cy<< I discovered that I am running an 8 speed chain on a 9 speed Shimano cassette. It shifts very
well. Outside of the weight am I doing any damage?

Nope and what 'weight'???>

Then why does Shimano make 8-speed and 9-speed chains, if they're interchangable?

A wider chain has to weigh more. According to my Shimano sources about 30 grams. Thanks for
the answer.
