Difference between 420 & 428 chain?

I need to change the drive sprocket on my sons Maxam 50cc atv & it has 428 chain on it but the only sprocket I can find that will work is from a 1982 Yamaha LB50P Chappy Scooter & it uses 420 chain.
 
Can someone please tell me the difference in the two chains & if I can use a 420 sprocket on 428 chain.
I also found an 8mm sprocket that will fit my shaft but once again I am not sure of the chain fit.

    Call a bearings and drives unlimited.They can get you a sprocket for anything ever built known to man.I know they are in the states but it would work and is prolly one of the only options you have.no the 2 sizes are not compatible.They might "work" for a little while but they will quickly kill the chain,the sprocket or both at the same time.or just google a industrial drive supplier.with your measurements and sizes in hand they can be very helpful.

    The question about chains has to do with the distance between roller centers. 420,428,520 are all different and do not interchange. I would call the manf or someone who makes sprockets (renthal, talon, etc) and see what they can do or what they have.
