New rear Sprocket issue
just went up to a 42 tooth rear sprocket on my 04 SP2 from a 40.
After setting chain slack at 25mm (existing old chain) I realise that when the chain break link came around on the rear sprocket that the slack in the chain would dissapear... After measuring the internal length of the normal links in the chain with a vernier (6mm) I came to realise that the chain break link was measuring out to 8mm in length. Obviously I have ordered a new chain......
Has anyone had a similar issue? It seems strange to me that one link would measure 30% longer internally than the rest of the links? Are EK chains reputable. Any suggestions in chain?
