I ran a e.thirteen SRS 42T(06) on my old big hit, and transfered it to my new supreme dh, this time without the bashring and on a 36T chainring.

I've noticed theres a gap between where the chain ring is and where the actual guide ends, i think this is due to the 42t to 36t. I can't adjust the roller inwards to the chain due to it been such a tight fit on the supreme dh(hits the bolts), is this alright?

Also, will the chain still hold without the bashguard? on the LG1 guides theres a box over the top of the chain and on this there isnt, I'm sure when adverts started coming out you could transfer a LG1 to a SRS and vica versa easily, but now I can't see anything on the site. Will the chain drop? I'm looking at buying the taco.

I'll get some pictures soon to show you what I mean

Couldn't really make heads or tails of the rest of your post, but the answer to this question is a resounding NO. It may hold the chain for a few minutes in a parking lot, but you'll lose it almost immediately if when you start on rough terrain. If you want to run an e13 guide without the bashguard, you need to buy the LG-1 plastics.

How much do they cost?

I'm not great with explaining things like this, but I'll give it another shot

On my old big hit, I ran a 42T SRS system with the supercharger, I brought a Supreme DH frame a few day ago and fitted it, but using a 36T chainring instead. I'm not sure if the backplace of the guide changes size depending on which size you order, but theres a gap between the roller and the chainring(see pic). I can't adjust this due to it already been a very tight fit, will this be a problem?

you are going to need to put back on the bash guard or buy lg1 parts tree. and most likely a different back plate witch at that point you should just a get a new lg1 guide and save the ol stuff because depending on the year the new part tree my not fit. Dont buy anything but e-13 no gam****

You defenetly "need" the bashguard on that system, its part of what keeps the chain on, and if I am not mistaken you wont be able to move your roller far enough in for it to work properly with a 36t ring, I do belive the backplate you have is made for the 40 plus rings.

Either way If you want to keep running the 36 I would suggest either a New SrS or a New LG1, with comes with the Taco now!!!

The backplace has a moving system to make me move it closer to the chainring, but it rubs on the frame

One thing that works out well with the LG1 and the Commencal is that you can run the chainring in the outer position on the cranks. (this is how the bike was designed) It makes setup a snap and gives you the chainline that the bike was designed around.

Well, from there I would say talk to E13 and see what they suggest for mounting that guide with that frame, You will still need the Bashguard with that guide either way


Edit.... What DW said
