X1 Bike chain size?

So i was told my bike used a #35 chain so i ordered it, and found out it didnt work, does any1 know the correct size might be i got my digital micrometer out and it looks like it may be #219 but some measurements are slightly off. i see they make 8mm chain with similar measurements as well.

My engine is the the regular 49cc with the 100cc oil stamped gear reducer on the side of it.

Re: X1 Bike chain size?

You need T8F 8mm chain, how many links do you need?? Do you have the old chain?? I buy more than I need and cut it to fit with a master link.

Posting a pic of the chain you have helps a ton in identifying it a lot quicker than trying to explain at times...

This is one of those times but luckily for me Ive had lots of X1's also x2's and an X3 so its a no brainer......LOL

No pocketbikes use the #35/#40 or #41 chains ever,,Theyre for oldschool type minibikes and don't interchange without mods..

To use a #35 on TF-8mm sprockets the teeth need to be altered with a dremel and a barrelsander....If you had a TF-8mm you'd know-it because it kinda resembles the links of an OEM timing chain from a car engine with oval shaped links that aren't shaped like dog bones..

X1's use a #410 bicycle type chain.......X2's use a TF-8mm

A stronger upgrade would be the #415 but not warranted in your case..

Re: X1 Bike chain size?

ill try to get a picture up tomorrow when i head to the shop, though to note what you said, the chain links are oval shaped and not like a dog bone. honeslty it would be a whole lot easier if these manufacturer just stamped the chain, almost all the other machine chain i have all have type stamped into them. yea the specs are listed per type but getting good measurements from a rusted/stretched and worn chain is not so easy.

On a side note i tried to start a build log for my 212cc project with pictures and the system gave me a message that it needed to be approved by a moderator before it could be posted that was like a week ago? any1 know if that is standard or did the website take a dump on me

Ok then..... EPR hit the nail on the head...you have a 8mm / TF-O5B chain....

Only two types come on X1/x2 models..#410 and TF-8mm

8mm chain is also called T8F chain.
8mm chain has an 8mm (5/16") center to center spacing between each pin and is approximately 10mm (3/8") wide.

When I get the message you get I reload the page and it usually pops up....This site is screwed up but the admins wont do anything about it seeings its barely copeable which is quite acceptable to them..It seems theyre a lil too cheap to hire a real dedicated IT guy not a DIY dabbler to make all 3 formats jive together and run in unison despite one another..........LOL.

One things for certain...I'm on about a dozen forums and let me tell ya jeff turns up on a few as an admin and all of then aren't running correctly either...LOL

Sorry For the long pause, I have had family concerns lately so everything not family was put away in the oven. I got the T8F chain with no problems. Thanks to all involved And a special thanks to EPR for the considerate offer.
