Heard back - the company that makes the cam chains is called Borg Warner. From what little I found online they're very reputable and a good aftermarket option. Anyone got any first hand real world feedback on them?

Most bikes of the era use a 219 chain but that size comes in a number of different "strengths". Some use thicker side plates and so have longer pins. Some use thicker pins, so if you buy a link, make sure it is the right size. And if you can find one with a clip and not rivet, it's OK to use it.

You are going this far, why not go the whole way?
Yeah, LOL it up mate. You're not the only one. ;Dirk miller said:You pulled this thing apart to fix a stripped spark plug thread? I just do it while it's all together. LOL
ha ha ha, Oh I been there so many times......but no doubt there will be plenty of other things for me to check and empty my wallet onto yet again.
Yeah no that's pretty much the sum of it. Any or all of the above are almost guaranteed - but if I can get in and out with only one of those things then I'm ok with that 8)Popeye SXM said:.... what is the werst that can happen?, apart from the cut fingers lost money and extreme frustration?
