## How do I know what size Go Kart chain I need?

Go-kart chain numbers take the first letter from the pitch. And the last 1 or 2 digits from the roller width. For example a 420 chain has a pitch of 4/8-inches and a 520 chain has a pitch of 5/8-inches.

## What is the difference between 35 and 41 chain?

#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 chain the same as 420?

Active Member. 420 chain is stronger than 41, it has larger pins, the 40 is a little wider, same pin size as 420.

## What is the difference between 40 and 41 chain?

#40 will be the beefiest chain in this class. This will help with thicker sprockets since there is more room between the side plates. #41 will look just like the # 420 chain, but will stand shorter.

## How do I know my 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.

## 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.

## Is 35 or 40 chain bigger?

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 does a 40 chain mean?

The chain in use on modern bicycles has a 1⁄2 inch (12.7 mm) pitch, which is the distance from one pin center to another, ANSI standard #40, where the 4 in “#40” indicates the pitch of the chain in eighths of an inch; and is standard 606 (metric) #8, where the 8 indicates the pitch in sixteenths of an inch.

## Will a 40 chain fit a 35 sprocket?

No. A #40 chain is 1/2″ between the pins and 5/16″ inside width. A #35 is 3/8″ between the pins and 3/16″ inside width. There is no way it will work.

## 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.

## How strong is 35 chain?

The Premier Series 35 simplex chain offers an industry-leading high tensile strength of 2,430 LBS and a 560 LBS maximum working load.
