I am trying to identify the Ripcurrent S chain part number from KMC. My chain is 128 links. I think I may have to custom make the length. Does any know an Amazon link to a replacement chain?
I'm showing my ignorance here but I'm new to eBikes. What's the noticeable difference with a chain like this vs. say the one that Juiced sells for the RipCurrent S?Not sure if anyone cares, buy I have a Wipperman Connex 9SE chain on my RCS. This chain is made for the rigors of a mid-drive ebike and is to my knowledge the only ebike specific 9 speed chain available. Not only is it a super well-made chain, but is has a quick link, so the chain can be removed quickly w/o tools. It's will need to be sized for your application, but it's a definite drive system upgrade to your Current series ebike.
I found a brand new Wipperman Connex 9SE 136 link for $29.99 with free shipping on ebay. It comes with their master link which requires no tools for a 3-second installation or removal of the chain. This chain is miles better than the KMC OEM RCS chain. You will need to size it with a chain breaker just like the KMC.I purchased a replacement chain from Juiced. $25 plus $5 shipping. You have to use a chain breaker to remove and install the stock chain. I still am using the original chain after checking it was still good. I am not easy on my chain with trail riding. I know when my chain goes I will have a replacement ready.
I don't know about RipCurrent, but for CrossCurrent I found 128 links was way too long.I am trying to identify the Ripcurrent S chain part number from KMC. My chain is 128 links. I think I may have to custom make the length. Does any know an Amazon link to a replacement chain?
