FWIW, you get what you pay for with drive chains...more $$ = better quality, better looks, higher tensile strength, and longer life. That's not to say a $50 chain is junk, but it won't last as long as a $200 chain...and yes, you usually can put on four $50 chains (not to mention sprockets) for one $200 chain. Of course, you can ruin a $200 chain as easily as a $50 chain if you don't maintain and adjust it properly.
Just my $.02
Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is
you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.
