    Hi,



    As the title suggests, I am looking to find a decent quality O-Ring chain that doesn't require any link cutting.



    I appreciate any input,



    Thanks,



    Matt

    Hey Matt,

    I puchased a DID O-ring chain from Lytle Racing Group in Tempe, AZ via ebay. I searched high and low for the best price and Lytle was the best. I was also able to get the chain in 122-links so no cutting involved. Chain installed like a dream. Glad I did it too. It's been close to a year and I haven't made a chain adjustment yet.

    Thanks for the info. Which chain do you think would be best the 428 or the 525 D.I.D? What are others out there using?

    I just installed (10 mins ago actually) my DID 428, 15 front, 47 rear combo from Lytle. Will make a post about my 15/47 thoughts once I've ridden a while. That's assuming nothing falls apart and I survive the ride to work in the morning, lol.

    428 fits the sprockets. 525 won't.

    Take a look at the Sidewinder website. I use their chains and sprockets on all my bikes.

    Thanks for the info guys. Another question I had was if I move up to a 15 tooth front, will a 122 link chain fit? Or will I need an extra link or two on the chain? Additionally, I am uncertain of the significance of what a "master link" is and if it comes with the purchase of a new chain. Or, rather, is it something I must order separately.

    A master link joins the two ends. My purchase came with a master link, I assume they all do. Probably all clip type with this size of chain, like this:







    With my old chain, fitting the master link was easy, just assemble by hand on the chain, fit the clip with a good quality pair of pliers (open end away from direction of travel), done. My new o-ring master link turned out to be a 'semi interference fit' and I ended up buying a mini chain press to push it together, before fitting the clip:
