The kit chain has been a source of problems for some with twists and binding links. A good quality #41 chain will take care of that.
BTY Tom is this the age or trickery part?
I totally agree with Tom, #41 chain works very well with mt sprocket on my back wheel. it is a kit sprocket. Grainger has some quality chain better than TSC sells but I don't know how much more costly it is. Probably the Chinese chain will serve you well if you keep it lubricated. I do not have to pay shipping with Grainger because I have Farm Bureau insurance and they have a deal with Grainger something like a company account. I can order a $2.00 part and they ship it free.
