Cryogenically Treated Primary Chains

 

Cryo Info
As most of you know OEM primary chains can fail at 8,000 to 10,000 miles on any kind of a high performance motor, that is why we now offer our primary chains cryo treated. These chains have gone through a cryogenic treatment, which involves taking the chains down to temperatures of minus 300 degrees Fahrenheit. What this does is rearranges the molecular structure of the item being treated, making them more uniform and evenly spread. Why is this good? Well, after this process is complete the item treated has increased tensile strength and resistance to wear.

In other words it makes stuff stronger and last longer!

 

I used to have to adjust my Yamaha motorcycle chain after the first run because it would stretch. After cryo-treatment, the chains don't stretch at all, and the treatment also keeps cam chains from breaking. I haven't broken a chain since I started cryo-treating all of my parts.

Step #2: Chain Treatment

Years ago, we always wondered what lubricants were used on the inside of the chains when being made. We also wondered how long it would take for oil to penetrate through the side plates to lubricate chain rollers and pins.

After cutting and inspecting the inside of new and pre-owned chains, we have developed a procedure that will double or triple chain life. The chains are Cryo treated and followed up by putting them in vibrator tub for days with break-in oil to penetrate the links.

It works great.

Cycle X Cryo Treated High Performance Primary Chains

Quote:
"We've tried every chain on the market for the past 4+ decades. These chains are the best."
Quote: 
(E-mail) "What ever happened to the Cryo performance chains on the website? We need them for a few builds."

We have been receiving phone calls and emails from performance minded people wanting our performance primary chains again. Some people are willing to wait to assemble their motor until the chains are officially back in stock.

The chains are being cryo treated and should be done in a week or two. It's worth the wait!

Tsubaki Cam Chains

Tsubaki cam chains have been known to be the best for decades.
Tsubaki has discontinued making these chains and many engine builders were freaking out. Well, no need to panic. We have a limited supply of these chains and we will also offer them in a cryo treated version. These cryo treated Tsubaki chains will clearly be the best chains ever offered to the Honda CB750 community.
Straight side plates.

Cam Chain Tensioners...Here is the Problem!

The above photos show an OEM Honda tensioner and an unidentified aftermarket tensioner. These photos were from an AHRMA vintage roadracer's bike (thanks Matt Esterline #237) and clearly show the problem. The OEM tensioner lasted approx. 3 weekend races and the aftermarket tensioner approx. 10 weekend races. These types of product malfunctions are exaggerated when racing is involved, but racing makes for a good test because these results happen in street bikes as well.

Note: Matt's bike is using an OEM stock cam chain tensioner rather than a manual tensioner that has been overadjusted.

Full Floating, Self Compensating Cam Chain Tensioner

These cam chain tensioners are designed to float and compensate for milled heads, thinner gaskets, worn/stretched cam chains and hard deceleration which destroys OEM tensioners. The arrows show how the sliders can move a few degrees to compensate for the above mentioned problems.

Features:

Proven XPA 46 slider material.
Floating/compensating design.
No more than four chain links unsupported.
Front slider is longer with a gentle curve.
Stock length cam chains, peanut or straight side plates are fine.

Note: Fixed slider designs shift the pressure points upward and only make contact at the very top when thinner gaskets, milling and stretched chains.

 

This project presented several obstacles that needed the expertise of a world class machine shop in the great state of Texas. With a combination of 3D imaging, motor cut-a-ways and proven XPA-46 materials, no expense was spared. This floating/self compensating design and highly accurate machining processes surely makes this a candidate for product of the decade (we like saying that).

Done!!!

Front Cycle X Slipper

If you are on a budget, this front cam chain slipper will be sold separately and is a major upgrade because of the gentle bend or curve that cam chains need.
Great Cycle X product.
