Dam come to think about it.....I just put on a brand new chain and sprocket set. It just hit it's 500 mile mark... Should have oiled it up when I got home.
The rubber actually expands at a greater rate than the metal. So a warm chain's oring seals better than a cold chain, infact. The only real chance you have of getting oil past the o-ring is in extremely cold conditions.
