Scaling Objects with a path constraint

I have built a control rig for a bike chain using a path curve for the links to travel along. Everything works like a charm, except when I scale the the rig, the chain links do not scale. The path curve scales perfectly and the chain links respect the curve as it scales but remain their original size :/ If I select the links individually, I can scale them with no problem. I am stumped.

This rig needs to be scalable. Any help is much appreciated.

Sorry... I am still trying to solve this.

Anyone who has any clue to a solution, I would be grateful for your thoughts.

will it scale up if you group the whole rig then scale the group?

I have tried that but unfortunately it behaves the same whether it is grouped or linked.

Again, what is curious to me is that the links can be scaled no problem individually. Any parent to the links being scaled has no effect on them. However they still stay on the path.
