So I want to go 16 x 46 with a pulldown tensioner do I use a 81 link chain or 82, or does it matter. I've had a few 81s fall to bits on the half link with 17 x 46 so I think 82 may be better but will it be to slack. :roll:

I'm using an IWIS 81 link chain with pull down tensioner on my 16 x 46 set up, been in for over 10k miles without any issues
