    Wouldnt hurt. I've seen people do it both ways with no ill effects. Yet......

    I would think the chance of premature wear would be very high

    If chain is centred on the gears, later design is 5 links wide not 3 like the original, (may need wider guides) why would it move? That’s surely only as likely as the thinner chain falling off the gears? You just have link off the side not running on a sprocket?

    The chain is wider on 16+ and will move around once running if you are using the thinner gears of the earlier models
