If you have a 450 or better...spend the extra on a chain that will last and last and last if you treat it like your brother. This D.I.D chain is a beast! Comes prelubed/with master link.
D.I.D is the number one motorcycle chain in the world. D.I.D chains are used by factory races teams from all manufacturers in race series everywhere.
D.I.D's Pro-Street X-RingŪ VX Series Chains are high quality X-RingŪ chains with superior strength to withstand the horsepower of today's dual sports and trials bikes. The VX Series uses D.I.D's patented low friction X-RingŪ for maximum performance.
Half the Power Loss - Compared with Normal O-ring chains, D.I.D's patented X-RingŪ construction reduces friction by twisting between the side plates instead of being squashed. Normal O-rings and other makers' modified O-rings have squashed points that increase friction. The twisting action of the X-RingŪ disperses the pressure and minimizes power loss.
1.5 to 2 Times Longer Wear Resistance - Compared with Normal O-ring chains, the X-Ring's four contact points greatly increase its sealing performance. This keeps the dirt out and the lubrication in much better than any other O-ring. X-RingsŪ have the greatest wear resistance of any other type of O-ring or non-O-ring chain.
Note for installing X-ring chains: As X-ring chains are wider than standard roller chains, when fitting an X-ring chain to a motorcycle that was fitted with a non O-ring chain as original equipment, it is essential to check that there is proper clearance of the engine cases near the countershaft sprocket and any other places of close contact. Failure to do so could result in damage to the chain and motorcycle and could ultimately cause the chain to fail.
