Default O- ring or non o-ring, that is the question!

Is there a reason not to go with the non o-ring chain? For the cost you can buy 2-3 of them before a single o-ring chain. Any thoughts on the non o-ring? Just wondering before I spend the money!

Go with the O-Ring (or x-ring). If you get a non-o-ring chain wet, it will rust in the pinholes and joints, get stiff and not move smoothly making the chaing more likely to snap and crack open your case. It will cost you a lot more to patch up an engine case than the amount it will save you going without o-rings

Non o-ring chains work better in sandy conditions,just lube it often(wax)and it will not rust

Non- oring chains will give you a very very slight increase in power, i run non-oring, and will never run another o-ring . They are too expensive 100 dollars for a freakin chain is insane, i can buy 4 non oring chains for that price and ride longer on them.

I bought a Parts Unlimited X-ring chain and it was just has cheap as a regular chain. It seems to be holding up better then a non oring chain too.

Non-O-ring chain = sand and close MX

O-ring chain = everywhere else
