To determine the pitch (chain size), you’ll need to measure the distance between any consecutive rivets. The rivets are the small, round pegs/studs that hold the chain segments together. Measure from the center of the first to the center of the second.
What size chain do I need for my go kart?
What Size Chain Should I Buy ? Most go kart chains and mini bike chains have the chain size stamped directly on the chain links. #35, 40, 41, 420 and 50 chain are used on American Go Karts and Mini Bikes. An 11 or 12 tooth clutch sprocket usually indicates the use of 35 chain.
How do you determine chain size?
To measure the chain size, if you have just the sprocket, use calipers to measure between the teeth. Measure from center to center of where the chain roller would set between the teeth that will give you the pitch. Once you know the pitch you can determine what chain size you would need.
How do I know my roller chain size?
Roller Chain Identification
Most roller chain has the size stamped right into the side plates. You may see something like “40”, “C2080H” or “10B” stamped in, which the industry number that represents the chain size. Old chains will most likely need to be cleaned in order to see the size.
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.
Will 40 chain fit 420 sprocket?
The Mechtician said: The pitch will be the same but a 420 motorcycle chain is narrower than an ANSI 40 or 41 chain, so no it won’t fit.
Is 40 and 420 chain the same?
Active Member. 420 chain is stronger than 41, it has larger pins, the 40 is a little wider, same pin size as 420.
What are chain sizes?
|Size||Pitch||Maximum Roller Diameter|
|50||0.625 in (15.88 mm)||0.400 in (10.16 mm)|
|60||0.750 in (19.05 mm)||0.469 in (11.91 mm)|
|80||1.000 in (25.40 mm)||0.625 in (15.88 mm)|
|100||1.250 in (31.75 mm)||0.750 in (19.05 mm)|
What size is 35 chain?
#35 Chain Dimensions
|Size||Pitch (P)||Bushing Width (W)|
What size is a 420 chain?
How can you tell the difference between a 35 and 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.
What’s the difference between 420 and 428 chain?
A 428 is a bit stronger than a 420 (like for like). The 428 is thicker and pins are the same length apart but the rollers are a different diameter so one size chain won’t fit on another type sprocket.
