I was looking at those because it was convenient and reading the lable "Not for motor drive" I wanted to test it but hesitated. Next day I'm getting a exhaust on the honda and next door theres a garage door shop, BING, I believe he was interested in the project enough to help me out, didnt even know what to charge. Charges me 1.50 a foot for 5' (turns out pacing it off gave 7' OAL). Trying to be helpfull he throws in a 1/2 link (doesn't fit BGF heavy chain or 1/2X!/8 coaster brake chain and I can't throw anything that may be usefull out, I'm gonna suffocate in this rat nest. Any how no-name chain yet to be tested.
BTW one failure is not good science. Get 5 more and report back to us with your survival ratio LOL. Peace
