Regina primary chains
« on: 16.01. 2013 07:56 »
Has anyone used these A10 plunger/rigid Regina primary chains are they any good? Are they on the same quality as Renold.
thanks

Chains have moved on, and information about chains gets mixed up with how they used to be, try giving "Chainman" a ring, I found him helpful and very knowledgeable. No pressure to buy but reasonable prices, even sent my chain before payment to ensure I was happy first.  Usual disclaimer, no connection with etc.

From what I understand Reynolds chain is not much good these days. I use sprockets unlimited and according to their web site Regina is one preferred.      http://www.sprocketsunlimited.com/

I wouldn't use that one, Terry.
Unless I had a Super Flash or an American triplex fitted primary.
Last time I needed duplex chain I bought a box of 10 feet for about $40 and cut to length.
I used a joining link which is supposedly not good practice but it is still running OK.
Still have enough chain to make more primaries.

every bearing shop has that chain...and always 2 kinds....
 cheap and expensive...standard 50 american duplex...  just have to either rivet it together or use a link...
 kinda funny as my shovelhead uses british standard chain...
 put a note thru if you want to go half on a box...

I wouldn't worry about the quality of Regina chains, for what its worth I have used their drive chains on japanese fours over the years and found the quality to be excellent - my Kawasaki ZZR 1100 is fitted with one and I have had 25K miles out of it so far.

i have used regina chains on my race bikes for years and the proffetional speedway riders have used them for years also,endless chains are better,regina dont make half links and usually privide soft links so you can adjust the length on drive chains.
near wolves uk,will keep riding as long as can stay upright,tribsa,tt500,2xJAP grasstrackers+jawa.gold flash.triumph metisse,and others.
