Don't think I've ever seen colored chains with the pins colored as well. Post up if you find any.

not to be a downer, but I'm guessing you wont find one. the plates are finished prior to assembly, but if they did that to the pins they would be marred durring assembly.

Your looking for a chain that is blacked out? I know Volar does colored chains my new chain is blue. The pins are not colored though.

I have to say it..... I know it's not what you want to hear, but I can't stop myself.



it's a chain. not an accessory. I don't get why people want colored ones. It's like the people that came on here a while ago asking about getting tires in colors other than black. Which, believe it or not, they actually made for a while. It didn't last long.

Ride bike.

Ignore chain... Watch it changes colors before your very eyes. Will be black in no time.

I work hard and I play hard.

I'm just like everyone else... only different... and if you don't like it- you can suck it.

With colored chains there are two types of people, those that actively search for a specific color chain and those that get a chain and the chain has multiple available colors. With the chain I was getting for the budget that I had at the time, it had different options of colors so sue me for taking advantage of the options.

Actually with my Motard when I was racing it they were pretty useful, The silver chain went with the 48 tooth rear sprocket the red was for the 44 tooth and the gold went on the 40. Depending on which track I was running and occasional run in the street dictated which gearing I used.
