Description

Description

This KMC X8 chain is an excellent choice for your bike! This is a nicely polished chain that provides excellent riding qualities. Durable materials were used and the links are nickel-plated. This ensures your chain will last. This chain is suited for 2x8 and 3x8 shifting groups and comes with a KMC Missing Link. This link enables you to easily attach and detach your chain.

Note:
KMC use the same boxes for the X8 chains. However, the product number BX08NG114 and barcode 4715575890647 show that this is the KMC X8 Silver/Grey chain, which was previously called the KMC X8.93 chain.

Technology

• 1/2" X 3/32"
• Pin Length: 7.3 mm
• Weight: 324 grams

Assembly

Cut to length with a chain breaker
When you buy a chain, it's always too long. That means that you always need to cut it to length, and you do this using a chain breaker (also called a chain rivet tool). You can view our selection of chain breakers here. Some multi-tools contain a chain breaker. Make sure that you select a chain breaker for the right speed chain though - the size of the pins is different according to the speed of the chain.

Tips for fitting your chain
When fitting or removing this chain it's useful to remove some tension from the chain at the point where you want to break it or close the link. You can do this by making a hook from an old spoke, but some chain breaker tools actually include a handy hook precisely for this purpose. You use it to hook the part of the chain you want to work on, pulling the tension off it. You can read a detailed explanation of how to replace your chain in this blog.

Measure chain wear often
A chain wear tool makes it easy to see when your chain is worn, so that you can replace it timeously. You can find chain wear tools here.

User tips

How often should I wash my bike? Regular washing will keep your bike in good nick. It ensures that the parts on your bike last longer so that you can enjoy cycling happiness for longer. How often you should wash your bike is largely dependent on what sort of weather conditions you ride in. Are you always out there, come rain or shine? Or are you strictly a fair-weather cyclist? It all has an influence on the degree of wear on bike parts, and some of us have to wash our bikes more regularly than others. Refer to the plan below as a general guideline:

October to March:
• Wash every 200 km
• Rinse after every ride
• Dry and lube the chain after every ride
• Let the bike dry at room temperature

April to September:
• Wash every 300 km
• Rinse after a ride in the rain
• Dry and lube the chain after rinsing or washing
• Let the bike dry at room temperature

Good chain for my fitness bike, drove 7000 km with my previous one. Not mouse quiet though, but certainly not annoying.

Good choice.

- R. 4 July 2021

Chain looks fine. Unfortunately, it was about 20 links too short. Didn't count correctly with the old chain. As the longer ones were not in stock, I ordered one more and am making the chain out of two pieces. Is cheaper than one long one.

Pros & Cons

Neat chain
