Just a quick update:
I got a sram single speed chain and it fits perfectly as suggested by Whizzer Nut. It's lighter and thinner which is what I wanted. Big bonus is their master link system. It has no spring clip, you bend the chain on the master studs to get the master plate to fit. It's easy and seems bombproof.

I fixed it with rtf as suggested on a thread here and dropped Chris a note to tell him what was up. The motor was almost a year old at this point and he didn't hesitate to exchange it for a new one. I'll admit it was a pain, but once the problem became clear he really did come through. .
That is pretty amazing. Way to go Chris!
