And we're often asked...."What's
the difference between them"......
Well the difference in price is certainly obvious, but
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
