    See my chain broke about a month ago and i never had the time to go get one. So when i went out searching for a chain, the first thing i went to was spooky tooth cycles and i found this Num 41 chain. I never heard of this type of chain. so i went on back to hear and i got to ask dis question.

    Dose anyone know anything about this chain? Will it just be a fit it and go ride chain? will it fit the regular sprockets teethes?

    The #41 chain will fit. A lot of guys including myself use them. The difference between the #41 and your kit (415) chain is the #41 is 1/16" wider.

    Using #41 chain will also allow you to buy master links locally. Ace Hardware carries #41 chain, master links and half-links. Its also available at Grainger, Tractor Supply and any industrial supply outlet. Can't say that for #415 which is hard to find except through motor bike places and you'll have to wait for shipping. American made #41 is also superior to the Chinese chain in so far as wear and smoothness in the rollers. Go for it.

    wow! I paid 16 dollars for 10 feet at tractor supply. Do you have a Tractor Supply there? try searching for it on the web. What island are you on? or even better what is your zip code. I can go on their site and put your zip and it will tell if any are near you.

    410 bmx bicycle chain works with some kits. I bought 2 sets of chains for $10 each,one for my motor side and one for peddal side.

    The 410 or known as 1/8" BMX didn't work on mine but works on others. It depends on the sprocket on the engine. Some are thin enough and others are not. Might be worth a shot since I am sure you can get one much cheaper than 99 cents an inch. Most bike shops have them from 7-12 bucks.

    Usually the engine kits that already come with a pull start and centrifugal clutch(called dualstart dualclutch) use a 410(bmx) chain instead of 415. You can also replace the small engine sprocket for one that does use (410)bmx chain or you can grind it down a little.

    I have been thinking about doing the grinding idea on the sprocket.

    Aloha Pinoy Boy!No, I didn't see your bike(hide ur bike, so no one steals it!). In one of your pics, I recognized the road, bike lane and the building in the background.

    Out of 26,000 members and maybe 10 motorized bikes on this island, Brian lives a couple hundred yards from me.I rode past your house last night to test and tune, then turned down by Target's....

    then my new chain BROKE! lol

    So I reinstalled my old chain. Going to the doctor, then to work in Kalihi, then to school tonight on my bike.xct2
