I would think that if the sprockets were modified you could use regular bike chain. It should be able to handle the horsepower.

The rear tire and fender are wide on this bike, I need more clearance without making major modifications.

I'm using BMX YBN 1/2-1/8 half links. It's definitely a lot lighter, and I think even more durable. It broke my motorcycle chain breakers. Toughest chain I have encountered.

It has'nt break, and I don't think it stretches that much...
Regardless if it's left or wrong, the opposite is always right.
