Tentative selection is complete.
Check the following allowable load of rollers and attachments.

A chain that suits the inputted load conditions could not be found.

Check Allowable Load

Allowable Roller Load

Make sure the roller load is smaller than the values in the table above. If the roller load is larger than the values shown, refer to the table below and use a size that can handle the load.

This value is for when there is lubrication between rollers and bushes.
