Campy 11 VS Campy 10

Will a Campy Record 11 chain work with Campy Record 10 set?

Actually, yes it will, but why would you want to? Wait until you really make the switch to an 11 speed drivetrain. To join the chain, you need the new chain tool or yu can get by with a SRAM 10 powerloc.

The 11 speed chain is only .1mm or .004 inch narrower inside the inner plates. The 11 speed cogs are .15mm thinner, the same thickness as Shimano 10 (1.6mm). The 11 speed chainring teeth are also .1mm thinner.

FWIW, you can convert a Campy 10 drivetrain to 11 speed with nothing but the shifters, cassette, chain and a minor modification to the RD cable clamp bolt (to increase the actuation ratio).

I always wondered, what would happen if you throw a 10 speed chain into a normal Park chain tool, used carefully? Bent plates, or is it possible? Never mind using it on 11-speed, but can you do it with 10-speed chains?

How else are you going to install a 10 speed chain?

I should have said vs. using the Campy tool. Will the $29 Park or Shimano tool work fine?

All modern chain tools are 10 speed compatible. I've got an older Park chain tool that works with 10 or even 11 speed chains, just with a little modification. The center support on an older tool may hit the inner plate and not allow the outer plate to be properly supported at the back of the tool. A little filing to reduce the thickness of the center support fixed that. The side of the support near the drive pin needs the filing.

A 10 speed chain won't fit into the new 11 speed chain tool.
