Custom length chains

Post by Spokes » Sat Jul 11, 2009 12:49 pm

Being that a lot of us have made our bikes a little longer we may need to get a longer chain than normal.
Myself- I need at least 126 Links in a 530 size chain but would like to get it a little longer (just in case) 130?.
You wouldn't believe it. They come in 122 links max
There is an EK brand that have longer ones for drag racing bikes and the prices reflect that also. And I can't find a stockist close by anyway.
So........
Does anyone know where I can get longer chains from?

Or do what I did and just buy two of the same chains and extra joining links and cut and join.

Too easy and you can get them anywhere.

Don't fool yourself and keep joining links, it's dangerous practice. The joining link is the weakest link in the chain, so if you put more than one joiner you are risking breakage.
If you need chains we can supply you with how ever many links you require, high quality Japenese too!! You won't find quality chains cheaper anywhere else!!
Just thought i'd help!

I wasn't planning on joining two chains, plus, I'd be buggered if I am going to pay for two full chains just to get an extra 4 links.

Hemi.. are you an importer for EK chains?
