My standard chain it nearing its limit and I'm ready to go for an o-ring replacement. I see them for sale from around $50 to over $150. I'm guessing the cheapest ones may be made using the lowest grade o-rings and links available. (Possibly o-rings made for non-moving applications, or heat free locations.)

There is a wide range in the middle of brands and prices. I'd like to know of any experiences you all may have with these intermediate brands. Are there any that stand out as particularly good or bad?

Thanks all.

I ended up with an RK chain, but I found that where you buy determines the price. The chain cost $120 at my local cyclegear but $50 online at bike barn. Shop around.

The only chain I've bought was an RK x-ring chain. Worked very well and was very well made.

You can buy Ag type chain at farm stores for really cheap in some motorcycle sizes. It stretches faster then hell and doesn't last but is cheap. :D










Honestly, I WOULDN'T run it on ANY motorcycle short of a 50cc dirt bike though.
