    I just inspected my "new improved" 415 chain and darn, I found a roller is missing from a link but the inner sleeve or bushing is still intact, is this bad for the sprockets 'cause I really dont wanna buy another chain but if I have to I will go through the trouble of replacing the link.. Thanks, Ed

    That is just exactly why I don't use the #415 (Kit Chain) and always replace it with #41 chain. I have 6 of the new #415 chains if anyone wants them. Only thing is the shipping would cost more than they are worth.

    I was fearing that oh well I will have to ride it w/o the roller until I get to work which is 40 miles away and replace the link there.. hopefully it wont do too much damage for that distance. Has anyone ridden without a roller?

    Hmmm... no PM. I'm guessing Retmachinist has decided the stock chain ain't that bad after all. :)

    USPS priority shipping is if it fits in the box it's a flat rate.

    ok guys I got one of those #41 chains, see how it goes. My motor just outputs too much power for the 416 and its only 48cc!! :) Must have did a good job running it in...
