Description Item #DID000E

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 engineers are continuously improving chain designs in order to handle the tremendous horsepower loads of today's high performance motorcycles. In developing the new DID ZVM-X series, D.I.D focused on "Rigidity." Traditionally, "Tensile Strength" has been the bench-mark to indicate overall strength, but tensile strength is only a laboratory static measurement of a chain's fracture point. Rigidity, on the other hand, is the ability of a chain to withstand the forces that occur in the real world that riders experience. Increased rigidity means better power transfer from the engine to the ground, greater resistance to stretching under load, and overall improved performance that meets the demands of the current high-power bikes and the people who ride them.

  • Increased rigidity for better power transfer and greater resistance to stretching under load.
  • Overall improved performance that meet the demands of the current high-power bikes.
  • Designed to meet requirements of machines bigger than 1000cc.
  • Same excellent characteristics of the ZVM chains, but its new X2-ring design provides 40 percent greater wear resistance and better overall chain life.
  • Average tensile strength of 10,408 pounds.
  • Wear life index: 4000.
  • For use on Superbikes; maximum rated displacement 1400cc.
  • Weight (per 100 links): 4.85 pounds.
  • Includes a rivet-style master link.

Half the Power Loss - Compared with Normal O-ring chains, D.I.D's patented X-Ring 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-Ring 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-Rings have the greatest wear resistance of any other type of O-ring or non-O-ring chain.

This chain is beautiful in appearance and extremely well made. While the master link is perfectly machined, for anyone planning on installing this chain him or herself, make sure you can rivet a master link. This chain looks to be higher quality than the OEM part, which lasted about 17k on a CBR1000RR..

Love the feel of a new chain

Only have 1000 miles on this chain,thus far. It was easy to cut with an angle grinder and then rivet the new chain on,with the motionpro jumbo chain tool.The chain looks good and feels strong.I'm looking forward to getting a lot of good miles out of it.

Stronger than OEM

Works great on R1, looks good too!


Great service , extremely quick shipping and the product is DID quality. With right tools to install a great chain with no worries down the road. Get 20 thousand miles on my chains and change out winter cycle. Its the DID or top the line RK. Can't risk the cheap stuff on a long ride ZX-14.

Quality Pays Back

I ride a lot! I needed a chain that will last and not need adjustment as often. I am very pleased with this DID ZVMX X-Ring Gold so far! Less time maintaining more time to ride!

A: This chain does include a rivet type master link. The chain will need to be cut to length, and then you will need a rivet tool to install the master link. We do offer the Motion Pro Chain Breaker/Press/Riveting Tool which is an all in one tool that has the required provisions to cut the chain to length and install the master link.

A: Yes it comes with the rivet style master link which is the strongest type used for superbikes. A special chain rivet tool must be used on this type of masterlink. If you are not familiar with this tool, then probably be best to get a professional installation. This masterlink is mandatory on liter size bikes. Make sure your sprockets are for a 530 chain also. You should always replace both front and rear sprockets with a new chain since they wear together. Since there are many different sizes of sprockets(number of teeth) available, you will need to decided how many links chain you will need. It is better to get a chain a few links longer than you need and use a chain breaker after installing the chain on the new sprockets to determine the correct length.
