    Thought I read about this in a post, but searched for it and can not find it.

    I am pretty sure I have read that a stock happytime kit from any vendor can be used out of the box with a #41 chain, is this true?

    Can you use #41 chain on a standard HT engine sprocket?

    41 chain does NOT come in different colors.....
    It is very industrial chain that Ace hardware stocks and
    is used for chain on automatic gate openers, etc

    It has 1/4" between the link plates as opposed to 3/16" in the 415
    chain that comes with the 2 stroke kits

    My new EZ Motorbike kit came with a 41 chain and the front sprocket
    teeth are a hair under 1/4" wide.

    It will work on a 2 stroke kit IF your chain is pulling to the outside
    otherwise it is wide enough to rub on the motor housing under the
    front sprocket.
    I would not use it for a 2 stroke as there are much better choices
