No...I meant 120 or a 130 link chain, I know there is a significant difference in length, I just haven't actually measured the length of what I am going to need yet. I'm thinking it will probably be 120 due to the 4" stretch in the hardtail but like I said, haven't gotten to the measuring yet.
The purpose of the post was to see if there were any brands in particular to stay away from.
And stock they are 104 links correct??? So 4 inches of extension means you'll only need the 120? I'm pretty sure I bought a 130 for my +4" swingarm, and after it was all said and done, I could have used a 120 (I think.... was a few years ago).
Not trying to hijack this thread but as I am looking at swapping sprockets and a new chain I am wondering about chain costs. On mikesxs site I see he has the Izumi High Tensile Heavy Duty chain (non o ring type) for about half the cost of the o ring type.Would a guy get twice the wear or what is the ultimate benefits? Just got done reading this. http://www.quality-cycle.com/truth_about_motorcycle_chains.htm
chains and cheap shouldn't be used in the same sentence. i wish i still had the picture of my buddies "china" chain sitting inside his cbr600 motor (broke and blew a hole into his case at 70mph). Not saying you need to buy a o'ring, but just dont skimp on chains.
I bought the DID heavy duty 530 chain listed in the article for this bobber project on e&ay for a third of what it costs elsewhere....I think itll be fine for the bit of skooting around town and to work.....just use pj1 and youll be fine..
