Will an SRAM gold power link work on Shimano 9-speed chains?

The package says use on chains other than a coupld SRAM chains listed
"WILL result in chain failure", but that may be their lawyers
talking...

The mechanic at my LBS said no, but I recall a post on this NG saying
it would work on Shimano 10-speed chains...

Thanks,
Michael

I don't know about 10-speed, but it's fine on 9-speed. It's probably
SRAM's marketing people talking, rather than their lawyers. They want
you to buy a SRAM chain.

I'm using a Shimano DA 9 chain with SRAM "gold" 9 powerlink, works
well on my *mutt* bike, which has Campy 9 ergo shifter/Campy 9 rear
der, Shimano 9 hub/cassette.....

I use the SRAM Power Link 2 on 9 speed Campagnolo chains and 9 speed
Shimano chains. I know someone who uses the SRAM link on Shimano
chains on a tandem that made it through PBP 1999.
