    After reading several threads at this forum regarding chains, cleaning and lubrication, I have noticed a trend in the views of the forum responders that shy against the KMC chain. What is the reason?

    The chain that came on my V-rex is a KMC Z9000 that is standard from RANS. I ordered the Hostel Shoppe Catalog and in the chain section do not see a reference to this chain, or a cross reference to another brand. I do see sram and shimano 11' chains.

    Does the v-rex use an 11' chain?
    What is the sram or shimano replacement chain number?
    What is the difference between a PC59 and PC99?
    What does HG stand for (Hollow Ground?)?
    What constitutes a HG?

    Thanks for your help.

    Bent newby.
