as with everything else you folks make, it works beautifully. This is actually the second of these I’ve used. I had a newer V-Rex for a time. As Rans is now out of business and no longer stocking parts, you’re the only game in town.

Power Idler

This idler is a great addition to my V-rex. It is smoother and quieter than the original idler.

20 year old VRex

The old idler was worn through. This was an easy repair and looks great.

Easy to install

It was pretty easy to install and came with all the hardware needed. I think I gained 1mph using this vs the stock chain idler (a rubber roller).
