Renold was the original supplier of drive chains to the British motorcycle industry and is widely considered the brand by which all other chain manufacturers are measured by. Choose the Renold brand when nothing but the finest quality and authenticity will do for your vintage British motorcycle restoration.
The UK-made Renold 5/8 x 3/8 pitch chain is supplied in a 113 link condition, making it ideal for use on motorcycles originally fitted with odd-length chains. Can be shortened to fit applications calling for 103, 105, 107, and 109 links with the provided connecting link. Exclusive thin-wall plates allow for enhanced clearance with chainguards and engine cases without sacrificing strength. For non- O ring applications.
The final drive chain delivers the power from the engine and transmission to the rear drive sprocket. The condition of the chain and sprockets should be monitored frequently to prevent failure while in service. Frequent cleaning and proper lubrication will prolong the life of the chain and sprockets.
The old chain can be disconnected at the joining link and connected to the replacement chain to pull it through the tunnel behind the primary chaincase, riding on the countershaft sprocket. Once the replacement chain emerges, the connecting link can be removed and the old chain is discarded. The new replacement chain can then be connected after wrapping the remainder over the rear sprocket, with the chain adjusters and spindle nuts loose. Final adjustment of the chain tension is made in accordance with the factory workshop manual.
