Unless they spot welded the links together to make it solid, I dont see how a simple chain would work, to much slop in it other wise.

^ That's just weird. I'd rather not head butt the tank in a panic break...

also another note on the dog leash.. if you look real close, you can see that there is a steal rod ran through the middle of it, and it is tied onto the rod with a piece of wire.

i don't know how a Triumphs shifter is set up but i can't see how that would work shifting up and down. seems it would go one or the other but not both. i magnified that pic as much as my laptop would let me and that chain doesn't appear welded at each link.

the chain isn't welded... it covers the actual linkage rod. the rod attatches to the clip on the shift shaft side and to the shifter itself. the chain is just a cover, just like a piece of chrome conduit.
