    Used and Unknown hours on IWIS timing chain

    Does anyone know if there is a clear way to know if a timing chain should be replaced or reused if hours are not known? The service manual displays, bending the chain side to side as a visual.. But is there a sure way to tell if the chain should be replaced? Thank you

    For the cost, especially on a 4tec. Just put a new one in and no worries.

    Agreed, when in doubt, change it out. Sounds like you're trying to skimp on your build tiderider. Build it right the first time and have peace of mind knowing you did it right the first time. The saying "pay me now or pay me later" holds a lot of truth.
