GB Power Transmission’s South Australian Distributor, Australian Production Line Maintenance (APMS) have put the new GB series motorcycle chain to test. APMS Managing Director, Don Murfitt, entered and completed the Finke desert race using the GB 520 O-ring chain.
Riding in the 2008 Race on his YZ-250 Yamaha motocross bike, Don put chain and bike through 450kms of some of the roughest desert racing in Australia. The spare chain was not required as the GB series O-ring chain completed the race in good condition.
The new GB series motorcycle chains are now available around Australia from stocking distributors. All the popular chain sizes are stocked in bulk and pre-cut lengths to suit most makes and models. Chain comes in standard, heavy duty, O-Ring and heavy duty O-ring models.
After the race Don had several good comments on the performance of the chain. APMS installed these new chains on the bike for the race and took a spare chain just in case. The chains where inspected at the Finke end and no adjustment was needed. After the grueling finish back into Alice Springs, the chains where again inspected and no adjustment was needed. The chains performed with quality, finishing the race in top condition.
