    I personally do not use a chain roller on my bikes, even with the XR80/SL70 swingarm and 330mm shocks, I don't feel there is a need to do so. I adjust the chain so there is 1 inch or so of slack with the bike on a stand, wheel off the ground. Even with a custom-built +4" swingarm I purchased from a member on here with 330mm shocks, I don't feel the need for a chain roller. It's really a matter of keeping it adjusted because of the tendency for any chain to stretch.
