View Full Version : O-Ring chain....what's the best

Finally going to break down and get an o-ring chain. Been using the companies conveyor chain for the last few years. I'm thinking it has a tensile strength of 4000 or something. Stretches quicker than a college freshman. I need something good. what do you guys suggest? I've got a 1988 sporty that I switch from rear shocks to struts quite a bit, depending on when the wife wants to ride. Thanks.

a 530 EK zzz
about the badest chain out there. i think they have like 11,000 pound tensile and have a stretch rating of about 1%. they are also $$$$

RK is excellent. Diamond is pretty good, But I think it is somewhat over priced. can't go wrong with RK

my preference is Tsubaki 530 o-ring chain. use 'em on all my builds. and keep 'em lubed with good ol' Chain Wax.
