So often you find that you have to include a half link, in the primary chain which is always suspect. Non "O" ring chains are becoming difficult to source too. Have the closed end of the clip facing in the direction of rotation. ( but you knew that didn't you?) Nev

Or in my case, don't use off the roll primary chain in combination with an Aussie piston known to nip up regularly...
Smaller hole in the cases for me, but same effect - rear wheel lockup and full speedway drift... Quite exciting.
