Part: Roller Drive Chain (428 Pitch) for Honda CB175 (K0-K5 & K6*) / (CL175 K0-K5 & K6*)
Why You Need This: Old roller drive chains are often unsafe. Over time they get rusted stiff, stretched out, and sometimes not even on the motorcycle. Drive chains are an important item and we suggest putting a new on your vintage Honda motorcycle before putting it back on the road. Chances are slim that your roller drive chain has seen chain lube in many years - and many times lubing the chain is often overlooked during maintenance. For your safety and peace of mind, change out your old roller chain on your vintage Honda CB175 or CL175. Featuring solid rollers, versus curled rollers (inferior quality found on many economy chains) our high-quality chain is a standard (non O-ring) drive chain with a clip type master link @ 428 pitch. Chains arrive to you cut to the specified length for your CB175. The drive chain comes dry-packed with grease, but it must be lubricated before use. Pick up some Honda Genuine Chain Lube or some old-fashioned Super Lube and get riding. If you have a late style CB175K6 / CB175K7 or CB200 you need our 520 Chain.
Note: Make sure to count your links (inner and outer plates) to get the right length. This is extremely important on the early CB175 (K0-K5) and CL175 due to intermittent sprocket changes in the Honda factories. Use the video below to count the length of your chain. The 428 pitch chain was only used on a limited number of Honda motorcycles listed below based on manufacturing generation. CB175 / CL175 K6 (late) and up use a 520 chain.

Installation Tip: Make sure the retaining clip of the master link is correctly installed - open end facing opposite the chain's direction of travel. We recommend Honda Genuine Chain Lube to lubricated your new chain prior to use, even though it comes dry/grease packed. Remember to lubricate and inspect your chain every 300 to 500 miles / 500 to 800 KM.
