The Motorcycle drive chain is an essential part of the drive train to transmit the motor power to the back wheel.
Stunt performance need fine control during sudden start, sudden brutal stop, wheelie through accelerator work.
In order to control, it is necessary to accurately transmit the power of the engine to the rear tires.
Therefore, a Light but Strong and Rigid Chain is needed for Stunt Performance.
If a chain elongate during Stunt Performance, the Respond will be delayed, thus Difficult to Elongate chain is an important point.
Chain lubrification is important as well, Unlubricated ot not properly lubroicated chains will significantly decrease performance and increase chain and sprocket wear.
