i was wondering, how long will a chain last without some of the o-rings in it? i was doing a burnout the other night to finish off a tire and i got a little carried away and popped it, of course all the belts in the tire all wrapped around the wheel and sprocket and wound themselves through the chain as well. when i was cutting out all the belts with my side cutters i noticed that a couple of the o-rings had been cut and were coming out from between the side plates of the chain and one was missing completely.
should i even worry about it or get a new chain? it has about 17,000k on it and its on a gixxer 1000.
