RK's chains are standard equipment on many marque's machines and it is easy to see why given the quality of those OEM parts. The GBGXW Series Chain is a step up from most of these with a higher strength rating, better corrosion protection and a more stylish appearance. Installing the chain is like installing any chain - a chain tool is required - and it went as expected. Though the chain has only been through a few thousand miles, it does still look new and functions very well. Only more use will tell if it is long-term durable, though.
For now, I can say that I would buy it again - and probably will - and I highly recommend it to anyone with a performance street bike looking to replace an aging driveline.
Everything about this chain is as advertised. It is well-made and as easy to install as any rivet master link would be, provided you have a good tool for this. So far it is perfect, but only time in grade will reveal its ultimate durability.
I got this for my 2004 Kawasaki zx636. I also replaced both sprockets. The gold chain looks really good against the black sprocket. I haven't had any problems with it. Chain comes covered in wax. Comes with a rivet master link. I didn't have the proper tools, so installation was a pain, but thats my fault. : p
Good buy, im happy.
I ride a cbr 1000rr, the outfit is great
the rear sprocket and gold chain looks good on the bike. noticed a differance the first ride after installation. i did the 14/46 combo which was only 1 tooth down in the front. did change my speedo by about 5 mph but thats no big deal since i was more in it for the performance.
This chain is very sleek and stylish. The chain came with a lot of excess oil and wax. The gold looks great and the chain much lighter.
I've ran this chain for 3000 miles so far no worries I havent had to tighten it but once.
Super light chain looks great. It has some rust now on the rivets but it comes off when the chain is cleaned.
I dont like the fact that it comes with a ton of chain grease when you get it
I bought this chain in the Vortex Sprocket Kit. I loved the kit. Great purches. The only problem I had was the chain came with way to much LUB/WAX or whatever it is. It is very hard to clean off. I have a Chrome Swingarm and Rims, it took hours to clean off. So remove befor you put the chain on....Other than that great chain..
Great price and with free 2 day shiping +++
well if your chain does hang low dont waste your time tightening it, Get new sprockets and a brand new chain...RK is the chain used by 2006 motoGP world champ Nicky Hayden, I never thought my bike would be able to do wheelies and just by replacing the chain and sprocket set I can. This chain has been the best thing that happend to my bike and the gold really lets it catch an eye or two when it's parked as well, I would suggest this chain to anyone and the price is hard to beat
Easy install with a breaker and press, a very quiet chain with proper lube and it looks great!
