What size chain do I need for my mini bike?

What Size Chain Do I Need? 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.

Here’s our rule of thumb for chain length: 3′ of chain for a Go-Kart. 5′ of chain for a MiniBike.

All will have a 1/2″ pitch.

  1. We use the #420 chain the most out of these 3.
  2. #40 will be the beefiest chain in this class.
  3. #41 will look just like the #420 chain, but will stand shorter.

Also, will a 40 chain fit a 35 sprocket? 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.

Accordingly, what size chain do I need for my bike?

4 Answers. If you are using a bike with a derailleur the number of cogs on the rear hub will determine the chain size you will need. They are always 3/32″ chains. You can get a 5/6/7-speed, 8-speed, 9-speed, or 10-speed chains.

What size is 35 chain?

Chain standards

ASME/ANSI B29.1-2011 Roller Chain Standard Sizes
Size Pitch Maximum Roller Diameter
25 0.250 in (6.35 mm) 0.130 in (3.30 mm)
35 0.375 in (9.53 mm) 0.200 in (5.08 mm)
41 0.500 in (12.70 mm) 0.306 in (7.77 mm)

Is 420 chain the same as 41?

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. A 425 or 428 chain, however, would fit just fine. Yes, it WILL fit as the rollers are smaller although the pitch and roller width are the same. This just means that it may sit lower on the sprocket.

How do you measure chain length?

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.

What size master link do I need?

1 Answer. Bike chains come in two sizes. There’s 1/8″ chain for single speeds (bikes without a derailler) and 3/16″ which is for geared bikes with a rear derailleur. In addition you can get master links for 6/7/8 speed, or 9 speed or 10 speed or 11 speed.

At what RPM does a centrifugal clutch engage?

A clutch starts to engage around 2,000 rpm and will lock up around 2,600 rpm. Driving at full throttle gives the clutch a chance to cool down. Full throttle locks the shoes in the clutch against the drum.

What is the difference between #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 is a 520 chain?

* 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.
