KPV Chain Size and Length


(Xavier Claude) #1

Looking to get a chain for 100cc KPV engine. Looking to see specs for size and length.

thanks!

219 chain.

Length will depend on your particular setup and gearing. Buy a chain breaker tool if you don’t already have one.

I have an otk chassis and with my kpv I was usually at a 110 link. With that being said I have a 219 chain breaker and always just stock 114 length but end up taking off about 4-6 links.

The chain will be a #219 chain.

Typically I get 114 link chains and use a chain breaker to get them to the length I need, but it will vary from chassis to chassis. It does depend on gearing to an extent, a 78 tooth gear will need more teeth than a 70, and it is a noticeable difference.

For most karting applications, 106-110 link #219 chains is typically workable. @Aaron_Hachmeister_13’s strategy is for sure the right one. Get a long chain, then adjust for your application.
