I'm REAL new to chains....could we get an edit on this sticky? Some [brackets] or |walls| or something to break this info up....maybe a key or some labels so a real noob like myself can study it. It looks like solid info, but I can't make heads or tails of it....

The chains that will work on a m/b are 410,415,415h,41. All being the same except the width between the sides, 410 being the narrowest at 1/8 inch. With 41 having the highest breaking point of standard chains.

Compare the kit chain with the chain on your bike, if it is the same width it is 410 if it is wider it is 415. 41 does not come in Chinese kits.

so, the 415 is not the same as 41, with bushings instead of rollers? 3/16 width & 1/4 for the 41? # 420 specs the same and higher strength. I want some dependability, as my "kit" chain only lasted 500 miles or so... Thanx for the chart! numbers make the difference!!!

This is the chain I use on my bikes with no issues, I am sure that you would have a grainger close to you. If they will not sell to you let me know and I can set it up for you to purchase.

Buy a pack of master links too. This item is 10 feet of chain so you will have enough for your next build.

This may make the chart more user friendly.

Bike chains are not shown this explains what the chart measurements are.

I am planing to buy motorcycle sprocket for my build, it is used with #420 or #428 chain. Which one should I choose so that the chain fits with regular bicycle sprocket?

The bicycle sprocket uses .141 diameter barrels in the chain, I dont know if 420 or 428 will work. From what i have tried the 410, 415, 415h, and 41 are all that wil work on my ht engines. This is on the engine side sprocket. The pedal side chain on a single speed bike like mine is a 410.
