    Hey guys, I'm a student at LSU in mechanical engineering. I joined this site mostly to try to help others from what I've learned on my first build and to hopefully get advice from others.

    My gf and I built a motorized bike about a week and a half ago (she is also a ME), and we loved it. I bought the kit from King's Bike Motors, and already I snapped the chain before the bike has even been broken in. are there any recommendations for a better chain than the stock 415 that comes with the HT's? I've got a #41 on order as a replacement because I've read elsewhere here that it's a better setup and will fit the sprockets. Anyways, glad to join this site!

    i run the 415 or a KMC 410hd chain and haven't had any problems but the #41 will be more than strong enough for a HT engine

    I always run #41 chain on all my builds. I never mess with the kit chains it saves lots of aggravation.

    I run this 415 on all my bikes, and have thousands of miles on them with no problems. A good thing about these chains is they're more narrow than the stock ones, so you get a little more tire clearance.
