## Is 41 chain the same as 410?

A 410 chain is a bicycle chain that’s slightly beefed up. The #41 chain works great, your not ever going to snap it. The big problem with a #41 chain is the width. They are fat can rub on wide rear tires and barley fit in the stock chain tensioner pulley.

## Is 420 chain the same as 35?

DIFFERENT CHAIN SIZES- explained #35 Chain will ONLY fit #35 sprockets, no questions asked. #41 Chain will only fit #41 sprockets, #40 sprockets are too wide. #420 will fit on #41 sprockets, its just a little bit heavier duty with a larger pin.

## Is 40 41 and 420 chain the same?

#40 Chain will fit on #41 sprockets, it is basically the same as #420, except it has wider Rollers, it is considerably heavier duty than #41.

## What are the different bicycle chain Sizes?

Chains come in 3⁄32 in (2.4 mm), 1⁄8 in (3.2 mm), 5⁄32 in (4.0 mm), or 3⁄16 in (4.8 mm) roller widths, the internal width between the inner plates. 1⁄8 in (3.2 mm) chains are typically used on bikes with a single rear sprocket: those with coaster brakes, hub gears, fixed gears such as track bicycles, or BMX bikes.

## Will a 40 chain fit a 420 sprocket?

They are the same pitch (1/2″) but 420 is narrower used primarily on the thin, lightweight kart sprockets. 40 chain will run on a 420 sprocket but I think it will have way too much side to side play.

## What’s the difference between 420 and 428 chain?

The primary difference between 420 and 428 is the pitch of the links. A 130 link 428 chain will be longer (and generally speaking, heavier-duty) than a 130 link 420 chain.

## What does a 520 chain mean?

* Motorcycle chains are what transfer power to the rear wheel. * Performing a 520 conversion is a way to use a lighter chain on a bike equipped with a heavier stock chain. * The lighter chain reduces bike weight and allows for more efficient power generation by the motor.

## Which is bigger 35 or 40 chain?

The main difference between the 35 and the 40 chain is that one is rollerless and the other has rollers. The two chains also have different pitches and diameters, which will limit their interoperability. Additionally, the 40 chain is rated for a significantly higher tensile strength and working load than the 35.

## Will a 428 sprocket fit a 420 chain?

You can probably use the 428 chain on the 420 sprockets. Not the other way around though. 428 sprockets are too thick for a 420 chain.

## What does a 3/32 chain mean?

3/32″ chain is used on derailer equipped bicycles that have more than 3 speeds.

## How do I know my chain size?

Begin by counting the number of teeth on the largest front sprocket and largest rear. These numbers are often printed right on the sprockets and cogs. Next, measure the distance between the middle of the crank bolt to the rear axle. This is also the chain stay length.

## How do I know what size chain I need for my bike?

For measuring the length of bicycle chain size, you need to do the following: Count the number of teeth on the biggest front sprocket and largest rear sprocket. You can find the numbers printed on the sprockets too. Next, you need to measure the distance between the crank bolt’s rear axle and midpoint.
