    I have what I believe is the #415 chain - I need a half (offset) link.
    (always a time thing - :smile: )

    Searched fleebay - Nogo. Matter of fact, I didn't even see but perhaps two whole chains for sale.

    Will a #41 lawnmower link work?

    I would like to have spares and I am certain that others NEED or will need the same.

    Thanks in advance,

    OK - sorry for the prior urgency.
    "I walk fast - I talk fast - I work fast"
    (well, sometimes I don't work all that fast - :smile: )

    Three stops and 90 minutes later - Bike Shop had only 1ea. of the master and offset (half) links in stock; bought both.

    They buttreamed me for $4 each.

    Oh well, I am back onto the Typhoon assembly.

    Half link was bogus as are many parts in this kit.

    It bound the chain at the front sprocket.
    Another custom grind-job to create a relief and is permissible.
    Chain is of poor quality too.

    I somewhat inherited (bought an aborted project cheap) this bike and the kit.

    I can and will state for all others reading that there is a huge difference in kits available. This is NOT a dax kit. And, it shows in almost every part.
    Some parts are literally useless, unfortunately. Like the clutch handle for one and the idler/tensioner for another.

    I'll post a pic soon.

    As per usual..... Thanks for all the help and feedback on this site.

    It is greatly appreciated.
