Another chain question.....sorry
« on: February 18, 2013, 11:55:31 PM »
I'm looking to replace the stock chain on my C5 with an X or O ring chain and was wondering if these chains are available with a clip type master link rather than the riveted type. All my other bikes are vintage and have clip type master links and with the low power output of my RE would just as soon have another clip type. Probably looking to buy a chain on line. I need a 530 101 link.....correct.

Sure you can get them with a clip. You need 102 links. No such thing as 101 links in the aftermarket.

The Tsubaki O-ring chains come with clip links and work well.  I put mine on when I changed the front sprocket.  It's the best upgrade I've made so far.
