I've just fitted an 8sp Powerlink to my 8sp HG70 Chain but it doesn't move freely. I've oiled it and ridden it a bit to see if it'll loosen but no joy :(

Are these things just tripe, or not compatible with Shimano chains, or have i just got a duff one?

Nope just the power link.

The chain has only done maybe 150miles.

try and twist it back and for sideways against the links (ie across the bike, in plane its not meant to bend in).

Usually helps when I have a stiffee
