Default Re: Engine Swap, Chain Strength

Still always touting the KMC 415 INDUSTRIAL/TRIKE chain here- Once put a narrow spocket on the motor and tried to run a 410- it came derailled on the first attempt, and then I lost the woodruff key in the mess- so put the kit stuff back on just so I wouldn't have to fuss

Then I found the TRIKE chain a few months back- same 415 pitch and width, but with much more minimal plates and much better inner rollers than a kit chain- so it weighs half as much and rolls easier and quieter- you can really tell pedalling.

a slight stretch upon the first use and then with one adjustment I've been running it without a problem- got one on both builds- I think they were less than $13 shipped.
