I wanna take the chain of my bike this weekend and give it a good clean.

Its a SRAM PC1031 with a power link/lock which i understand is non reusable.

Can these be use with SRAM chains?

    choose the shimano compatible ones, they are fine with sram chains

    I have reused the same SRAM Powerlink over 10 times now with no effect. There is a thread on it somwhere. As long as you dont butcher it when you take it off you can re use it.

    KMC Reusable Missing Links are designed to be reusable, whereas Sram Powerlinks are designed to be non-reusable.

    Seriously, we make two kinds of links - reusable and non-reusable and there are different dimensions in the seat to both.

    Yes they are 8) Well they may be in Decathlon packets, but when you take them out they are stamped KMC
