Hey all, picked up a brand new one recently, and coming from a 2010 Red bar, the chicken loop feels ridiculously large. Cant quite locate a mini version, and am not quite ready to start hacking this one up. Anyone have a source or compatibility from other versions? Thanks!
Just a heads up: At some point (2014?) Best changed the design of the RP/GP QR chickenloop that is not easy to tell externally. When you have the QR released, is the metal ring on the end of the open chickenloop round or square? Square is the newer design (V3?), round is the older design (V2?). They cannot be mixed, so just check to see which you have.
Just as a heads up if you find a place that sells parts. I bought one a few months ago but think it was from Best direct. Will go digging through my transactions later today.
As an aside, I think it should be fairly easy to modify, the "fixed" end of the chickenloop is just a loop in the line that wraps around a stud in the QR. All you need to do is trim the plastic tube and shorten the loop. But I understand the desire to have a spare handy. Good luck.
My friend just cut his down, it's just a matter of making the rope smaller and cutting the plastic... like Sun said.
I actually like the big chicken loop, seems perfect length when sheeted in fully, though had a hard time working on bar spin kiteloop but my steering line got shorter with time so I made bar throw a bit smaller (which is huge on GP bar) so now it's perfect.
