thanks,i've been looking at the local cycle gear. all they have on the shelf are oring 530 chains. no clue what a RE MAY be. actually had one guy ask "royal enfield? who makes that?"
Get rid of the stocker. Get a Tsubaki or DID.Bare
If you go to an o-ring chain on the G5 you also need to get a larger front sprocket (18t I believe) for clearance issues. The C5 can run an o-ring chain as is, already has the 18t.Scott
The C5 chains have the thinnest o-rings I have ever seen, so they are the narrowest o-ring chains I've ever seen.
