Description Item #REN001D

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.

Great quality chain

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.

Excellent...but, a pain to install

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 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....

Awesome chain

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 .

I would not recommend this chain!!

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

It broke

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.

Q: Is zring better than o-ring or is the same?

A: The z-ring chain technically has better sealing properties to protect the internal rollers from contamination and keep the lube in.. The o-ring chains only have one sealing edge where x-ring and z-ring chains have multiple sealing edges for better protection.

Q: Regarding chain links...?
Over 3 years ago
My ATV (2003 Suzuki LTZ-400) has stock gearing of 14 front and 40 rear, and uses a 96 link chain. I want to change to 13 front and 40 rear, I am under the impression I will still use a 96 link chain, please confirm. Also, since I see many chains don't sell a '96 link' chain, is the idea that I would purchase the chain with more links then I need, and I would remove the extra links? Do I need a master link in this case? Is there a specific tool used for this? Anything I need to be aware of when considering O ring vs non-O ring chains? Many thanks in advance for your help. PS. Also any suggestions/recommendations for gearing would be appreciated. I wanted a little more torque, and think it's easir to go down a front tooth then up 2 in the back.

A: You are correct in your assumption that you will still be fairly close to the stock chain length. We sell our chains in a standard length that allows enough links for just about any gear ratio, all you need to do is fit the chain. This involves taking out the links that aren't needed and is common to use a chain breaker to do so. The master link is provided with the chain. If you are looking for a little more bottom end or torque- you are fine with going one tooth down like you are thinking.

A: Normally the chains will be cut to fit, but the only way to find out exactly how many links would be to count them
