Is this #35 master link good for high RPM? I am using an 11-tooth sprocket at 8,000 RPM. Thank you.
A: Chain manufacturers rate #35 chain as permissibly transmitting .49 Hp at 8000 rpm with an 11 tooth sprocket. The use of slip-fit master/connecting links can de-rate that figure by as much as 30%. It doesn't seem like the best choice, no.
