530 H Drive Chains
« on: August 17, 2014, 01:47:17 PM »
I've seen lots of posts with questions about drive chains in the forum. I have been using RK Takasago chains for decades now and never had a problem, so when the chain on my 5spd Bullet was getting a bit worn I bought a RK530 H (H= heavy duty) on e-bay with shipping for less than 30$. There is no clearance problems on my bike & in the last 1200 miles I haven't even had to adjust it once ! . I have cleaned & lubed it quite a few times. As for cleaning I use a soft rag sprayed down with WD-40 to remove the grime, then dry it with a clean rag & then use a quality chain lube . If your bike is stock or near stock (carb & exhaust mods) this inexpensive chain works great.
