    How can you tell what chain will go with what sprocket. I purchased a 40T sprocket and a HD 415 chain. They don't match up.

    The chains used on these bikes have a 1/2 inch pitch (spacing between teeth) but the width can be different. Minibikes use a smaller pitch and electric scooters use a smaller pitch yet.
