Chain Help

Recommended Posts

Im trying to figure out if i should get an o ring, x ring, or normal chain, Im just not seeing the benifits of an o or x ring and they cost a lot more. Are there any good normal chains that will last?

Dave from MX Time told me that the Regina chains are pretty good. LINK So far I haven't had any problems.

I would use needle nose pilers before I got some good ones at NAPA. If you ever get some don't get the cheap $15-20 ones, the tips will end up bending. :thumbsup:

Mine have the hex head bolt with a nut on the other side are yours not the same? If they are you should be using a wrench on the nut and not the bolt.

yeah their hex on one side and 12mm nuts on the other. I dont have a 12mm wrench so im just using the sockets i just cant break the seal they have on the sprocket. any idea? i hosed it with wd40 but no luck. My dad is gonna try later but i have no clue.

Easy fix? Go buy a 12mm wrench. You say you're using a socket? Are you coming in from the back (through the spokes), if so, and you can't break them loose. Try putting a pipe over your ratchet for more leverage.

Edit:

Don't try to loosen them with the bolt.

Get the DID vt2 enduro racing chain, lighter narrower and less rolling resistance than an O ring, or X ring. But will outlast a non oring many times over = cost effective)

I've ran many Regina chains. They are awesome! BUT they will cost more. I have been trying the rocky mtn chains both o ring and non o ring. 450 to a 250f... so I didnt think I needed an o ring. we'll see this weekend!

Well in the 2nd post I, like carolina450, said Regina chains but then we got off topic.:lol::banana:

I like the regina's as well, but have seemed to settle on the DID ERT2 Gold chain. Works well. Renthals are garbage. If I get a season a full season out of one of them I'm more than happy.
