Will a Wippermann Titanium 10 speed chain work on a Dura-Ace 9 speed drivetrain? I think this model's width only differs by .3mm between the two sizes.

Is that enough to cause any adverse effects?

Err... let me rephrase the question.

I'm not an expert on tolerances, etc., but is a difference of .3mm substantial enough to cause problems (premature wear or skipping).

I only used the Wippermann Ti chain because it lists two widths for 9 vs. 10. I was wondering if it even mattered all that much.

If there is a chocie of widths,I'd use the proper one, just for 'correctness'.
