Can someone tell me what size of chain I have on my 24" 07 NE5 and where to get links for it. I've seen all sorts of numbers that don't make much sense to me. Also what is a half link, is it like a regular link only shorter?

Thanks

Whizzer "people"chain

Hi Ren, it is Standard cruiser bike chain sized. I like Continental Chains, that sell cheap under the "KMC" brand name.

Whizzer chain is also available, a "Half Link" is a special link that allows the user to remove (or add) 1/2 inch of chain at a time instead of the normal 1" at a time . This is because there are 2 types of link in your chain, an "inner" roller type and an "outer" flat-leaf with the axles on it. A standard link change is one of each equalling one inch of chain, being 1/2 inch of wheel movement.

Whenver possible, under ANY circumstances I ALWAYS use a full link.

I think I have some 1/2's other dealers may, and Whizzer should also.

I hope this "Chain 101" helps you.

Mike
