Hi Does anyone know which brand of chain is used on UK bikes? Alternatively which brand of soft link is compatible. Thanks

My 2015 XR has a Regina ZRP, not had to adjust it for 9K miles. I thoroughly clean it with WD40 which doesn't seem to damage the o-rings every 2-3 weeks, and use Silkolene Pro Chain Synthetic lube which is by far the longest lasting stuff I've used.
I ride the XR almost every day in all weathers too.

Cheers - I'm not looking replace the chain, I've bought a smaller rear sprocket and may need to shorten it. I'm recovering from a knee op so can't look at the chain myself at the moment, so just prepping.
