    I would like to get some opinions on what the best O-Ring chain brand is? I am going to need a new chain once I start riding everyday again this year and I think I am going to go with the O-Ring style so I can hopefully get a longer life out of it.



    My current sprocket setup it 15/50 so I think I need either the 122 or 124 chain length but I am concidering the 15/47 sprocket setup and would like to get some opinions on this too. I know it has been asked before but I would like to know how some of the street riders on here like it. I ride 98% street and would like to quiet my ride down at top speed but I am not sure how sluggish it will make it in the lower gears.



    Any advice and input is appreciated.

    Any gearing up helps street riding IME.

    If your in Orange then there are hills. The 15/47 will be too tall unless your light in weight. I went with 15/50. Gained some topend with little loss of lowend. Also your close to RT33 that goes to Skyline Drive. Lucky Dog!!

    Here's a handy sprocket, gearing ratio chart.

    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Are you sure you have the 15t front sprocket?????????? If it's a 14 then the chain will be 122links for the 14/50 and 120 links for the 14/47......... Just wondering. (o; OMM.

    Well I'm thinking stock 122 might work............ Just adding one tooth in the front shouldn't make that much difference on the chain, gearing will be close to the 14/47. OMM.
