D.i.d x-ring top notch

D.i.d x-ring what else can you say.you want a durable chain that will never need adjusting,this is it. I wouldn't toss it on a small bore bike but great for a 450 and 250 2t up

Seems good, will see how it holds up

Like a couple other posters here said, the masterlink doesn't go together well.
Had to gently drill the plate holes out just a bit, which is kind of unnerving when its going on a xr650r. O,o
Wasn't hard to drill though, and was easy to break to length.
Seems as good as the oem was, but time will tell.
(got an XR's only case saver, just for luck... knock wood)

Excellent Chain

I have always used DID chains on my bike when doing maintenance. They have never let me down, are competitively priced, and look great. What more can you ask for?

While X-Ring chains may cost slightly more, they don't stretch as much and last longer and don't require as much maintenance as traditional or O-Ring chains.

DID 520 VX2 on 2009 CRF450R

Just put it on recently, did a few test laps in the back lot then went on a 30-35mile rough single track trail ride. Looks great, rides great, no slack adjustment yet and I'm 260lbs.

Good stuff

So I ordered black thinking it'd be like their street chain... ALL BLACK. Well it's not. The outer links are gold and the inner links are black. Anyways, that's why I gave it an average rating on style. Other than that the chain is great!

DID VX2 X ring 2011 CRF 450 R

Chain rubbed engine case on a 2011 CRF 450r. They make spacers to allow for x-ring use on this bike but i recommend staying with a standard chain like an ERT or R1 from Renthal. Caught it in time changing the gearing or would have had an expensive problem.

One of the best chains available for off road

You can complete a full season of GNCC on this chain. No issues.

Solid chain, heavy for sure

Great chain, very strong and the install was pretty simple. I ride a 2014 KX450 and the heavier chain and additional friction of the x-ring over the stock chain meant I had to keep the power on up jumps I could previously roll off the throttle on with the factory chain. Not a problem, just took a few laps to get used to it. Really excited about how long they last.

Well worth the money

I have been using this chain all spring, summer, and fall. I go out and ride pretty hard at least twice a week. The chain shows no sign of wear and hasn't stretched at all. Still looks brand new. You will want to get new sprockets before you put it on so you don't wear it out after a couple of rides.

Durable and dope looking

That's right, I said the thing looks dope. And it does. Has been a very durable chain. Take care of it and it will last forever. Plus, as I've mentioned, you'll want to keep this gold clean so you can see the bling. Stuntin' like my daddy with this gold chain.

Good buy but wrong color (no biggie)

I ordered black and got a silver. NOT Motosport's fault. They don't even offer silver and the package was marked black from DID. Customer service said they would make it right but I was in a hurry and it looks fine anyways.

Needed a better chain and decided to go X-Ring because of tensile strength and reduction in wear compared to even O-Rings in the long haul. Great chain and it holds up extremely well. Take care of your chain with proper lube and it will last. Mine has been on for two years and still no slide from side to side. Will buy again from here! I use Motul no fling chain lube or Maxim Chain Wax.

Ignore the link issues they speak of...

Everyone complains that the link plate holes are too small because they don't know how to install a new chain. The holes are tight on the pins on purpose guys. You need to use the chain break to press the plate onto the pins. Vise grips and pliers aren't the right tools for the job, they don't put even pressure around the circumference of the pin and cause it to bind, so you'll end up bending the plate before it goes together. Use the right tools and it will take 5 minutes or less.

D.I.D chains rule.

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.

Master link holes too small

This is a nice o-ring chain but as other people have said, the master link doesn't fit. The holes are far too small to fit the master link and I had to drill them out a bit to get them to go over the heads on the link. Other than that it is a solid chain.

Master does not fit

I also had the same issue with the master link not fitting. I have installed 2 of these chains with the same issue on both. I had to drill out the master link plate to the next size. The steel is heat treated making it difficult to drill. I dont know if the holes in the plate were made too small or the pins are "mushroomed'" at the end.

A: No, you should be fine running this chain on your 2002 Honda CR250R without running any kind of spacer. The only Honda that would require a spacer for an X-Ring Chain would be the 2002 - 2008 Honda CRF450 models.

Also my old chain is non o-ring what do I need to do to fit the larger/wider X-ring on it without rubbing?
MotoSportRyanT
MotoSport Staff Expert

A: This would be a great chain for you. The X-Rings would help keep the lubrication in chain and keep the sand out of your chain better than your standard roller chain. Also, you should not have to modify anything on that bike to run an X-RIng Chain. If everything is properly installed there should not be an issue with anything rubbing.

Q: Hi! Need replace chain?
Over 3 years ago
standard chain is 520 ZRA / Regina 110/15/45, can I use this one (DID 520 VX2 X-Ring Black Chain - 120 Links) and OEM sprocket? Need replace sprocket also? Thank's.
MotoSportExpert

Over 3 years ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
A: The DID VX2 would absolutely fit in place of the Regina 520 ZRA. It would also fit just fine with the stock sprocket. The chains do come in bulk length so it will need to be shortened to length but other than that will fit just fine.
Acer
Over 3 years ago Location: Unionville, IN, USA
A: You always want to replace sprocket and chain at the same time. A used chain will wear out new sprockets more quickly and vice versa
