looked at it.... Hmmm, well the X-ring 520MVXZ looks good, may give it
a try.... not to sure about the screw type link for every day use, but a
good choice for emergency repair...
I would be worried about this small ends grinding up some where.
I'm just back from a trip to Sweden with may KTM LC4 640 Enduro, and my
mate with his Honda XR250, who had to go the other way back to the UK,
had his chain come apart just 50 miles before home, his chain was
wrapping around the front sprocket and made a hole in the engine
case..... well he had a new O-ring chain fitted before the trip but had
it a bit tight in my opinion... not even a good chain will last longer
under tension, I'm riding my chain rather a bit on the sloppy side and
never had a fouled so far...
well the screw link may works but I would worry about waring the nipples of some where while the chain passing any hard serves...
any way use any link system that makes your live easyer, as long you have the right tools on board....
I wonder what your mate was doing all those miles and how he could have possibly missed all the warning signs a chain will give before it derails or breaks?
Running it tight on highway .....
Maintenance is the other factor. It's pretty certain your mate didn't pay much attention to his chain......
well ... he is a fat bastard for a start.... ;o) I'm allowed to call him FAT-BOY....
he was on the motorway and in a rush to get home..... but not over loaded.....
he didn't.... the last week at all.... not a single bit WD40 or grease..... and I'm pretty sure he had the cheapest ratlle-O-ring he could get...... to have some spare £ for the trip.....
we had a lot of gravel roads, some off road riding in the woods and the last two days on fast tarmac.....
steel sprockets front and back......
well thanks for your tips about how to watch the chain, will help next time....
his next bike would be a XR650 I bet....
the XR250 is an old MOD-bike from 1993 all in army green....
the work shop told him that the damage could be welded up, so he can trade it in for a bigger XR650 or keep it for sentimental reason....
