Primary Drive X ring chains

Postby Indawoods » 10:09 pm May 30 2006

A shout out goes to rockymountainmc.com for the quality of their X ring chains.

What I noticed most is how much easier the bike pushed and the instant torque. This is due to the X ring chain being narrower than the O ring chain I was running before. It does not rub my chain guide at all so it is very quiet.

Time will tell on how long it lasts but it does spec out slightly better than the DID I was running before as far as tensile strength.

Bottom line is if you were reluctant to run a "ring" chain in the past due to concerns about rubbing or loss of power but want a pretty much maintenance free chain.... this may be the ticket for you.

Oh... and it is a handsome chain too.... Entirely Gold... not just the outer plates like some. :supz:

Thanks for the tip Inda. Could you attach a link to the chain? (I'm lazy!!)

Says they are out of stock. Thanks for buying the last one Inda! Ha!! I'll just get a bit longer one and shorten it. That is the best chain for the price I've seen in some time!!

If I would have known they were that good, I would have opted for that and avoided my DID (gold plates on outside only). I'll know next time...
