    M endurance chain stretch

    I've read here regarding lubrication and rust, maybe I missed the stretch conversation?
    On my Gen 2 with the endurance chain, The chain was adjusted at 1st service- noticed after 200 miles after the service the chain was saggy and out of range, thought these don't stretch as much as normal chains?

    Judging from all the reports we get on them...they don't seem to be any better than a good quality DID ZVMX chain. I have one of the DID ZVMX chains on my Gen-1...it has a tad over 50k km on it and it's still good. I do have a home made electronic oiler fitted though, which I suspect helps a bit.

    Knew it was too good to be true with the advertised no stretch.

    It seems there is too large a disparity with each individual chain in quality, some being straight up rubbish, some being only a little better than current top options.

    I bit like my lovely partner, I'm sure she came with a low maintenance  and no stretch tag.. both, alas, were false claims... :008: :008: :008: I still love her to bits though.. (just in case she sees my post)  :164:
