my buddy has 6 or 7 of these on the shelf. I can get one for 150.oo CDN. They have a tensil strength of 10,000. A wear factor of 1000.

RK an' DID are the 2 manufacture's that supply the big 4, an' Beemer's etc etc...with factory chain.

My question is: does any 1 have first hand knowledge of these chains. The LFO is supposed to have been injected with a serious lubricant. The company states long long chain life. X ring technology. yadda yadda ya.

I'm going back to stock sprog's 17-40. So, I'll be unzipping the 16-42 set-up thats presently on the Smurf Machine.

More importantly, any first hand knowledge of the RK LFO XW RING chain. Enlighten me.

hav a well lubed 1...RSD

So far so good! Switched this last time to the RK 530 setup.... Still pretty early to tell, but I haven't had any problems as of late. Had a buddy do this a year ago, still running strong. Decided to save some money and give it a try.
