Quote from: shamelin on December 12, 2012, 08:49:37 PMMy Tsubaki Omega O-ring chain came with a master link, and if I remember correctly, it was actually packaged in the plastic that contained the chain. This leads me to believe that they all come from the factory with the master link. MC-Superstore confirmed: "The Tsubaki Omega chains do not come with master links." I don't know what to think. I'll just buy one and have a spare - it's only a few bucks...

Lol, join the club. I have a spare too.
We should all pool our spare links together and,make a whole chain for someone.
Thanks Shamelin-I've heard mixed reports about the changes in performance that the 18T brings. I'm doing it because I want to change to the o-ring chain...
I can add to your confusion while letting you in on mine. I have an E5 which is technically G5's identical twin but for paint & stickers. So its has the 17T sprocket. I replaced the worn out stock chain with the stock o-ring chain from a C5.Some say... (Top Gear voice) that it can't be done; some say it wouldn't fit.But the truth is out there (and now here too).
I recall reading that the C5 stock o-ring chain isn't any better than the stock standard chain, and it's not much of an o-ring chain. The sprocket change was perhaps required for the "better quality" aftermarket o-ring chains?
I got their big 3/4" socket set for $20.00, on sale from $25.00. It was full of big black ugly deep sockets. But it works well. A 21 pc set, it ran from 19-50MM and included a breaker bar, ratchet and extensions. Maybe they don't carry that one any more.As I recall, the sprocket nut was 46mm. I know it was smaller than 48mm.
