We stock two types of drive chains for the Kawasaki 900's and 1000's: O-Ring type and non O-ring.....
And we're often asked...."What's the difference between them"......
Well the difference in price is certainly obvious, but beyond that.....

The basic materials used in these two chains are nearly identical.....Very strong stuff.....
In the O-ring type chain at the top, a sealing o-ring is in place between each chain
roller and the sideplate. This seal keeps the initial lubrication within the roller intact
longer, but more importantly it keeps out road grit and moisture from penetrating
the chain rollers. As a result, the o-ring chain needs less cleaning, less external lubing,
and will be more forgiving regarding maintenance......An o-ring chain will
outlast a non o-ring chain by 50 to 100 percent, and require less attention doing it.
For models like the LTD's that did'nt come with a centerstand, making chain service
more difficult, the o-ring chains are of even greater benefit.....

For all 1973 thru 1980 900 & 1000 models ....... Tired of looking at those corroded chain adjusters?
