The MGN12 Linear Rail Precision Motion Kit is a complete Y-axis upgrade for the Creality Ender 3 S1 and Ender 3 S1 Pro.
Linear rails (or guides) are the preferred choice for many industrial applications. Manufactured to tight tolerances, they offer superior performance with greater precision and accuracy. The rigid stainless steel rails allow little to no flex, and with proper lubrication, the 3/32" ball bearings are remarkably smooth and quiet.
To introduce rail compatibility on the S1 series, we've developed a complete Y axis upgrade which replaces the original closed face extrusion. At the core of this product is our custom Baux Bar, a 2mm thick aluminum beam which supports multiple linear rail configurations. Factory anodized black, it seamlessly matches the S1's aesthetic and appears as though it were stock part.
MGN12 Linear Rail Precision Motion Kit for S1 / Pro - Assembly Guide
The MGN12 Precision Motion Kit offers two possible linear rail configurations.
The standard choice is a single MGN12 linear rail, centered on the Baux Bar for equal weight distribution. This provides excellent stability and maximum performance, where minimal preload allows the bed assembly to move freely. This is our recommendation for most S1 and S1 Pro 3D printers.
Adding a second MGN12 linear rail is optional (not included). Mounted in parallel, the weight is distributed across a wider distance for even greater stability, ideal for heavier cast aluminum heated beds and / or glass plates. However, dual rails require precise alignment or they can introduce binding and impede the movement.

I purchased a Y axis linear rail and carriage. The instructions were super easy to follow and it was easy to install. Both products were machined very well and run flawlessly. I will purchase from this company again for sure!
Not many choices out there for the S1 rails right now but I am happy I came across this company. Not only is this not just a rail kit it's a whole new setup. Super smooth on the dual rails and super quite. Perfect upgrade if you are running a Klipper setup. Can't imagine it would hurt on a marline either. Not only is thr product great but they stand by their products and customer support is superb. You won't regret your purchase. Looking forward to the x rail kit in the works!!! Thanks guys.
I just installed my kit three days ago and have run several prints now. First, I'll say that all the Gulfcoast parts including the baux bar and y-carriage have flawless machining and precision, along with a beautiful finish. I gave everything a good look over with my starrett machinists square and it is all very flat and square. The parts installed easily and cleanly onto my ender s1 pro with no issues. My one big complaint though is the wish.com grade linear rails that came with it. They are gritty, the machining is rough, and I don't anticipate them lasting very long. I already have some Hiwin rails on order (I also bought the s1 x-axis kit which also came with a horrible linear rail) to replace the scrap steel rails. If you buy this kit do yourself a favor and order some proper rails somewhere else. If Gulfcoast sold good quality rails with their kits as an optional upgrade I would have gladly paid for it.
