"He insists he fits O-ring chains on CB500s that are no problem"

They fit on there and apparently work OK but: no problem for quite a few miles until the chain wears through the oil seal... then yes, problem.

Bodi, O-ring chains happen to vary in width. I'm sure that that dealer, who does rebuilds om a daily basis, has selected such an O-ring that does fit.

Money is like manure. It's not worth a thing unless it's spread around.

Digging through my inventory i found these two sprockets. I wonder if these sprockets marked "450" are made for the 450 dohc? they dont have the edge and are about 1.45mm smaller on each side.
other one is marked 750. Could it really be as simple as purchasing one of these sprockets to enable oring use? i havent measure the pitch etc on the sprocket but judging by eye it seems to the same as the other sprocket.
