What is the difference between #40 and #41 roller chain?

#420 will have more strength than the #41 chain because the side plates will be taller. #40 will be the beefiest chain in this class. This will help with thicker sprockets since there is more room between the side plates. #41 will look just like the #420 chain, but will stand shorter.
