    Technically, I think I understand the differences. It seems like the space chain will be easier to lube properly and slightly lighter. Are there other pros/cons I’m not aware of?

    I’ve used DID hard pin chains (219) on World Formula for years.  I change them at the beginning of the season.  I’ve never broken one due to just mechanical wear (only from wrecking one on a curb).  In my opinion for 4-cycle the space chains aren’t worth the extra expense, especially if you’re already running 35.

      We run the DID on our animals in road racing. I change the chain out at the beginning of the season unless I do something STUPID. Proper lubrication is critically. We run chain wax .
