We have put this chain through torture on a Raptor 727 big bore and it seems to be holding up great. We live on a property in Australia that is quite rocky, dusty, dry and have had numerous problems with chains before breaking, stretching, derailing and destroying crankcases. This chain has minimal stretch, built tough and really is designed for hard ATV riding.
Renthal 520 R4 ATV Z-Ring Chain

Renthal's R4 ATV Chain is a premium strength Z-ring chain with excellent impact load resistance, designed specifically to withstand the stress found in ATV applications. The R4 chain features a heavier duty construction process and materials than the standard Renthal R3-2 O-ring chain which increases its service life and tensile strength. The patented "spring effect" Z-rings guarantee constant lubrication for longer life and pins manufactured from special alloy steel also contribute to better resistance from wear. Thicker side plates and a quad riveting manufacturing process round out the upgrades on this ATV-specific chain.
- Patented Z-ring seals dramatically increase the life of the chain.
- Larger diameter pins manufactured from specially enhanced steel improve the resistance to shock loads.
- A quad riveting process on each pin increases the tensile strength of the chain.
- Thicker inner and outer plates increase the fatigue life of the chain.
- Available in 520 pitch only.
- Average tensile strength of 8,093 pounds.
- Each chain includes a pair of latex gloves for mess free installation.
- Note: The Renthal R4 chain is supplied with both an easy-fit split master link and a superior solid-pin rivet master link which matches the durability of the chain.
This chain is very durable, performs great, and looks sick with the gold plating. However, it was a pain to install. The master link for the chain was difficult to snug into the joining links. I had to clamp it together at the risk of damaging the link. I also had a few links cut off due to the fact that I ordered a larger rear sprocket for my bike. All in all, this is an excellent chain that I expect to last in the years riding to come.
great product.. but when i got the chain it was alot longer than it needed to be.so i had to do mods to it to get it to fit.. which in my opinion should not have to do..if u order a chain for your atv it should fit right on.. would have sent it back but we was taking a riding trip that weekend and i recieved it on friday....
I just had this chain installed and only had 1 ride on it before I went to Hatfield Mc Coy trails in WV. I only needed to adjust the chain ONCE after 5 days of hard riding. If your looking for a good chain get this one .
Just purchased this chain and after one ride it just snapped in half. It yanked the sprocket guard off breaking part of the case where the bolts go into the motor. I am extremely upset with this product and just getting ready to contact renthal now. I thought it sounded like a heavy duty chain and thought it was a good idea to purchase. Don't recommend, stick with you standard chains, they work much better!!
Chain comes pre-greased with some tacky stuff so make sure and wear gloves. Easy to run, easy to hook up. Running flawlessly with Tag sprockets
I have run Renthal for years and this is the first one I have dah brake on me in the second ride. And no it was not the master link it was a link in the chain. The proformance of the chain is outstanding when it was first put on.
strong, durable, heavy duty. this chaing has it all. never will go back to any other chain.
very nice chain, strong and durable.would buy again.
