Also asked, what is the pitch of a chain?
The pitch of a chain refers to the distance between its drive links. It is determined by measuring the distance between any three consecutive drive links and dividing by two. Example: 3/4" divided by 2 = 3/8". Sometimes pitch is expressed as a fraction: 3/8" and sometimes it is expressed as a decimal: .
Also Know, what is the difference between a 520 and 525 chain? As noted, the difference between a 525 and 520 chain (100 links) is about 3/10 lb. Correct, but if you switch to a rear aluminum sprocket, weight savings are much better. As i stated previously, doing the conversion (with aluminum rear) saved me 1 pound (well, 15 ounces to be exact).
Hereof, how do I know what motorcycle chain to buy?
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.
