The only bike I run cheap non O-ring chains on is my dual sport, which is mostly used off road. The silica sand here in AZ chews up the O-rings. I have several chains for this bike. It only takes a couple of minutes to swap them out. After a day of riding, I remove the chain, and drop in into a gallon jug of used motor oil, and let it soak. I usually have a couple soaking at the time. When I get ready to go for a ride, I take one of them out, hang it over a bucket and let it drip for a couple hours, and put it on the bike. I just keep rotating the chains. But that is not practical on a street bike, and the consequences of a broken chain on the street are likely to be far more serious than while riding off road.
Even though a Rebel does not make much power, I would get the best chain available, and take care of it. It will be safer, and in the long run it will pay for itself. Because the Rebel is a low power bike, a good O-ring chain will last practically forever.
