That still doesn't make sense, from an engineering standpoint. My understanding is that the chains are stretching, not wearing. If that's true, oil or change intervals wouldn't have anything to do with that failure. It would be a weakness in the chain material.

Add to the fact that, if it were the oil that was breaking down prematurely, other components (bearings, can lobes, cylinder walls) would be damaged too. I assume that isn't happening. Until someone can post up a technical reason why this happens, I'm not buying the oil explanation.
