Is it correct to say that our 2 stroke engines have a 415 chain and it is the same pitch as a regular bike chain just bigger, and that there is one at tractor supply place. and if so which chain is it?
I did change over to the #41 chain, and it is wider (loose from side to side). I have riden approx 50 miles so far with no problems. It seems to be a better quality, and with the tensioner I installed much quieter.
Most bike shops can order a KMC "freestyle" extreme 1/2 x 3/16 that is made for BMX bikes.
It'a a "K415H and is colored silver. Only thing is that it comes with 98 links and is about four links short.(for my bike)
Can't wait for the report on the chain! Bike guyjoe sounds like you are trying to say that a small engine shop will have a chain that will fit our bikes and that it is the #41 but there maybe one even better and it is a #42 hope that is what you are saying. Can't wait.
i am also using a #41 from tsc and have alot of miles on it and very happy with it. plus i can get 2 plus chains out of it for 14 bucks and also master links are readily available. most motorized bicycle sprockets wabble just a little on the spokes and i think the little bit of movement allowed is actually a good thing
I'll report back with my findings later today...the #42 should fit PERFECTLY since it's 3/16" the same as the 415. I have been meaning to do this since last year, but folks started using #41 and seemed happy, but I just have to know!
