    I completely agree, but 50-50 is picky with his chain adjusters.

    Those don't look great and certainly not what I'd call simple like stock adjusters on a lot of big bikes. I may give them a shot though.

    No, I just want a quality piece not some half-ass engineering.

    The highest listed tensile strength I could find is the RK GB420MXZ4. If you make near stock power and don't clutch up wheelies all the time a good sealed chain might be better. If you're stretching the limits of what a 420 chain can handle you want maximum tensile strength.

    Noob, that is a good find. Bitchen find even.

    When I made my recommendation of the Pro Taper chain, I based my findings on the 520 chain I use on my MX machines. So I threw a Pro Taper chain on the Grom without a through check on what is out there. I just automatically thought that the 420 offering would be "zoot capri" like the 520. I see both Pro Taper & RK MXZ4 series both have 8K TS for the 520. My next chain in the 420 pitch will be the MXZ4.

    Although, on the RK website, it clearly states that this chain is not for street use. I will use it anyway on my relatively "slow" Grom.

    I'm going to convert to 428 and get the X-ring chain. My chain is wearing out fast but I think I had it too tight a couple times.

    I considered the GV420MRU, but decided to go with BL420MRU as I rarely see them anywhere... wanted something a little different

    U-ring? So X-ring is no longer the latest and greatest?
