Hey thinking about finally buying a wippermann chain but I run a Ratchet. As some of you may know not alot of beefy chains will run on this chain well. Does anyone know if this or the KMC 415H Street chain will fit or am I pushing my luck? Thanks

Going off of Chuck's Ratchet and 1g8, it WILL work but you will have to run a 10t driver and file the teeth on it. The pins will also rub the hubshell, but after it wears a small groove into the hubshell it will work no problems.

415H has slightly wider pins than the 1g8 so it would rub the shell too much to function properly.

I suggest just getting the Keychain, it drops May 27 and Empire is accepting pre-orders NOW.

Due to the longer distance between the roller and edge of the link, the 415h will not mesh properly with any driver that has shoulders on either side of the teeth. I would definitely steer clear of that thing. The pins are also wider, as Timmay! said.
