Default Re: Drive train

Great news gphil, glad you're up and running without issue.

It could be that the #41 chain being as wide as it is wa catching a bit on the housing cover over the drive sprocket, I know that even with running the KMC415H chain it hits and rubs a little in there, some people do a bit of grinding in the area where you will see it has been rubbing when the cover is removed so that is stops hitting in that area, since its aluminum and has never caused me any problem I just let the chain wher it down in that area the way it wants and dont worry about it, not the best method I know but it has never created any issues for me, the #41 chain is even bigger and wider than the 415H chain so it could be that the chain was binding just a little as it passed an area on the cover that it was rubbing on, in a short time that area will be worn down and thn it wont bind there anymore if that is what happened.

Ride safe and enjoy...

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
